Making Your Internet Browsing Safe From Prying Eyes at Work
You ever get a hankering for reading a blog or checking out some site that doesn’t look “business-y” but there’s your boss or coworker hanging around just waiting for you to slip up so they can rat you out?
I got your solution.
Recently I discovered a nifty little plugin for Firefox called Decreased Productivity.
It basically scrubs the pictures from whatever page you happen to be on and makes it text only.
I’ve tested several similar plugins but none come close. So here is the quick and dirty.
Decreased Productivity will turn this.
And it does this with a click of a button.
So lets set up Decreased Productivity plugin for Firefox so we can start goofing off at work and sticking it to the man.
First, you will need Firefox.
If you’re still using Internet Explorer, you cant be helped, go shoot yourself, you loser. IE is an ancient relic of the days of yore. No self respected net-citizen is using IE.
Don’t be a loser, go download Firefox.
Once downloaded and installed point your brand spanking, super-terrific new browser to Decreased Productivity
After you download and install Decreased Productivity, you must restart Firefox.
Once you’re up and running, go to any website that has images and check your lower right corner for two nifty little buttons.
The two buttons look like a graph with green-lined profit projections. Ha ha.
One button allows you to scrub the images for the current page (whatever page you happen to be on at the time) and the other allows you to scrub images for every tab that you might have active at the moment.
So think of one button as local (this page only) and the other as global (all pages).
What I LOVE about this plugin is that it works without reloading the page. Sweet.
What’s your favorite Firefox/Chrome add-on?
