How to resize any online comments box

By Mark O’Neill

During one of my many stumbling expeditions, I came across a cool Firefox extension which allows you to resize most text boxes on a webpage. This is useful if you’re in the habit of commenting on a lot of blogs and the blog owner gives you an area the size of a postage stamp upon which to write your comment – present blog excluded of course!

But it isn’t just blogs that this extension would be useful for.  Many online registration forms are tiny and you can use this resizing tool to expand the size of the boxes on them.

You can also use the tool to expand the size of the WordPress blog box when writing a new post (or on any blogging platform for that matter). There’s lots of possibilities out there.

So next time you want to comment on GAS, use the resizing tool to expand that box!

  1. Um, Safari 3.0.4 does this (since Leopard). It is quite useful, only that webpages usually get distorted when you expand the text box.

    • Yes, some pages are temporarily distorted by expanding the text box. However, when you have submitted your comment, just refresh the webpage and everything goes back to normal.
