A Firefox plugin that ring-fences all Facebook activity to the facebook.com domain. Once you close that tab, this extension takes care of garbage collection, ensuring that Facebook tracking scripts don’t leak into any other browsing activities.

That’s a harsh headline but it is unfortunately deserved. We should indeed hold Mozilla to a higher standard.

I’ve gotten a little tired of showing up to a Medium-powered site on a non-medium.com domain and getting badgered to Sign Up! or Get Updates! when I’m already a Medium user.
A Chrome extension to Make Medium Readable Again by:
- Keeping the top navigation bar from sticking around
- Hiding the bottom “Get Updates” bar completely
- (Optionally) hiding the clap / share bar
- (Optionally) loading all post images up front, instead of lazy loading as you scroll
Shame there isn’t a mobile version to get rid of the insulting install-our-app permabutton.

Best. Chrome extension. EVER!
Paul’s Chrome extension replaces every instance of “the cloud” with “the moon” (something I do in my head anyway).
It’s forked from an extension that replaces every instance of “the cloud” with “the clown.”
Oh, and Ben has written a version for Safari …forked from code that converts every instance of “the cloud” to “my butt.”

I’ll be adding a link to this from the footer of Huffduffer for Chrome users.

Plug in and huffduff
Beer o’clock in Brighton begins shortly after work ends on a Friday evening. That’s when the geeks of Brighton unshackle themselves from their keyboards and monitors to congregate in a pub. If the weather is good, it’ll be a sunny pub. Last friday the Clearlefties descended on The Eagle where we were joined by Ribotians and others.
Glenn showed up and we proceeded to geek out on our usual favourite topics; microformats and data portability. He had spent the day hacking on a Firefox plug-in. If you haven’t tried his Identify extension, do yourself a favour and install it—it’s quite astounding.
I mentioned that I had tried to hack together my own Firefox extension for Huffduffer but was thwarted by my lack of skill in reverse-engineering and penetrating the documentation. I wanted to provide a fairly simple behaviour: right-click on a link to an audio file and select an option to huffduff it.
Two days later I got an email from Glenn with a file attached …a Firefox extension he built for huffduffing. Fantastic!
Anyway, grab the Huffduffer Firefox plug-in for yourself and give it a whirl.
Next time it’s beer o’clock in Brighton, I owe Glenn a beer.

Okay, I know I said "holy freakin' crap!" the last time I linked to one of Glenn's Social Graph API experiments but now he's gone and created a Firefox plug-in: press alt-i and you can see the social graph for anyone's site. Holy freakin' crap!

Apple admit that they totally screwed up the roll-out of MobileMe and offer a 30 day extension for free. Now if only it were as easy to make up for the craptastic markup underlying the web-based MobileMe apps.

Oh yes! A plugin for Safari that will detect, display and export hCard and hCalendar data. Caveat: it only works on Leopard so, because I haven't upgraded yet, I haven't had a chance to testdrive this yet myself.
