Max out your Flash gaming habit with Flash Game Maximizer


Are you tired of squinting at a tiny screen for your lunchtime Desktop Tower Defence habit? Well, squint no longer with the Flash Game Maximizer Firefox add-on. Although some games have a built-in ‘fullscreen’ option, many don’t, and this add-on lets you pump any which don’t up to full 1920×1280, or whatever massive resolution you’re running in.

The add-on’s still ‘experimental’, so you’ll need to log in to Firefox’s add-ons site to download it. When installed, you get a little box in the bottom right hand corner. When it detects flash, it’ll turn yellow, and you can then click it to go fullscreen. Unfortunately it will reset any game currently in progress, so be careful of that. Still, it’s a nice way of avoiding those annoying ads all around the game, and increasing the sense of immersion.
