I’ve been a little lax in my Technical Tuesday posts. Here’s the thing, what seems uninteresting and rote to me, just might be interesting to you. Understand that I am the woman who wants nothing more than to get into the Wolfram Alpha because I’m fascinated by Rene Descartes and his ability to “discover” the Cartesian Square.
Yes, I am that nerdy.
To my credit, I also can recognize the value of a sexy pair of heels, iron a shirt like nobody’s business and feed a family of four an organic yummy meal for $5 or less. Yes, I’m a Mommy Blogger, I cast a wide net.
I use Firefox to surf the net, I know people like Safari and IE, but I don’t. I have both installed and I check my sites from time to time using a Mac and the other browsers. I rely on Firefox, and though I know this slows the process, I rely on add ons. My connection speed may be compromised by microseconds, but I don’t have to search for programs and utilities. Long term, the adds ons save me time.
From Left to Right, top to bottom I’ll list and link to what I use.
I am forever adding applications, feeds and addons. What is pictured today, has delighted me today. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but I heartily recommend everything pictured. Especially NAG.
Firefox by Mozilla: It’s the best way to surf the web.
Reddit: It’s really great if you are into politics, especially libertarian stuff.
Facebook: If you don’t add content to facebook it’s like picking up the telephone without speaking.
My own RSS feed: I want to see what you see.
Delicious: I don’t use this as much as I should, but Delicious is a great way to keep interesting content well organized.
Compete: Yes, I want to know about your traffic, and I do know. When y’all are talking about how smart/stupid/relevant/irrelevant I am, I do check compete and respond accordingly. I’m more polite in big crowds.
What am I missing? What is your essential addon? Remember the addons do slow things down, so make sure that they’re worth it. These are the addons that I reach for several times every hour.
