Firefox Extensionsby Mitch on 23/05/2006
I’ve used Firefox for a long time now and tried out various extensions to make life easier. Some I have deleted, some I have kept, but here is the list that I have found most useful.
- Sage would have to be the best newsreader I have ever used, and the fact it’s inside the browser makes it doubly useful.
- Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer allows me to synchronize my bookmarks between Windows/Linux and my USB drive when I am away from my computer.
- Gmail Manager notifies me when I receive new e-mail to my Gmail account.
- VideoDownloader is an extension that allows you to save the video files viewed on Youtube, Google Videos etc.
- JustBlogIt makes writing my A-sides a very simple task. This plugin allows me to make quick entries to my blog, automatically creating the links you see on the right of the website.
- del.icio.us allows me to add links to my del.icio.us account for viewing on the right hand side also.
- Google Notebook is what I use to collect notes when I am writing. It’s an online scrapbook of thoughts.
- Web Developer allows me to live edits of CSS and view valuable information about a website when I am designing.
- Colorzilla, an eyedropper for a website, it allows me to quickly grab and change colors when I am designing.
- MeasureIt is a plugin I don’t use often, but it helps me when I want to know how wide a div/span is or a banner needs to be.
- IE Tab allows me to see what my site looks like in
the shitty browser known asIE.
