FoxTab – 3D effects in your web browser

FoxTabLast week I’ve found FoxTab a Firefox extension that brings 3D effects into your web browser.

It allows you to switch through opened tabs with a combination of keys (like you usually do in your operating system to switch through opened programs).

I’ve been using for a couple of days now and it’s been working great. It is really useful when you have 20 tabs opened inside a window and you want so select a specific one. It also has a lot of options and customizable environments which is a plus.

Because a picture is worth more than a thousand words here is a link to FoxTab homepage, image gallery included, and a video on YouTube which illustrates it’s usage.

And when this happens you start thinking like me, if it wouldn’t be nice if you could have one login for every service that you use, that way you could avoid memory failures.

Now we have OpenID, a free and easy way to use a single digital identity across the internet that solves all your problems.

At the moment OpenID is already being used in a couple of popular websites such as MySpace.

As a developer you can help this project to grow by having support to OpenID in your own projects, you can read about it in here.

Although the site above has a lot of informations it’s really hard to find a CMS that fits your needs, most of the people who use this kind of tools are regular users and their main goal is to install and manage the CMS with success.

That way most of the reviews that I’ve found are written without a developers perspective.

Test your web design in different browsers

How many times have you thought: “Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a tool where I could test my website layout, and see how it appears in different browsers..” ?

The tool you’ve been waiting for already exists, or at least something similar to what you (I) have expected.

It’s name is Browsershots and it’s main goal is to take screenshots of your website in different browsers running on different operating systems.
