Mozilla Firefox

I have been able to do some fancy stuff thanks to Mozilla Firefox. It's amazing how the browser and browser settings you use greatly affects your internet experience. I am currently using the "Scribefire" add-on for Mozilla Firefox to add this post to my Blog. All I do is hit the F8 key and WALLA, the bottom half of my screen shows the various options I have eg Posting to your Blog, Entries, Categories etc. with the top half showing my Blog. Once you are done you hit the "Publish" button and Bob's your auntie.
Other Add-ons that I have downloaded and installed for Firefox are Cooliris and Piclens. The effects are just awesome. I will be discussing these Add-ons in my next Post but if you ever wanted the 3D feel and Slideshow experience within your browser, these will blow you away.

I had a go at Picasa Web Albums and really enjoyed it. My boss needed a couple of photos sent for a publication but she needed to review them and select the best. I had two problems:
1. She was overseas (thousands of miles away) and
2.The photos were quite big (over 80MB)

That's when I thought of Picasa and went on an "On the Job" self-training program. I simply jumped onto the Picasa Website, , registered and before you know it, my bosss had a s heap of photos to ward through a make a slection. WHat a beauty.

Picasa really earned me some points on the job front. So you can also give it a try and see how it goes.
