  1. Add post-it notes to your mails in Thunderbird with the XNote++ extension Do you have the habit of saving draft mails to serve as reminders? Many people do that, and sometimes, these are related to messages that you may have received or sent earlier. For example, a reminder about responding to a business query, a support request, an upcoming appointment, communication with your colleagues, etc. What if instead of saving drafts, you could save a post-it note to your mails? That would be a better reminder, wouldn't it? That's what XNote++ does. Th
  2. Read pages in a distraction-free mode, print or save them with the Reader View extension for Firefox and Chrome Many modern browsers have a feature called reader view, that presents web pages in a distraction-free layout. So, if a page has a cluttered sidebar, annoying ads, or a lot of elements which take the focus away from the article, you can enable reader view to get a better experience. Now, the thing about this feature is that it's pretty bare bones. You either use it or you don't, there are just a couple of extra options like changing the font size o
  3. The Great Suspender extension has been removed from Chrome Web Store for containing malware This afternoon, Google has delisted the popular extension The Great Suspender for containing malware and is proactively disabling the extension for those who have it. The Great Suspender is — or perhaps was — an extension that forced your excess tabs to sleep, helping to keep Chrome from using too much RAM and other resources. Last year, as explained in-depth by TheMageKing, the development of The Great Suspender changed hands and was subsequently sold to an unknown
  4. Write notes in a new tab and save them locally with the TextNotes extension for Firefox Found something interesting and want to save it for future reference? You could save the web page, or copy the content and save it in Notepad, or a cloud-based note taking service. But if you would like to save the note directly in Firefox, you'll probably like the TextNotes extension. Before you get your hopes up and think this is an add-on that saves notes to specific tabs, let me tell you that it doesn't. Click on the extension's button on the toolbar and
  5. Search and Manage tabs from multiple windows with ease using Tab Manager V2 for Firefox and Chrome Do you have too many tabs open in your browser? Sometimes it can get really difficult to locate the tab you need, and the more tabs you have, the worse it becomes. Before you discard all the tabs, give Tab Manager V2 a try. It is an extension for Firefox and Chrome that lets you search and manage tabs easily from a pop-up UI, and alternatively from a separate tab of its own. Tip: check out my reviews of Tab Manager Plus, Search all Tabs, and
  6. easyGestures N is a user-friendly, mouse gesture navigation extension for Firefox Gesturefy and FoxyGestures are incredible add-ons which allow you to control your browser with the mouse. The gestures do take some time to get used to; if you want something simpler, you can't go wrong with easyGestures N. It is fork of an old add-on called Easy Gestures, with a similar interface. But the features are quite different in the new extension. EasyGestures N requires three permissions by default, and the official page on
  7. Google Images Restored restores the classic Google Images web interface Google Images Restored is an extension for Chromium-based and Firefox-based web browsers that restores the classic Google Images web interface and its functionality. Google started to tinker with the interface on Google Images in 2018 when it removed the "view image" button from the site. The feature allowed users to view the selected image in a new tab in the browser. Workarounds were discovered, but many users still missed the simplicity of the button. Search engines such as Startpage continue to
  8. Quick Commands is a Firefox extension that works like Vivaldi's shortcuts Vivaldi users may be familiar with a feature called Quick Commands. These are keyboard shortcuts which allow you to do various things quickly like switching tabs, finding a specific tab, do an online search, and more. If you want a similar set of controls in Firefox, you can get it with the help of the Quick Commands extension. The name alone should tell you that the add-on is inspired by Vivaldi's built-in option. Here's how to use it. Install the add-on and press the hotkey
  9. Save webpages as an EPUB file with the Save as eBook extension for Firefox and Chrome Add-ons like SingleFile, Save Page WE and tools like wkhtmltopdf are handy when you want to save a web page for offline reading. You can of course use Microsoft's PDF Printer option to download pages as ebooks. Save as eBook works similarly, it is a Firefox and Chrome extension that can save web pages in the EPUB format. You could use it to save a Wikipedia page for reference, or tutorials, recipes, reference pages, etc. Let's see how it works. Visit a page tha
  10. Manage your web shortcuts from a dual-pane interface with the Bookmarks Commander extension for Firefox and Chrome If you're a regular reader, you may know I'm a fan of dual-pane file managers. They're very convenient when you want to multitask or organize your folders and files. Well, if you have ever wanted to manage your browser bookmarks like that, your wish has been granted. Bookmarks Commander is an extension for Firefox and Chrome that has a dual-pane interface. The developer's page indicates that the addon was inspired by Norton Commander and Total
  11. Save the title and URL of your tabs in different formats with the CopyTabTitleUrl extension for Firefox and Chrome Maybe you want to save your session, or send the links to a friend, or share a page on social networks. Copying and pasting a link is ok if the service has web previews to display what the URL is for. But if it doesn't support it, you may want to share some information about the page. Including the title of the page should give the recipient an idea what the link is about. But then, you will need to copy 2 things. This isn't a prob
  12. Windows Taskbar Unread Badge displays a dynamic icon to indicate the total number of unread mails in Thunderbird It's been a while since I wrote about Thunderbird extensions. Here's one that I've been using to ensure I don't miss new mails that land in my inbox. The add-on is called Windows Taskbar Unread Badge. That's quite a mouthful, but it also explains its functionality. The extension places a dynamic badge on Thunderbird's icon on the Taskbar. The badge indicates the number of mails that you've not read yet. That's a neat thing to have, a
