Reminder Fox - Scheduler and ToDo List for FireFox

Reminder FoxI'm somewhat of a productivity zealot and I love any application that helps me stay on task. Reminder Fox is designed to do just that. One of the better Firefox extensions I've found, Reminder Fox sits quietly in the bottom left corner of the browser and lets you manage a to do list and schedule reminders.

There are two tabs on Reminder Fox: Reminders and ToDos. When you schedule a reminder you can give it a description, a date, a time (reminders can also be all day events), and a priority. You can also schedule a reoccurring reminder and have the application alert you daily until you complete a task. It even provides a calendar so adding items is as simple as double clicking the day in question. All within Firefox! This is a very simple and slick way to remind myself to feed the office fish Mondays, meet my wife for lunch Wednesdays, get that report done by Friday, etc.

The ToDo tab is much the same. You can still set a date for a ToDo item if you wish, but there is no reoccurring feature. You can view all your to do items together and move them around as needed. Once you complete an item it is crossed off the list.

Scrolling over the knot in the bottom corner of the browser will pop up a tool tip showing you what you have scheduled for the day. You can even view your entries as HTML which can be useful for exporting, etc.

For the power user ReminderFox has a ton of options to help you customize the application. Almost every default value or behavior of the tool is changeable. You can also add more tabs (so you aren't limited to Reminder and ToDos but you could also have a Home To Do List, for example). You can even save all the data to an FTP Server for backup purposes or to sync your Reminders across computers.

ReminderFox is an excellent replacement for Outlook and online reminder systems and is so light weight you'll hardly notice it is there. Go get it!
