What it does: Allows you to bookmark this to del.icio.us
Why itâ€™s good for college: As described in my last post, del.icio.us can help you organize your notes and research pages.
Extension: Foxy Tunes
Why itâ€™s good for college: Allows you to control your music player through Firefox. It helps save time switching between web browsing and clicking on the next song you want to play. Music + productivity.
Extension: Gmail uploader
Why itâ€™s good for college: Uses your Gmail account as a server. Good for storing papers and assignments instead of wasting time emailing them to yourself.
Extension: Quick note
Why itâ€™s good for college: It allows you to copy and paste text in Firefox instead of opening a word processor. It also features multiple tabs so you can “take notes” for multiple courses all while browsing.
Extension: mySpace bar
Why itâ€™s good for college: I’m not a mySpace guy, but a lot of college students swear by it. This bar basically puts the site navigation to mySpace in Firefox.
Extension: Dictionary Tooltip
Why itâ€™s good for college: It defines any word you double click on. Good when reading transcripts of documents written by long and verbose writers. One warning: the definition always turns up when you double click and can get annoying when copying and pasting single words.
Extension: Forecast Fox
Why itâ€™s good for college: Call me pessimistic but I doubt very many college kids flip on The Today Show for the weather in the morning. Roll out of bed fire up your browser (something most of us do anyway) and get the forecast.
Extension: Gmail notifier
Why itâ€™s good for college: I live and die by this extension. It sits in the very corner of your browser and notifies you when you have been sent an email. Great for those last minute cancellation emails by professors. It also helps you wow people with your fast response times and the quicker you can get back to them, the quicker they can get back to you. Efficient.
