Foxden – your life on one page

Posted in Software at 01:21 by graham

Update (Nov 2010): I have not worked on Foxden for over a year. I do not recommend you use it.

Foxden is a Firefox extension that allows you to tile all the web applications you use on one page. Imagine being able to see your email, your calendar, your bug tracker, feeds, twitter, whatever you use, on one page. Take a look at my setup:

As you can see, I have (counter clockwise from top left) my email, calendar, feed reader, todo list and a local text file for taking notes.

It’s free, should work wherever Firefox 3 works, and it could be yours right now.

    Is it possible to have Foxden display within a tab of Firefox? I don’t like having multiple instances of Firefox running.

    Awesome work! I love it. I’m finding many uses for Foxden. Thanks for developing it.

    By the way, what is two + three ? Well if you’re reading this then you’ll know that I figured it out. ;)

    Hi Graham,

    I liked the look of Foxden so I downloaded the extension however I am struggling with your instructions to get set up. the instructions say I need to click the preferences menu which I can find via the help option and maybe I am blind but I cannot see and help or preference menu/button etc.

    I really want to give Foxden a try, it looks like something I’d find most useful hope you can advise ASAP.

    [Graham] In Firefox, select the Tools menu, then Foxden, and that should open the window you need.

    Hey there, I just installed this addon and while setting it up, decided to untick the maximize button so that I could resize it. It was taking up too much space but when I did it then became a small window that can’t be resized at all. The problem is that the only thing showing is the preferences button and when clicked doesn’t bring up the window, thus, I am stuck without being able to use it at all.

    I’ve tried removing and then installing it again but it seems the settings aren’t being removed.

    Very cool addon though Graham, keep it up this is definitely something that would be a great help on a daily basis.

    [Graham] You should still be able to resize the window by gripping the sides, like normal. It’s just a smaller target :-) Otherwise you can reset the Maximize preference: http://groups.google.com/group/foxden-users/browse_thread/thread/c716d4009c6832a2 Note that this should be solved in v0.2, available now.
