Fun: With fontBomb You Can Destroy Websites

Using JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5, developer Philippe-Antoine Lehoux came up with fontBomb, a browser plug-in that will help you vent your frustrations. Did you find some article on a website that’s completely messed up and infuriates you? Do some messing up of your own by using fontBomb. Did someone leave a nasty remark to one of your comments or to one of your blog posts? Blow it up with fontBomb.

fontBomb works like this: access a website, click the fontBomb link to launch the plug-in, and start clicking away. A bomb (it’s actually just a black circle) will be placed wherever you click – as you do this a timer starts counting down. 3, 2, 1, kaboom, all the text near the bomb is blown away. Place as many bombs as you want and watch the text be thrown about.


fontBomb does not affect images though. On a website with lots of images and little to no text, fontBomb is useless. On a website with tons of text though, it is a blast. So start using fontBomb and find out just how fun it can be.

Additional information on fontBomb, including a video that shows you what can be achieved with the plug-in, is available here.

I used fontBomb with the latest Firefox edition, Firefox 14, and it ran without any problems. Rolled out to the public late this august, Firefox 14 came with a tweaked interface, an Awesome Bar that auto-completes typed URLs, plugins that can be configured to only load on click, and with a safer Google Search experience – the browser uses HTTPS by default for Google searches.

“We automatically make your Google searches secure in Firefox to protect your data from potentially prying eyes, like network administrators when you use public or shared WiFi networks,” explained Mozilla. “Google is currently the only search engine that allows Firefox to make your searches private, but we look forward to supporting additional search engines with this feature in the future.”
