WordPress Vintage Press persona for Firefox
WordPress Inkwell persona for Firefox

Firefox Personas, which let you skin your whole browser according to your own tastes, now has WordPress ones made by Automattic itself. As of writing there are two personas: WordPress Inkwell and WordPress Vintage Press.

WordPress and Firefox are both open source projects with great communities, so it’s not surprising to see their worlds colliding every now and then. In fact if you’ll Google just a bit, Firefox add-ons for WordPress will turn up—and vice versa.

In the Philippines, the 2009 WordCamp also saw Mozilla and Automattic present both at the event and after, with Beau Lebens and Seth Bindernagel eating balut!

WordPress Helper add-on for Firefox

October 22, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Power users of WordPress and Firefox will certainly love this one: the WordPress Helper add-on for Firefox gives you quick access to WordPress documentation and to the admin panels of website profiles you have entered.

The extension eases the fast and simple access to develop-relevant pages of the WordPress Codex. So you always have all the necessary help at your fingertips. It’s also possible to search after strings of text that is currently marked. Furthermore it’s possible to easily switch to WordPress backend of current site. More than that, a small Icon indicates wether the currently displayed website makes use of WordPress.

Sometimes you have to search all over the WordPress.org Codex and even 3rd-party sites to answer that WP-related question, so this extension makes it a more pleasant experience.

And even if you’re not much of a WordPress developer, this tool will make learning about the inner workings of WordPress more efficient and convenient. Sometimes all you need is a little nudge, like this one.
