Mozilla: Tools to Help Keep Your Resolutions
Article by George Norman
On 27 Jan 2012
We all start the year with resolutions, such as “this year I’m going to more carefully watch what I eat”, or “this year I will try to be less stressed”. Most times we discard these resolutions just as easily as we made them, and that is a shame. Mozilla would like to help us keep our resolutions, and with that goal in mind, it published a list of 6 must have Firefox tools that will help you keep your resolutions.

“When the clock strikes 12:01 on January 1st, we all have grand notions of the resolutions we'd like to make for the year,” said Mozilla. “Of course, making them is the easy part; it's keeping them that's the real trick. Well, we made our own resolution this year: to keep putting you - and users everywhere - first. So we made a list of the most common resolutions people make and came up with some ways to help you stay on track for success.”

Here are the tools Mozilla says are essential for keeping your resolutions:

Resolution: This year I’m going to save money.
Tool: Grocery List Generator.


You are not going to put any money aside if you eat out 4 days a week; home-cooked meals are less expensive, so it pays to cook your own meals. You will need groceries of course, and this is where Grocery List Generator comes in. It is a helpful little tool to store your recipe-ingredients and other groceries you need regularly.

Resolution: This year I am going to travel more.
Tool: TravelScout.

What the TravelScout extension does is it automatically alerts you of potential money saving coupons and deals while you are shopping online for flights, hotels, car rentals, cruises, and more. With TravelScout’s help you can find convenient deals and finally go on the trip you’ve talked about for ages.

Resolution: This year I am going to learn a new language.
Tool: ImTranslator.


Learning a new language is not as easy as you may think it is and it may take you longer than a year to learn one. ImTranslator can help you out by translating emails and foreign language websites into your language.

Resolution: This year I am going to watch how much I eat.
Tool: Calorie Count Toolbar.


To help you kick your overeating habit, Mozilla suggests you use the Calorie Count Toolbar. This Firefox add-on lets you search for nutrition info and keep track of your daily caloric intake.

Resolution: This year I will try to be less stressed.
Solution: StrechClock.


Spending all day long in front of the computer, having to deal with time-consuming tasks, it can get pretty stressful. Doing something simple as simple as stretching is great for dealing with the stress. The StretchClock add-on reminds you to get up and do a bit of stretching.

Resolution: This year I am going to stop smoking.
Tool: Quitomzilla.


I don’t think I need to tell you why smoking is bad. What I do need to tell you is that Mozilla recommends using Quitomzilla to help kick your smoking habit.

If you’re not on Firefox, I strongly advise you to start using it. The browser is available for free, for Windows, Mac and Linux, in a multitude of languages. Get the version for your operating system and your language of choice straight from the developer here.
