Firefox 2 Features: Addon Updates, Session Restore

July 23, 2006

I thought I would highlight a few Firefox 2.0 features which impressed me.

FF 2 extensions are now referred to as addons. The workflow when addons are updated is very well done. The browser is restarted so that the addon can be loaded, and the tabs which were loaded when you went to restart Firefox are reloaded, complete with browser history. This is accomplished through the Session Restore feature that was added to Firefox 2.

Session Restore also includes undo-close-tab functionality, which I’ll highlight in my next entry.

Mazda Zoom-Zoom Live!

July 20, 2006

Two people have invited me to go to Mazda Zoom-Zoom Live.  So, it looks like I’m going. 🙂

I went last year and had quite a bit of fun.  Except for the long lines, it was fun to drive the cars.  Now that I know stick-shift, and have a bit of autocrossing experience, it should be a good time this year.

If you haven’t been to one of these, you should go.
