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 Twitter.com 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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
