My Firefox Add-ons

My Firefox Add-ons:

  • DownloadHelper – I use this to download videos from sites. Works with most video websites.
  • Extended Cookie Manager – I have my Firefox block all cookies by default. Then I use this add-on to easily add/remove sites from my whitelist and manage cookies.
  • Fast Dial – Fast Dial replaces blank tabs with a panel of thumbnails of your favorite sites. This add-on mimics a feature of the Opera browser.
  • Firebug – Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page.
  • FlashGot – Download all the links, movies and audio clips of a page at the maximum speed with a single click, using the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers.
  • FormFox – This extension displays the form action (the site to which the information you’ve entered is being sent.) In any place where you can enter data, from search boxes to order forms, mouse over the final Submit button to reveal the destination.
  • McAfee SiteAdvisor – tells you if the website you are visiting is dangerous, potentially harmful or safe. These warning signs also appear in your search results from search engines.
  • NoScript – a must-have add-on for Firefox. This one allows active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS attacks.
  • PDFDownload – Use PDF Download to do whatever you like with PDF files on the Web. Regain control of them and eliminate browser problems, view PDFs directly in Firefox as HTML, and use the all-new Web-to-PDF toolbar to save and share Web pages as high-quality PDF files.
  • Scrapbook – I find this add-on very useful. It lets you save websites(or parts thereof) for offline browsing. These saved webpages can then be modified by the user with its user-friendly editor.
  • StumbleUpon – StumbleUpon discovers web sites based on your interests, learns what you like and brings you more. A fun way to explore the web.

I’m home

So I have finally chosen this small portion of the Internet and call it mine. My interest in blogging has risen considerably in the past few weeks. There are so many things to learn; so many things to do. The task seemed daunting at first, but I grew fond of it. At last, I’m home.
