Post Twitter updates from the Firefox address bar

Ingenious Firefox plug-in TwitterBar makes tweeting as easy as typing in the address bar and clicking a button.

Do you still go to every time you want to tweet something? That, my friends, is one colossal waste of time (not to mention a hassle).

If you're a Firefox user, you can tweet right from your browser's address bar. All you need is the fiendishly clever TwitterBar add-on.

What's so fiendish about it? TwitterBar makes tweeting so easy, you'll probably end up doing a lot more of it--and, if I may gently remind you, no one cares what you had for breakfast today. Not even your mom.

Anyway, TwitterBar adds a "tweet" icon to the tail end of the Firefox address bar. Just type your update, then click the icon--or mouse over it to see how many characters you have left. (As with all tweets, you're limited to 140.)

If all you want to do is tweet the address of the site you're viewing, there's no typing required--just click the TwitterBar icon. Like I said: clever!

If there's a faster way to tweet, I haven't found it.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
