With the epic world record release of Firefox 3 last week (8 million downloads!) loads of extensions have been popping up to make your browsing experience even more enjoyable distracting.
FireNes will let you play 2000+ Nintendo games right from your sidebar within Firefox. You’ll need to install Java first (yea, I know, but get over it) and then the Firefox extension from the link below to get things going. Check the FAQ at the site for controls and make sure you click inside the game window to active them.
Double Dare, Bubble Bobble and Excite Bike included.
Work can wait.
