My image [NO LONGER WORKS] Full Screen Plus – The fullscreen mode of Firefox can sometimes leave a lot to be desired. For example, you might want to quickly resize the window to a different size instead of first pressing F11 and then doing it. Full Screen Plus is a Firefox add-on which helps you do this and more. It basically wants to help you toggle between different screen modes.
My image PushMon – Site owners often use external site monitoring applications that periodically check whether or not their website is up. In case the site is down, a notification is sent to the site owner so he can take appropriate action immediately. While such tools are helpful for checking website availability, they cannot zoom into site processes and see whether or not individual tasks have executed successfully. For that to happen you need to place a check at the end of the process you want to monitor; if that check is not fulfilled, you will immediately know that your process did not execute like it should have. “PushMon” is a new web service that helps you do this.

My image Google+ To RSS – Both Facebook and Twitter provide ways to fetch your stream of updates via RSS into an RSS feed reader. Google+ on the other hand doesn’t have any such option. Google+ to RSS is a third-party tool that aims to fill this hole. It lets you create an RSS feed of public Google+ updates and requires your Google+ profile ID, API key and an email address.
