Be Lazy… I Mean Effective

Finding shortcuts in life makes you a more effective worker, I mean everyone wants to be more productive, right? Even if that means shaving off a few seconds each day that would have been used on a task means everything- those seconds add up!

Copy as HTML Link Add-On

Today, we share with you a Firefox add-on called “Copy as HTML Link” that will allow you to highlight text on a page and with a simple right click, the selected text will be copied into your clipboard with full html link coding to the site it was taken from.

In other words, I highlight the words, “we share with you a Firefox add-on” above, right click and tell it to Copy as HTML Link and it and goes to my clipboard with the selected words as a link back to this article. This is a huge time saver, especially those of us writing exclusively in the HTML editor.

    Short, sweet, and too the point. Nothing wrong with being “lazy” when it comes to finding a quicker efficient way to do something. As long as it does not compromise integrity.

    Lazy in the sense that you are using it carries with it no negative connotation. “Work smarter not harder” has been around for a long time. I love time savers and effort eliminators 🙂
