Password Tricks

I’ve been getting a number of emails lately about my old Password Manager Tricks page, which was easy to find on my old domain (which squatters now grabbed) and I keep forgetting to re-link it. Well, here it is, again.

I just had to share this one.

More Firefox ideas…

I started with this idea a couple weeks ago. Well, I decided, why not blog a few more. Ideas are good to spread around, as you have a better chance to make it happen.

First up is some New Tab issues. Linux folks have -remote openURL([url], new-tab) but those of us on Win32 have no external options for specifying a new tab or window, only one-size-fits-all preference settings. I’m so used to middle-clicking links in Mailnews that I don’t think I can bear going back.

And the ability to specify a new tab using the target= attribute on links would be nice too, but that ship has sailed.

Another tab thing would be tab-reordering built in. Asa blogged about an extension called MiniT+indicator, but a simple featureset like this should be built into Firefox.

Ever use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or Acrobat Reader? I love how holding the spacebar lets your grab and move the document around freely. I would absolutely adore an extenstion that added this feature. And not just for pages; for images that are larger than the viewport it would rock too (no, I hate image auto-resizing so don’t even speak of it). Anything with a scrollbar.

I’m sure I’ll think of more later on, or rather, remember more later on. 🙂
