Firefox 3.5 is out already a few days! Get if folks! Ditch your Opera, IE, Chrome and Safari!
I thought I’d share my Add-Ons I pretty much use on daily basis.
Ads, oh how I loathe them. This addons takes care of every ad I came across until today. I’m 100% ad-free! Of course websites who rely on their only income, ads, will suffer from this.
So remember, if you have a favorite site you frequently visit and it relies on ad revenue to keep alive, un-block and support it!
Remember the 5 tweaks I posted way back then? Well this Add-On takes care of it automatically. Except this LITE version, which is the only one functioning for 3.5, doesn’t have prefetching.
If you don’t like to do these manual tweaks this is the Add-On for you.
Edit 25.09.2009: Fasterfox has been updated to run with 3.5 since August 26th 2009. Not the Lite, the normal one!
Since I sometime need to know about the location of a website or its server, Flagfox gives me their IP, location and ask whois detailed information, if needed to be.
If you own a single GMail account this is small addon to notify you if you got new mails in the inbox. There’s a GMail Manager for those with multiple accounts.
Perhaps the most important Add-On for Firefox. It is, assumed it’s correctly configured, what makes Firefox and in turn your computer so resilient to scripts, Keyloggers and viruses.
I can pretty much click any link I come across without fear of somehow installing malicious software, keyloggers or viruses.
This Add-On is constantly being updated to keep up against scripts, keyloggers and viruses who try to circumvent NoScript. 3 cheers to open-source!
I think the name explains it all. It allows you to choose between downloading a PDF file or opening it up
With 1-click-hosters such as Rapidshare, Netload, Megaupload, etc. becoming widely popular this Add-On is pretty much a must have if you want to skip all the unnecessary pages to go directly to download.
