November 11th, 2004 by Tom Chi :: see related comic

Although you probably heard from 100 other places, Firefox 1.0 is finally out. It’s like a huge fiery fox that eats our blue, blue world. If you load it up with some extensions it’s like pretty cool.

Unfortunately, RadialContext (a great extension) no longer works. It has a learning curve but once you get used to it it’s extremely quick to use, especially for the most common things (open link in new tab or window; copy URL; bla).

BTW, you’ve miscapitalized Firefox in the post title.

Whoops. Fixed the miscapitalization. Speaking of capital… I wonder if this will finally give IE a run for its money, and I also wonder whether the worm/adware writers are watching this as a new ‘market’ emerging.

Chachamu, don’t use RadialContext. Use the easyGestures, is a much newer and improved version of the same extension, and it’s now updated to Firefox 1.0.

The extentions I use on my Firefox PR1 are:
Google Toolbar - Although Moz has a built in search box, I like the image search, translate to english and search within site buttons.

Tabbrowser - this is crucial to ensure you only use one browser window unless you instigate a popup. Lots of options for tabs like undo close tab and ctrl-click to close tab that I use as well.

Sage - RSS reader

Web Developer - so crucial. Has everything from edit CSS on the spot, view stylesheet, outline elements, validate page, etc, etc.

TuringTest: I don’t know why, but I just don’t like it. I’ve tried it on small, but still… ah well.

Kevin, you’re rather behind. :P

Well I was hoping somebody would enlighten me with cooler extensions so I wouldn’t be so behind :)

A buddy of mine on the PC was asking me about a project, which I told him involved some FTP. He didn’t have a client installed, but immediately says “I wonder if there’s a Firefox extension for that.” Yep. Downloaded, restarted, and boom — he was uploading files.

Firefox is sweet.
