Lorem Ipsum Text Generator

I ran across an excellent Firefox plug-in today if you design or build a lot of web sites. It could actually be used for print as well.

Doing web site builds, I always need Lorem Ipsum, or dummy text, to fill out the content areas of the sites I am building. A while back, I found a web site that I normally use for generating Lorem Ipsum text, http://www.lipsum.com/.

It works very well. But, whenever I use it, I have to search for the web site in Google. Then, I run the program that generates the text. Then, I copy and paste the text in my web page. It works very well. But, I remembered hearing about a plug-in for Firefox that generated Lorem Ipsum text.

Today, I decided rather than go through all those steps again, I would try to find the plug-in and see how well it works. Well, I found it and after trying it out, I think it works great!

The plug-in, LoremIpsum Content Generator, can be found at https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/198/. Once you download and install the plug-in to Firefox, it is very easy to use. Just go to the tools menu, and click on the generate Lorem Ipsum text option. There it brings up a window which gives you several options. You can generate text by character, words or paragraphs. After that, all you have to do is click the button to copy the text to the clipboard and paste it into your work.

I recommend this plug-in to anyone who uses Lorem Ipsum text on a daily basis. I think you will it is a small step but is worth it to increase your productivity!
