I had been hearing the term “PFF” for quite some time around the blogosphere, but had failed to understand just what it was. Even google searches turned out irrelevant results, such as the “PFF Bank & Trust”, “The Progress & Freedom Foundation”, blah blah.
On the other hand, I had discovered and been using this neat Firefox extension (called “Performancing” for a few days, and had planned to introduce it through my blog today. Now, I’m doing some background research into this tool, and it suddenly hits me:
PFF = Performancing for Firefox
“Well, duh”, you may say, but it had been totally eluding me. What can I say? I’m slow like this sometimes
Anyway, here’s a description for PFF from the official “about” page:
Performancing for Firefox is a full featured blog editor that sits right within Firefox. Just hit F8 or click the little pencil icon at the bottom right to bring up the blog editor and easily post to your WordPress, MovableType or Blogger blogs.
Performancing for Firefox is for Firefox 1.5 and above only. We’ve made use of a number of cool new features within Firefox 1.5, so you’ll need that version of Firefox to try it.
I really like this tool. I had been looking all around for a “simple, elegant, no-nonsense blog posting application that just does it’s job” – and I’ve found it. I usually have Firefox running in the background for the whole time I’m online. Now, whenever I feel like blogging something, I can simply hit a button in Firefox and start writing away!
If you’re a blogger and never heard of PFF before (or never tried it out), trust me and give it just 10 minutes of your time – I’m pretty sure you’ll end up liking it!
