Everyone who´s looking forward to the forthcoming world mastership in soccer (german football; which might have originated in Scotland, btw) but also busy for many hours on his or her computer can check out a new free plugin to add to the firefox browser.
This add on works in English, German, many languages including Chinese and yet automatically realizes which country you are visiting with your laptop, or where you are currently at home. It then puts a subtle sports section of a few pixels down on the right of the status bar, showing the 2 flags of whatever game you want to monitor automatically. Its alarm can go GOAL! or just moo!, whatever sound u like each time something happens in the game that changes the score.
Works either to monitor only your favorite European or World soccer team, or all games of a series of your choice, friendship games, german 1. or 2. liga, anything.
Optically the status bar also shows whether the game is not on yet, when it will start (in YOUR local time), whether its on or over and what the score is. And total scores and much more.
It only works for versions at least with build no. 1.5x or higher. BUT:
NOW build 1.53 of firefox itself is ALSO FREE (time unlimited). If you decide to install that over your previous let´s say formerly used build 1.07 or deer whatever build, first get the plugin for automatic backup of ALL YOUR SETTINGS for the OLD version.
The 1.53 build then asks you whether you want to update THAT plugin. Do that! Then install the soccer plugin. Enjoy!