  13. Reduce the size of email headers in Thunderbird with Compact Headers Compact Headers is a long-standing extension for the open source Thunderbird email client that gives users options to reduce the size of email headers significantly, up to a single line. One of the devices that I use Thunderbird on is a Surface Go device; it has a rather small screen and it is quite difficult to read emails in Thunderbird because of the huge header that the client displays in the reading pane. While I could open emails individually to get more space, I tend to read
  14. Block specific websites in Google Search and other search engines with the uBlacklist extension for Firefox and Chrome One of the biggest problems with search engines is their accuracy. Google is good for the most part, but sometimes you may find that the results are irrelevant, clickbait, and generally not what you were looking for. There are a few ways to tailor the result settings to your needs. Maybe you dislike a website for some reason, or Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter results, and you don't want these to appear on the results page. UBlacklist is a Firefox
  15. AutoPause for Firefox pauses all non-active tab audio Most web browsers do not limit media playback to the active tab. In other words, if multiple audio sources are loaded at the same time, you will get audio from all of these; this is often not desired, especially if a background site may play video ads with sounds or something similar while you try to listen to Internet radio, watch a video, or play a game with audio in the active tab. AutoPause is a brand new extension for the Firefox web browser that serves only one purpose: to pause any audio source in the browser
  16. Podstation is a Chrome extension that lets you listen to podcasts and download episodes I'm a huge fan of radio, and also like listening to talk shows and podcasts. It's always interesting to listen to other people's opinions about my favorite topics. There are many podcast apps on mobile devices, I use the open source app, AntennaPod. On PC, you can use something like gPodder or even use MusicBee. Podstation for Chrome If you want to listen to podcasts in your browser, Podstation is a Chrome extension that works flawlessly.
  17. Containers Helper improves the usability of Firefox's Containers feature Containers is probably one of the most underappreciated features of the Firefox web browser. Mozilla launched the feature as a TestPilot experiment back in 2017 before it integrated the functionality natively in the Firefox web browser and releasing the Multi-Account Containers extension. Containers offer a way to separate browsing data, and that leads to several useful applications such as the ability to sign-in to services multiple times, reducing online tracking, or clearing the content o
  18. Find the tab you're looking for instantly with the Search All Tabs extension for Firefox and Chrome Browsing sessions can quickly get cluttered, which makes it difficult to find what you're looking for. I use OneTab to clean up my current session and save the list. I then analyze it to restore important tabs. It's not the most efficient way, because of the manual effort involved, not to mention the time it takes to check the tabs. Search All Tabs Search All Tabs is an extension for Firefox and Chrome that helps you find the t
  19. To Google Translate update removes the extension's toolbar button and pop-up panel from Firefox A couple of years ago, I began using a Google Translate extension called S3 Translator. It was removed from the add-ons repository multiple times though it was restored after further reviews. I ditched it in favor of an open source extension called To Google Translate, and have been a happy user ever since. You can read my review of the add-on, if you haven't done so already. The main feature of the extension, at least for me, is the tool
  20. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration on Wednesday granted ByteDance a new seven-day extension of an order directing the Chinese company to sell its TikTok short video-sharing app, according to a court filing. The administration previously had granted ByteDance a 15-day extension of the order issued in August, which was set to expire Friday. President Donald Trump on Aug. 14 had directed ByteDance to divest the app within 90 days. The new deadline is Dec. 4, TikTok said in the filing. Under pressure from the U.S. government, ByteDance has been in
  21. Get the definition of a selected word in a floating pop-up with the Dictionaries extension for Firefox and Chrome What you do when you come across a new word? You may look it up to find out about its meaning. There are many add-ons that help simplify the task like the Dictionaries extension for Firefox and Chrome It could use a better name for sure, but its features more than make up for it. Once you have it installed, visit a webpage and double-click on a word that you want the definition of, and presto, a floatin
  22. Add a visual page loading indicator to Firefox with the Load Progress Bar extension Both Firefox and Chrome use the favicon on the tab bar to indicate that a webpage is loading. While Chrome has a spinning wheel icon, Firefox's indicator is sort of a dot that bounces left and right. But, it doesn't actually show you whether the site has loaded partially, for instance when the server is slow. In case of issues, you just have to wait and see if the page is ready, or if the browser failed to access the site. If you want a slightly better status indicator
  23. Easy Container shortcuts is an extension that enables additional hotkeys for Firefox containers The Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension can give you more control over your privacy. If you aren't already using it, you should give it a try as it separates data to limit tracking, provide better manageability, and advanced functionality such as the ability to sign-in to the same service multiple times using a single browser window. Many add-ons support containers, and there are a few that can improve the experience. When you ente
  24. Chrome extension Tabbs improves Tab Search and Management Tabbs is a relatively new browser extension for the Google Chrome web browser that improves tab management in several significant ways. It adds search and management options to browser tabs to improve Chrome's usability for users who have lots of tabs open all the time. Google is currently testing a Tab Search feature in Chrome as well, and you may wonder how Tabbs differs from Google's implementation. Google's implementation is experimental at this point in time, and that means that there is a chance that it wi
  25. SelectionSK is a context menu extension for Firefox and Chrome that adds translate, dictionary, custom search, copy urls, and other options Find yourself constantly switching to different websites to translate text, look up dictionary definitions, and other things? SelectionSK is a context menu extension for Firefox and Chrome that adds these options and more. Select some text using the mouse, and a pop-up menu will appear. This is the add-on's interface.
