My top Firefox Add-ons
I was reading Webware's Seth Rosenblatt's post, Futzing with features: Firefox add-ons in 2008, and it made me think about the Add-ons in Firefox that I use on a daily basis. Here my top 10, in ranked in order of value to me:
- RoboForm: More than an Add-on, more like a toolbar in itself, RoboForm stores all my passwords. If I could only have 1 Add-on, this one would be it. Read my blog post from January 14, 2007, to learn about the powerful features of RoboForm.
- IE Tab: Sometimes you just have to look at a page using Internet Explorer -- for those times, I use IE Tab.
- Download Statusbar: With download status bar, I don't have to bother with a pop-up window everytime I download, instead I have a small icon in my status bar.
- Tiny Menu: This Add-on allowed me to combine toolbars, freeing up some real estate. With Tiny Menu I went from 5 toolbars to 3 without giving up any functionality.
- TwitterFox: Without TwitterFox, I wouldn't be using Twitter.
- FoxClocks: So I can easily tell what time it is in Tokyo (and other parts of the world).
- Delicious Bookmarks: Another toolbar. Without Delicious Bookmarks, I wouldn't be using delicious.
- Forecastfox: Let's me see the current weather and forcast right from my Status bar.
- Web Developer: A menu and toolbar with various web developer tools.
