The FirePHP extension uses the Firebug extension as its base and adds a new panel called "FirePHP" to it. The primary motivations for extending Firebug instead of publishing an independent extension without the requirement of needing Firebug installed are:
This tutorial focuses on how FirePHP is able to extend Firebug in an effort to help you make your own additions to Firebug.
- Firebug provides 95% of all functionality required to track and manage browser requests and contexts as needed by FirePHP
- Firebug provides a large base of library functions
- The user interface of Firebug is already used by many developers and FirePHP will attempt to stay as consistent with the existing UI as possible to minimize the adoption and learning curves of FirePHP
Scrapbook saves bits and pieces of the Web to your local disk, lets you add comments and annotations, arrange the content in folders, and makes it all fully searchable without ever leaving your browser. A must-have tool for Internet researchers, students, writers and voracious bookmarkers, Scrapbook could change how you save and search bookmarks and Web content forever. Seeing is believing with this nifty extension, so I've put together a 4 minute screencast demonstrating Scrapbook in action. This short video describes the basic functionality of the extension, and will get you started down the road to building your own offline Web scrapbook. Capture all tabs Save every web page you've got open in one browser window, perfect for when your latest Google session led to a bevy of tabs you want to check out offline, annotate and search later. In-depth capture Capture links out from a web page up to four levels deep. Save an entire web site to your scrapbook. Filter out URLs (like ads, for instance) by domain, directory or string. Links between the captured pages are preserved for offline surfing, and a
site map documentis automatically generated for a bird's eye view of the site structure. Download linked files Select a section of a web page that lists music tracks, for instance, and tell Scrapbook to download all the .MP3 files on the page only, and ignore all the .WAVs. Sticky notes Add a floating or position fixed sticky note directly on a captured page, referring to particular elements of that page. Inline comments Select a line of text and add an inline comment that appears as a tooltip annotation when you mouse over that text. Scrapbook's a powerful extension that turns Firefox into a feature-ful notes manager. For an in-depth look at all of its features, check out Andrew Giles-Peters Scrapbook tutorial (PDF).
Scrapbook saves blurbs from Web pages to your hard drive along with the URL of the originating Web site. It allows you to organize and categorize your blurbs in a format similar to your bookmarks so that when it comes to creating a bibliography or works cited, you won’t waste any time
I've been using slogger since May 2005 and find it excellent. I've not used Scrapbook but I did read the 50 page manual that is available for it. Scrapbook appears to be much more of an all-in-one tool than slogger -- the sort of thing a Windows user would expect. slogger is a Unix-philosophy tool: do one thing, do it well, and do it in a way that allows it to be strung together with other such tools. In my case, slogger saves web pages directly to a subdirectory of the htdocs directory used by Apache on my intranet. These pages are then indexed, along with all the other web pages there, by swish. But slogger is very versatile and could be used in lots of other ways. The documentation available for slogger is pretty terse.
http://tiddlysnip.com/#About TiddlySnip is a Firefox extension that lets you use your TiddlyWiki as a scrapbook! Simply select text, right click and choose 'TiddlySnip selection'. Next time you open your TiddlyWiki file, your snippets will be there, already tagged and organised.
I find that the download manager that comes with Firefox to be very intrusive. Download manager tucks your download progress bars into the generally unused status bar of Firefox. This lets you download care-free without the Firefox Download Manager popping up and interrupting you.
As you glide the mouse over the page, you will see a red rectangle framing each element under the cursor. You will also see a little yellow caption showing the HTML element type and its class or id if they exist. The Keystrokes You can then press certain keys on the keyboard (as indicated below) to do various things, such as delete the selected element from the page, isolate the element, or move the selection rectangle outward to the containing element.
- Clean up unwanted banners and surrounding "fluff," especially prior to printing a page
- See how the page is created, block by block
- View the source code of one or more elements
Can use as an alternative to "View selection source".
CLEO is a Firefox extension that works with FEBE to package any number of extensions/themes into a single, installable .xpi file. Why? Consider this: I, as an extension developer, have several different Firefox profiles. Whenever I start a new extension, I create a new profile for testing, debugging, etc. In this profile, I like to have a dozen or so developer related extensions installed. With CLEO, I can packaged all these extensions together into a single, installable xpi. You may have a list of your favorite extensions/themes that you would like to share with others. With CLEO, you can gather them all together into a single file (called, perhaps, "My favorite extensions.xpi") and post them on a webpage. Others can install the whole batch with a just a couple of clicks! In fact, if you have assembled a Cleopack you would like to share, see the Cleopack Blog.
"A lot of forums and boards provide very small textareas for new postings. If you type a longer posting, you have to scroll up and down, to read, what you have written and to proceed. This situation is annoying. Now here is my solution: Resizeable Textarea extension."
