eeePC Firefox Plugins/Addons
eeePCs come pre-installed with the wonderful Firefox browser. The 7-inch screen means that screen real-estate is at a premium so I have listed below some Firefox add-ons that I recommend.
Get rid of those pesky adverts:
Adblock Plus – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865
Adblock Updater – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1136
Shrink the menus:
Compact Menus 2 – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4550
Hide all the menus and toolbars:
Fullerscreen – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4650
Speed up that fox:
Fasterfox – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1269
Change the text size at the click of a button:
QuickZoom – https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2540
Were this a personal machine I would probably add some others, but for pupil use in the classroom, this is my list so far.
Do you have any others you would add to the list? Please let me know in the comments.
Full Screen mode (F11):
catmoran has a great page about all things xo, among them recommended Firefox settings that are likely worth a look by EeePC owners.
Thanks Ross, I’ll have a look.
Thanks fr the tips, I found speed dial and colourful tabs were also useful.
