What's the temp, Firefox?

What's the temp, Firefox?

When there's nothing else to talk about, at least you've got the weather. (Or Apple's new mouse.) Weather.com has launched a local weather extension for Firefox that ostensibly gives you one-click access to forecasts, current weather, weather alerts, and the like. I was ready to download and try it, like, instantly, but then I checked out the comments on the download page and they indicated it was bloated and full of links to Weather.com. I'll be trying out their recommendation, Forecastfox. Overall, though, I'm happy to see weather plug-ins for browsers and widgets like the suddenly free and trustworthy Konfabulator add-ons (thanks, Yahoo!). I'm still smarting from the pushy adware hangover I got from my last seemingly innocent little weather application.
