Firefox 2.0 Boss Key extension – Productivity and Networking Information Component

Posted in Firefox and Greasemonkey, Technology, Workhacks and High Tech Life by engtech on November 10, 2006

This is a rather self-explanatory Firefox extension for the workplace.

PaNIC is set to be activated by the Alt key and the tick ` symbol up there by the 1 on your keyboard.

Press those two buttons at the same time, and all of your tabs in Firefox will get killed instantly, and replaced with a Google search for “increasing workplace productivity”.

You can edit the hot keys and web page address via the extension’s preferences menu.

NOTE: If you are using StumbleUpon (which I highly recommend), you’ll have to change the keystroke. StumbleUpon uses Alt-` as a hot key for the Stumble! button.

Firefox >> Tools >> Add-ons >> Productivity and Networking Information Component >> Options

I recommend changing the URL to a work-related search and the modifier to Ctrl-`. You could even change the URL to go to your Intranet homepage, specific documentation, etc.
