faster fox’ing

HEY HEY, ready to have your eyes opened? This post will change many lives…

ok, to the men out there, this is how you download porn stronger, FASTER, BETTER!

to the woman… well i’m not quite sure why you’d want these tools… just kidding make your firefox prettier!!! … but most importantly FASTER PORN, what guy can pass on that

Anyways, today I’m going to break down my favorite firefox add-ons, i do not take credit for creating any of these, in fact these developers are AMAZING, and they deserve all the credit. But i truly believe that taking 10 minutes to do this will make your internet browsing experience 1000% better, no joke

But really, spend the 5 minutes of clicking these links, it is totally worth it. and if you don’t have it already GET FIREFOX 3, what are you surfing on if it an’t firefox….crackhead

I’ll break the add ons into categories, first off, Appearance

Ad Block Plus

Ok, ever annoyed of shockwave ads, picture ads, infact almost any kind of ad out there? well you can STOP THEM! installing adblock will reduce 95% of your ads, and for that pesky 5%? you can manually block it so that you’ll never see it again on your favorite websites! (you may need to install grease monkey to use it, i forgot its been too long, grease monkey is a script editing program for firefox,


for those of you that use Google or yahoo to search, this definitely a must, when you preform a search it automatically grabs a screen shot of the page and puts it next to the link, saving you the click, crap wrong page, back

Better Gmail

For those Gmailers out there, you can basically customize your gmail experience and hide a LOT of those annoying boxes, change the colors and create accurate labels

IE Tab

if on the off chance you enter a website on firefox and it renders in a complete disaster, its probably because the webpage was written for IE (internet explorer) so use this handy dandy tab to have an IE load within firefox, saving yourself from opening that cumbersum program


Anyone try google chrome only to uninstall it 15 minutes later? well that was me, but i couldn’t forget that great website cache that pulled up everytime you opened chrome, your favorite websites when you open your browser, all in clear organized thumbnails. Well speedtabs does just that so go get it!


Perhaps the only thing i miss from Internet Explorer, the tab behaviors, I was sick of pressing CTRL+T to open a new tab only to have the URL from my old tab disappear, well, you can have that back with this you can also change the behavior of opening a new tab to open your home page or another pre-defined URL


for those of with faster computers (i have a 1.6 Ghz centrino with 1.5 gig of ram dell 700m and it isn’t worth the resourse trade off) this is definately a visually pleasing program, hover over any link and get a preview of that page! it works on any link unlike google preview which works only for yahoo and google


Perhaps the most visually pleasing thing i’ve ever seen for firefox, this program creates a 3D wall of images for a search of a wealth of sites: yahoo flcker amazon youtube… just search something and drool a little. its visually pleasing, and will ohh and awe people but the lack of support for other sites brings it down a little on my efficiency list, but definitely worth it if you are the type that dresses to impress and this program is a bit of a resource hog so same caveat as before newer comp…sigh…

And for the woman…spice up your firefox with these themes

Black theme:

Silver theme:


Baby Blue

Ok for the guys!

DOWNLOADING (p0rn)….just kidding

Video Downloadhelper

ever see an embedded video/song that you just wish you had, well wish no more, download helper will find that stream and let you take it where you please! works on 99% of streamed information. please don’t abuse this program though, artists and the creative community still need your support!


For those of you who have ever been to a website and needed to download a bunch of pictures, files or other things. this program will save you that time, it allows you to type in extensions to narrow down files and download them in one click. So if you need to download a bunch of word documents just type in .doc in the extension and it’ll do it for you, it has many extensions already categorized, pictures (jpeg gif png) videos (mp4 wmv avi) and music (mp3 wma wav) so go at it!
It also has a GREAT download manager, so if you have crappy wifi or something, this allows you to pause, (TRULY pause) a download and start it up again, it also has a download accelerator that keeps your downloads going at the fastest pace possible. And for sites that only allow one download at a time, you can change the behavior of download helper to only download one file at a time, thus not timing out the download. works great for sites like megaupload, really helps in not waiting 45 seconds for every new download


For those who use FTP often, this creates a FTP window inside firefox, allowing for easy file transferring, quick and easy


don’t want to pay hosting fees? use gmail to store your pictures music or anything else. though i must WARN this is against your g-mail end user policy so your account can be terminated for doing this, so create an extra one if you’re going to do this. it pretty much turns gmail into your own file locker, and gives you that amazing 600kbs download from gmail that we all have come to love, i think gmail still has a 10mb upload cap on it so files must be under 10mb each or else you’ll have to winrar them to under 10mb each… if you don’t know how to do that, just ask

Mouse Gestures

For those who have seen me use my computer, you know that i hate clicking on things, i use hotkeys and other tricks to make my movements blazing fast. so here is one that will make yours faster. GESTURES. Instead of looking for that back button, forward, refresh, close, minimize, maxamize button, just use a gesture on your screen to do your bidding, so simple and effective you’ll never go back after installing this

ok i hope you all have enjoyed this and try at least one of the programs, they will revolutionize the way you surf the net.

lastly, learn the firefox hot keys, the important ones are bolded
