Filed under
Reviews

A while ago I put up this article, reviewing 5 so-called 'essential' add-ons for Firefox. To continue in the same manner in this second part, here are 5 add-ons updated for Firefox 3.5 which can prove useful. Maybe not the most popular, but they definitely deserve a try.

StumbleUpon
I think there is no social community user who didn't hear about StumbleUpon.com, or at least came across a mention of it on the web. StumbleUpon allows you to share cool links, make friends, drive traffic to your website, rate website and write reviews. It is a huge, growing community for exchanging whatever is cool and hot on the web. This add-on is a powerful extension for Firefox which will bring the entire StumbleUpon experience integrated in your browser. It provides a navigation bar just below the location bar, it allows to log in and like/dislike website. For StumbleUpon users, this is a must-have.
Install StumbleUpon from the Mozilla add-ons page

Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
