Testing.. Testing... AND a Cute Cat Vidoe!

I downloaded an 'extension' for my Firefox the other day, and I wondered how well it would work, so this is basically a test. One of the cool things about Firefox is these 'extensions'. You can add things to your Firefox browser that add functionality. BUT, you only add the things that appeal to you. This keeps the browser from becoming 'bloated' with things you don't use. Of course this is taking into consideration just loading the 'extensions' you need! These 'extensions' are also easy to remove if you decide you don't want/need/like them anymore.

The extension I downloaded is called Performance, and it is a way to blog about a webpage FROM the webpage. Basically it adds a little Icon to the bottom tray of your Firefox browser. When you see a Webpage you would like to Blog about, you click the little pad and paper icon and the bottom of your browser window becomes a blog editor! I ran across this page with a cute little video of cats and kittens doing funny things using ANOTHER extension and thought I would test this out and see how I liked it.

First, it will link directly to many different blogs. And, it does quite well linking to my Blogger Blog, but NOT to AOL... go figure! Anyway, I don't see myself using this a lot, but it quite a nice little feature. If you would like to read about/try it out, go to Performancing for Firefox.... To see what other goodies there are for Firefox just go to your toolbar and click tools, Extensions and Get more extensions.

Enjoy the video, and thank you for being part of my little 'test'!
