For those of you that aren’t using Firefox yet (and what is taking you so long?), this should help you make the switch: Firefox Add-ons.

And my personal favorite, Wizz RSS
You know I love RSS (thanks, Teacher Annonymous, for reminding me how important RSS is) and now I can have it seamlessly integrated into my browsing experience. And, the best part is, since I keep trying to pretend that I have a personal life separate from my professional life, I have 2 google reader accounts – one for work, one for fun. Now that I have Wizz RSS, I can view both accounts in one window instead of having to constantly log in, out, and in again as my other self. Oh the convenience…
Of course as I was going back to get all these links for you I saw about 15 other add-ons I’m going to download as soon as I’m done here. Talk about productivity and the benefits of open source software…
