The football world cup 2006 is taking place in Germany and will start in exactly six days with the opening match between the host Germany and Costa Rica. Would not it be great to have a listing of all games, all teams, all kick off times and live results? Sure, you can visit a website of a local news site and hope they update the scores in real time or you could try the excellent Firefox extension called FootieFox.

FootieFox offers information about games that are played in every major league and competition in the world. You can add leagues or cups that you want to observe, for example World Cup 2006, Champions League and Champions League Qualification. After that you can select your favorite team for every league and cup, and receive information when those teams play. You will receive live scores of the matches and also get notifications when a goal is scored for instance. You'll never miss a game again with this extension, provided that you run the Firefox web browser regularly.

The extension is not showing any notifications by default, and you need to open its options to select the leagues, cups and teams that you are interested in on first run to get started.

Here you can also make lots of changes to the program's behavior. You can for instance configure alarms that inform you about upcoming matches, hide the program's icon if no games are scheduled, or select which information you want displayed in the menu.

Once you have set up the teams and leagues that you are interested in, you will notice that the extension from that moment on will display games and scores in the Firefox status bar. If there are multiple games running at the same time, you can switch to one that is of most interest to you, or open the menu to look at scores of all them right away.

Update: The world cup is over but the next is just around the corner. Plus, you not only get world cup information but also information about national leagues, other cups from around the world. If you love football this is the extension to use.

The extension gets regularly updated with new league and competition information, so that it is always up to date in this regard. If you like football, this is a must have add-on.
