>Firefox find-on-page highlighting like Safari 3

>Although I’m not too enthusiastic about the new Apple Safari 3 beta, one simple feature I do appreciate a lot is the way it highlights find-on-page results. It really makes day-to-day browsing more productive.

I wonder if there is any Firefox 2.0 plugin that can do something similar. So far I haven’t been able to find anything.

 

>GrApple and Hyperwords

>Some more hints for Mac OS X users:

  • Use the GrApple Eos Pro theme in Firefox to make Firefox look like a decent OS X citizen.
  • And install Hyperwords for nifty inline hyper-referencing of (groups of) words; see the demo.

GrApple looks fantastic. The only thing I noticed is that the Tag button (part of the del.icio.us extension) looks quite vague. That’s probably because the icons are now a log smaller than they used to be. Otherwise it looks great.

>Some more Mac apps for regular users

>Here’s a list of a few more of my favourite Mac OS X apps for regular users (not developers or artists and such):

  • QuickSilver (Ctrl-Space), a kind over ├╝ber-Spotlight – for quickly starting programs and much much more…
  • Growl, for more notifications than you can possibly think of; mainly for incoming e-mail.
  • Tomato Torrent, just in case you happen to need to download via Bittorrent.
  • StuffIt Expander 11, for accessing different kinds of archives (e.g. .zip, .sit, etc.)
