Firefox extensions you may find handy

A click can make the difference between in-formed and dis-formed:)
The shorter the chain of clicks, the better the feature.
(BTW, here are the Firefox mouse & keyboard shortcuts (thanks Lifehaker.com))

I fancy dictionaries. I believe that if you know more words, you get access to more choices, which means better than just smarter. Oh, yeah, and probably richer:)

Having the explanations within my fast & easy grasp (not just in the should’s reach), laziness or haste don’t get involved anymore, and I naturally continue to learn bunches of words and CONCEPTS on a regular basis :)

FastDic provides a fast way to lookup words in dictionary. Hold the Alt, Ctrl or Shift keys and click any word in web page. The word is automatically selected and its meaning page is open in a new tab, new window or sidebar.

Excellent extension. My favorite features: undo close tab, drag & drop tabs, multiple rows of tabs, crash recovery.

Select your categories, push the toolbar button and navigate to interesting sites that you wouldn’t have found otherwise. You can choose to be led to sites from all the categories that you specified, or to select just one of them.
Addictive, can be used as a non-productivity buster :)

  1. Hello, I would like to use the FastDic extension that you recommend. I have downloaded the extension, but I cannot get it to work. Any suggestions?

  2. To install FastDic go to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/278/ and click the Install now button. The extension will be available after you restart Firefox. You can set its preferences from Tools > Extensions. Good luck:)
