Back in March we talked about TwitterFox for Firefox. We’ve come a long way since. While twitter has gained immense popularity since then, the very means and ways of accessing it has got easier and seamless. TwitterFox is now known as Echofon. While most of you are already familiar with this incredibly useful tool, I’ll introduce it to the others and also talk about its many a useful features.
A Firefox extension. to put it simply, Echofon sits as a tiny icon in the bottom right corner of your browser and notifies you in the form of a small text alert.
Discussing its many remarkable features. Firstly, it shows you the latest tweets coming in from your friends. Now sharing a link is no more tedious. All you need to do is click the link button in the bottom right corner of your screen. So you keep browsing and won’t have to go elsewhere from your very own browser.
The interface is minimal and very easy to use. New tweets are easy to find as they are on the top and have a blue background. A mouse over on them reveals the reply button. With the arrival of Echofon you put an end to manually checking twitter. You can set a predefined interval at which Echofon keeps checking for new tweets coming in.
Moreover, you also have access to your direct messages box. If you do not wish to make a public tweet you could just send a direct message to your friend.
The said software is also supposed to have the ability to sync with the iPhone version of the client. I haven’t yet tried that so cannot comment about that but we’ll cover that soon too.
So those of you who haven’t tried this yet, shoot to this page now echofon.com/twitter/firefox/ and get your browser the latest version of Echofon.
