What firefox extensions are you using?
I’ve been using Scrapbook to clip things of interest from websites.
I’ve also just discovered Aggreg8, a RSS feed reader for firefox . Easy to use though I had to bookmark the launch page : chrome://aggreg8/content/aggreg8.xul.
Even better is FireFTP, yup, a FTP program on your browser. Almost like using SmartFTP but I don’t have to keep refreshing everytime I update a file.
