This handy plugin enables you to see preview thumbnails of your psd files. This can be really helpful to someone who has a load of psds and has no idea what they are.

Normally when I attempt to find a site listing search syntax usable on YouTube, I often get crappy results but I finally got one!

Ever get tricked into clicking on a video to find out that it’s a crappy video because YouTube doesn’t display ratings on the listings? Well, if you have Firefox, you can use the Greasemonkey plugin to run this script.
