Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

photobucketA new Firefox plugin called Identify makes the task of information-gathering easier, by displaying information and links to someone's blogs and social profiles with just one keypress. From any page with a "rel=me" line -- that's most blogs, Twitter pages and other profiles -- hitting control-i on a Mac or alt-i on a PC will show you the info.

Identify is good for finding info on others -- including contact info like phone numbers and addresses, sometimes -- but you can also use it to see much information you're revealing. If you want to make sure you're easy to find and all of your profiles are linked, give it a spin and correct as needed. Twitter, FriendFeed, Digg, Flickr and LinkedIn are just some of the sites Identify searches for info.
