Between the way the extension handled the pictures, dropboxes for the links and easy sizing of the box it was a breeze to throw up on the frontpage. Best of all, it all comes together so easily, a new set of featured stories can be changed in minutes.
If I were to have a wishlist for the next upgrade; picking the fonts and rollover colors for the headlines through the interface would be perfect. Also an autosizing feature for the boxes hieght would be a great next time.
But this extension makes my website look as flashy as the expensive news sites for little cost!
