MyTimelineOnline is a unique blogging website featuring advanced controls that allows users to document their life, or the life of a loved one and to share their collective experiences within their social network and with the world.

The timeline view allows users to quickly navigate several years' worth of postings to explore what events occurred in their own life or the lives of others.

The site was developed by a single individual and originally technologies such as Telerik were considered and discarded due to the complexity and cost. As a result, the entire site was rewritten by a single part time developer in Visual WebGui which provided a significant increase in the usability of the site as well as the visual style.

1. Internet privacy
2. Think before you post
3. Varying site usage and profiles
4. Quality, not quantity

Since the big success with Wordpress related article showcasing promising and new Wordpress plugins, I decided to continue with similar list showcasing Firefox plugins. Several of these plugins are still experimental, but I tested them, checked for reviews and references and carefully picked these all extensions together.
