Have you ever wanted to find that one site or another, only to realize that the link is stored on your other computer? Foxmarks, currently for Firefox and IE, makes it easy to syncronize your bookmarks. If you save a couple bookmarks on Computer A, then save a couple on Computer B later, Computer A and B will both have the same bookmarks. Foxmarks works in the background, going as unnoticed as possible.
Maybe you only want to have some of your bookmarks on your work or school computer, while keeping others saved only on your home computer. With Foxmarks, you can create profiles that will only have certain bookmarks saved on them. One of the recommendations of the profiles system is keeping a shortlist of bookmarks for your phone/PDA, and there are plenty of other uses, too.
Are you ready to download Foxmarks yet? Here are some download links:
Web developers know that finding exact measurements of anything that isn’t an image can be a pain. MeasureIt attempts to make life easier by putting a button in the bottom-left corner of Firefox’s window. Clicking on the button will put a semi-transparent white layer over the webpage (I don’t know why honestly), and lets you click and drag a portion of the screen to see its exact measurements. The addon isn’t perfect though, as you can’t select particular elements of a page like Colorzilla (an excellent color picker for Firefox) does.
All-in-all, MeasureIt gets the job done quick and pretty easily, so head over the the MeasureIt download page. At the time of this writing it works for any edition of Firefox from 1.0 to 3.0.
