So there’s this pretty nice application for firefox called Performancing that lets you blog directly from Firefox. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’ve always bloged directly from Firefox. The only difference is that with Performancing you get a nice little horizontal side bar to do it in. The extensions you can make in Firefox are really nice. Although I’m not normally a fan of toolbars the Google toolbar is very useful. The things I use the most are the spell checker and the page translater. It also has a function that translates words from English to to other languages when you hover your mouse over them. I wish I could get that functionality for Japanese to English.
