My Top Must Have Firefox Extensions
I’m always amazed that people use Internet Explorer over Firefox. With the available extensions Firefox becomes the nerve center of your Internet activity. Lifehacker quite often has good suggestions for FF Extensions to try out.
These are what I use. All links go to more information about the extension.
- Google Toolbar for Firefox
- Also avilable for IE
- Adblock Plus – people still surf the net with ads?!
- PDF Download – I hate embedded Adobe Reader (which is why I use FoxIt)
Bookmarking / Sharing Sites
- del.icio.us - I use religiously, even automatically generating blog posts off of it and sharing my del.icio.us links with people on Twitter
- stumbleupon – not a productivity tool :)
- Greasemonkey – I’ve written several greasemonkey scripts to make blogging with WordPress easier
- DOM Inspector – needed for coding with Greasemonkey
- Web Developer – CSS development, mainly because I haven’t figured out Firebug yet. The easiest way to create a skin for a theme without having to spend a lot of time learning the underlying structure – click on an element and find out how to access it.
Some I plan to try out: Firebug, Stylish, IETab, CustomizeGoogle
What do you use/recommend?
