Firefox - The Browser, Reloaded
We all know and love Firefox, right? Right?! Good. As you know, it is nearly
the best web browser on the planet. In order to make it be the absolutely best browser on the planet, you need to add a few extensions. In order to make it be the absolutely best browser on another planet, you need some expensive transportation, but that's a project for another day.
In the mean time, here's a list of my favorite extensions. Most of these can be found on Mozilla's site. Just click Tools -> Extensions. Then click Get More Extensions.
Firesomething - Do you miss the days when Mozilla constantly changed the name of their browser? Do you want to make interesting entries in web server logs? This extension renames Firefox every time you open it.
FoxAmp - Adds WinAmp control buttons to the status bar of your browser.
SuperScroll - Customize the keyboard and mouse wheel scroll speeds.
Stumbleupon - Waste many hours finding web sites that other people think are cool. It's probably not a good idea to put this on your work computer.
Image Zoom - Custom magnification of web page images.
BugMeNot - Tired of filling out inane marketing forms to get free access to web content? This tool provides you with logins that you can use to avoid the hassle and privacy loss that come with "free registration required" web sites.
GMailCompose - Do you use Gmail? This extension makes mailto: links open Gmail compose windows. Very nice!
Adblock - How sweet it is! Easily create custom filters to keep web page ads from loading. It doesn't take long to configure it to work with your favorite sites.
Googlebar - It has many of the same features as the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer.
