Firefox > Internet Explorer

As much time as we spend online these days, we need something to remind us to stay on top of our prayer times.. whether it's our parents, a good friend or our neighborhood firefox browser. Besides the handy dandy technological advances of Firefox, there are some very cool Muslim friendly add-ons (what are add-ons?) that you can use to remind you to un-glue your self from your screen and get to your prayers. Maybe one of these days Internet Explorer can learn from it's advanced competitor how to be more Muslim friendly. Maybe.

Muslim Friendly Firefox Add-On #1: Fzami

I'm not quite sure why the creator of this add-on named it Fzami but this add-on allows you to display the prayer times for all 5 prayers or the next prayer at the bottom of your browser. Installs with a very clean look and you can adjust the time for your local city without taking up space on your desktop! (The list of prayer times shown in the picture below only appears when you place your mouse on the prayer times at the bottom of your browser).


Muslim Friendly Firefox Add-On #2: Azan Times!

This add-on is also used for Prayer reminders except it has a count down system. This means that it will tell you the hours, minutes and even seconds until the next prayer! (The list of prayer times shown in the picture below only appears when you place your mouse on the prayer times at the bottom of your browser). I like this one a lot because it makes it easy to plan your day around your prayers.

Note: Both add-ons use Islamic Finder to calculate prayer times so you are free to choose various methods of prayer calculation.

in sha' Allah there will be more Muslim friendly add-ons coming soon - keep it up Firefox!!

..and Internet Explorer, step it up!!
