Get the Date and Time in the Status Bar

Posted: 09 Dec 2009 04:33 AM PST

1244802256 Telling you what time it is seems like a trivial task for any modern browser, however many leave the job to your operating system.

However, if you have hidden your clocks and need a way to tell what time it is from Firefox, Statusbar Date is the perfect add-on for the job.

This extension uses format specifiers to allow you to display the date/time in your status bar however you want. You can even mix in regular text with your desired format.  Some of the other features are:

  • Displays the current date/time in the status bar.
  • Left clicking on Statusbar Date toggles it to contract, only showing the icon in the status bar. Clicking on it again will cause it to expand once again.
  • Right clicking on Statusbar Date opens the Options dialog.
  • Middle clicking on Statusbar Date toggles parts of the format that are enclosed by ( ) to contract/expand.

You can download the Statusbar Date plugin from the Firefox Add-ons web site.

1-Click YouTube Video Downloader

Better YouTube Downloader

Now, I know what you are going to tell me before you even say it.

"Mitch, there are already a million and one video downloaders out there, why review another one?"

Number one, you are right – there are way too many.  So what makes the 1-Click YouTube Video Download any different?  It cuts out the useless junk, and gets right to the meat and potatoes.

Other plugins make you pass through one place, that goes to another, and then finally after you turn in a circle three times you might have the video.  This add-on doesn't make you do that dance.  Instead, it adds download links under the videos on YouTube.

Easy Video Downloading from YouTube

All you do is select if you want to download the .flv version, the .mp4 version, or the HD version (if available).  Click the link, the download starts and you are done.

You can pick up the 1-Click YouTube Video Download add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons web site.
