http://www.liberiangeek.net – Firefox is a wonderful browser. Even better than the most popular browser online today. I have a very high opinion of how customizable and feature-rich it is. With the millions of extensions already developed for Firefox, it is just a matter of time before you to stumble upon a really cool extension that will impress you. Mine happened today when I came across an extension called Yoono. Yoono allows you to put your favorite social networks and instant messaging profiles in one simple-to-use folder in Firefox.   Find out how cool it can really be when you’re registered on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Linked-in, FriendFeed, AIM, Google Talk, Yahoo and able to access and update all those profiles with a single post from a single folder in Firefox.   To install and try Yoono, continue reading below.   1) Open Firefox and click on Tools –> Add-ons. Then type ‘yoono’ in the search box and hit the enter key. Next select Yoono and click Add to Firefox button.       2) Next click the Install Now button and click Restart Firefox after the installation.       3) Accept the terms and begin to configure your favorite profiles online.       4) Click on each of the folder in the list to configure or login. Click Facebook to configure. When prompted, click the Connect button. Accept to allow Yoono display post, updates and friend feeds.       5) Do this for all your social network profiles. Once you’re done, click the Finish button. All your profile that are configured will have the green with the down-arrow in it. If you need to update all your profiles at once, click the all button and type your message.       6) You can also select individual profile and update instead of all of them by clicking on it.         7) You’ll get a pop-up when ever there’s an update on any of your profile.       If you love to be connected and never missing any updates, then this cool Firefox extension is your kind of tool. It will keep you always connected with friends once you’re connected to the Internet. To put everything away, just click the two left arrows and all the profiles will be hidden from view.
