The internet is chock-full of useful things, but here are a few random favorites that make my daily internet use more pleasant:
- Meebo – Firefox Add-on: All your IM accounts in one place.
- Feed Sidebar – Firefox Add-on: Displays items from your Live Bookmarks in a sidebar.
- Colorful Tabs – Firefox Add-on: Colors every tab and makes them easy to to distinguish (makes it pretty, too.)
- Read It Later – Firefox Add-on: Save web pages to read later without cluttering your Bookmarks Menu.
- GoodSearch– Give to your charity of choice just by searching the internet.
- The Hunger Site – Your clicks help others.
- Smart Bookmarks Bar – Firefox Add-on: Turns your bookmarks bar into a tidy little row of icons so there’s room for more.
- Addblock Plus – Firefox Add-on: Get rid of all those annoying ads and banners.
- WordPress.com – I tried Blogger but I love my WordPress.
- Lolcats– I start my day with coffee and a laugh
- Flickr-Another great resource of photos and inspiration. You can do an advanced search and find content free to use with a Creative Commons license.
- Photobucket– The photo editor is so handy.
What are some of your favorite useful internet things?

Oh no. I will not be adding add-ons! (I must write that 100 times!)
Seriously, meebo?? hmmm
Man, some of these are just beyond me. LOL.
I love WordPress! Great list!
LOL. I only go with stuff that makes my life easier. These are all easy to add/use. Nothing scary in any of them.
I’ve never heard of some of those! LOL! I’ll have to check them out!
My TT is at http://paigetylertheauthor.blogspot.com/
I haven’t heard of most of those. I use Photobucket like crazy. Have for years. 🙂 Happy Thursday!
If it weren’t for WordPress there’s no way I could have built or rebuilt my site so quickly.
I’m a twitter fan, so I love my tweetdeck. Also, Wikipedia, google, and the sheer volume of information make me happy.
#7 and #8 sound handy. I just installed (last night, in fact) the twitterfox thing. So far it’s kind of cool. I may have to look into those others, though!
I love Google Reader. Makes keeping on top of favorite blogs soooo much easier!
I love WordPress. I haven’t heard of most of the others. I’ll have to check them out.
I have firefox too, but some of those I have never heard of.
Good informative TT.
Some of these are beyond me… but a bunch I use and love!
