My favourite web-browser, Firefox, is light-weight and extensible. I love that I’m able to add stuff to it, and customize my experience.
Recently I’ve been trying out the new 1.5 beta version (which is great, by the way), but I’ve had to switch back to 1.0 because of various incompatabilities. During this switch, I lost my extensions. Seeing as I have to install them all over again, I might as well compile a list of links right here. Maybe you’ll learn something. Maybe I will.
- Tabbrowser Preferences
- PageRank Status
- IE View
- Web Developer Toolbar
- Plain Text Links
A light weight tab extender that allows you to force new windows to open in tabs instead of, well, new windows.
Saves your Browsing session, including open tabs and textfield contents.
Shows the Google PageRank in the statusbar.
Allows you to quickly open active page in Internet Explorer.
I usually close the toolbar itself, but I do use the right-click context menu.
For web URLs that aren’t clickable, Plain Text Links allows you to select the text, then right-click and select “View URL in new Tab”.
Right-click, select “Start Aardvark”, and immediately block level HTML elements beneath the cursor are highlighted. Incredibly useful.
How’s your customization?
