[ARTICLE] FoxGLove Standalone Google Apps Portal

by on Nov.24, 2008, under Technology


Crafty Firefox user Alex customized his own Firefox Portable installation to tightly integrate with Google Apps. He calls his creation “FoxGLove,” and uses it as his own Google-powered productivity portal instead of Microsoft Outlook. Along with his pick of add-ons that enhance and integrate Google Apps in Firefox, Alex tricked out this portable Firefox version with a Chrome-like theme, custom homepages (that auto-load in tabs), web site favicons, and even slapped the FoxGLove name and icon onto the whole shebang. Best part? You can download and try it out right now without disturbing your current Firefox setup.

I just download FoxGLove and I’m in love!  This is awesome and something I completely should have thought of and put together myself.

The only change I’ve made is to have the default Home Pages (yes, Home Pages: I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t know one could specify a pipe-delimited list of websites to load when Firefox opens) to include my blog, Facebook, and a couple other social sites I want to make sure I keep an eye on.
