FireStatus is a new Firefox 3 extension that allows you easily send status updates to your Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed accounts right from your Firefox browser status bar. Although now it can only send updates to the above 3 services, more services will be added to their roster in the future.
Once you have downloaded and installed the browser addon you can add your username and password for the services and get started. When you’re all set you will be able to post links and notes to your profiles only with a couple of clicks without the need to navigate from the current page.
Additionally to updating your online profiles FireStatus also displays instant popup notifications with updates from these services, making it easier for you to keep up with them all at once.
