Digg have released their first Firefox 3 extension. The extension comes with a toolbar and a status bar button. The toolbar shows you Digg counts and comments of sites you visit and also includes the ability to digg new sites.

The status bar button on the other hand allows you to track new Diggs from topics you subscribe to and also tracks Diggs from your friends.

Both the toolbar and status bar button are fully customizable and best of all, they both have a “Zzz…” button to turn off notifications temporarily.  Useful when your brain’s suffering from information overload.

Overall I find the extension to be well thought off. Non intrusive and best of all it does not use up my precious browser real-estate. Love the Zzz… button!!
