Over the past few months, I’ve come to appreciate the many fine features of
today, the CSS editor (sidebar panel, where code-tuning reveals its effect
immediately) and the Web Developer (good for revealing tags, splitting out
different strata/backgrounds from a page) topped my list of favorite extensions.
I’m also fond of Linky, Quicknote and Flowing Tabs–the abundance of ease they
bring into my net-tled life. But just now, I downloaded
everyone else already using this? It’s brilliant really, allowing multiple
sites and pages of notes to be tucked together into a custom folder–all at the
sidebar. It enables in-tab note-editing and HTML coding of the note (for
whatever that might be worth). And searchable. Best
extension yet for my needs. Works great for the dilemma of a bundle of
sites to return to that aren’t quite worthy of del.icio.us or other bookmarking.
Shuttling them into the scrapbook is a cinch. Granted, not as social as
del.icio.us, but sometimes the mess I collect wouldn’t be polite to share, you
Picked up on one other web development today. In
this entry, Will Richardson at Weblogg-ed pointed me to
MSN’s beta search engine with
adjustable search criteria. Just select "build a search," designate your
preferred conditions, and it will run the search. But–and here’s the
bonus punch for me–add "&format=rss" to the end of the URL generated by the
search, and you have a live RSS feed, good for keeping up with the search
criteria as a subscription in Bloglines,
for example, or your aggregator of choice. We’ll put it to the test in WRT205 in
the term ahead, I think.
