Must Have Firefox Add-ons, Part 2: Facebook/MySpace Toolbars
Over the next several days I’ll be giving you my list of must have Firefox Add-ons.
Facebook Toolbar for Firefox keeps you logged in, and notifies you of any new messages, friend requests, or notifications. In addition, you can update you status or search Facebook directly from the toolbar. It also includes a combo box with quick links to the most used Facebook pages and a sidebar that lists your friends and has links to message, poke, or post to the wall of your friends. Perhaps the best feature is a ‘Share’ button that allows you to instantly post a comment as well as a link to the current page directly to your Facebook.
For more information go to the Facebook Toolbar for Firefox home page, or click here to install it now. (You will need to click ‘Allow’ when asked in order to give the site permission to install the software.)
Like the Facebook Toolbar, Unofficial MySpace Toolbar keeps you logged in, and notifies you of any new MySpace activity. In addition, it includes a link to a style editor for customizing your profile and a button to quickly add a blog entry.
There are other MySpace toolbars out there, but in my experience the others are limited and ad-laden.
