Proxy Switch using Toolbar Buttons extension on Firefox 3

I have a proxy setting at office and connect to internet directly from my house. That requires me to every go into a deep-hidden option to switch from "Direct Connection" to "Manual Proxy" every day twice... once at office once at home....

I never liked that. Now that I recently started using Firefox 3, I thought of moving to something more automatic.... so searched for all the available extensions... foxy-proxy, Proxy-switch etc. While the former is available, its too complicated for the simple use, and Proxy-switch is not available on Firefox 3 yet...

So i turned to another interesting option instead... its Toolbar Buttons

A button pack for Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird

It has some really interesting other options, but what i liked the most was the toggel for Proxy on-off... really cool one and on my tool bar with just one click function... i am loving it.

Google Map predicts Traffic Condition.

Google Maps can now predict traffic information
for any day of the week and time of the day, based on past conditions.
By default, if you click on the Traffic button in a supported area from
the US, Google Maps shows real-time traffic information. "Comprehensive
traffic data is available in over 30 major US metropolitan areas
(including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and others), with partial
coverage available in many more," according to Google Maps help center. There's also a traffic layer in Google Earth and Google Maps Mobile, but these applications don't include yet traffic prediction.

Map Jack... better way to view the street

MapJack is an effort similar to Google's Street View
to capture street-level imagery. The site only has imagery from San
Francisco, Sausalito (US) and Chiang Mai (Thailand), but San
Francisco's images are the most impressive. They look so good that you
almost think you're there.

When i say its clear, this is what i really mean :)
