REVIEW: NO SQUINT

Mozilla Firefox

Having trouble reading on the Web? Is the font extremely small? Or maybe you are having hard time reading an illegible text on a certain site?

NoSquint is here to help!

NoSquint is a popular Firefox add-on which enables you to adjust the default text zoom level, a very useful tool if you have a small display or run at a very high resolution.

This Firefox Add-on allows you to read websites easier and it offers options for adjusting text size, overall size, text and background color, to web pages viewed in Firefox.

All in all, NoSquint exists to make web browsing tolerable in Firefox. It allows users to adjust text and images zoom levels as well as color settings both globally, for every visited page and per site, for individual sites.

NoSquint is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X and Windows.

Here is what NoSquint can offer you:

  1. Eliminate the default text-only and full-page, both text and images, zoom levels for all websites.
  2. Improve and enforce your foreground and background colors.
  3. This add-on can remember the zoom levels you use, as well as the color settings per site and automatically apply them the next time you return to a certain page.

REVIEW: GOOGLEPDIA

Google

It happens to me often to spend hours searching Google and then go back again to find an answer from Wikipedia.

If you are one of those people whose search results lead mostly to a Wikipedia page, you would do well to install the Googlepedia extension for Firefox.

REVIEW: DICTIONARY TOOLTIP

Mozilla Firefox

First of all, let me define the term “tooltip” for you, so that you can learn easier about this Firefox add-on. “Toolpit” is a small rectangular pop-up window that displays a brief description of a toolbar button when a computer mouse lands on that button.
