Using Firefox to Access System Commands And Other Programs In Your Computer

Recently I posted an article about Pale Moon, which is a spin-off of Firefox. Since Pale Moon is technically Firefox in disguise, that has been optimized to run faster, I have been playing around with some of the Firefox add-ons and extensions, that run just as well with Pale Moon. I especially like the portable version of Pale Moon and encourage you to give it a try. I really love it and can attest it is the best browser out there that has been optimized to run from a flash drive.  I also have the portable version of Pale Moon installed on my computer and I find myself using it more and more.

A Firefox (or Pale Moon) add-on that especially caught my attention, that recently was released by Mozilla Online, is called Easy Access. This add-on is special in that it gives you the ability to access and launch the system commands and other programs in your computer from the status bar that is located at the bottom of the browser window.

For example, using the screenshot below, you will see a grouping of icons (programs) that I added using Easy Access, which allows me to launch these programs from my browser window.

Easy Access

By default, Easy Access installs with a some commonly used programs (such as Notepad, Paint, Calculator, and My Computer). It is very easy to add additional programs to this listing by by clicking on the Easy Access icon and clicking on Manage Your Own Easy Access.
