These are the FireFox Extensions that I currently use:
- Gmail Notifier : if you own a Gmail e-mail account, and don’t like Gmail’s own notifier, this is the one. It integrates with Firefox, and it can be set up to automatically sign in and check for new mail every certain interval of time.
- Performancing : if you blog, this is the ultimate tool for you. Instead of visiting your provider’s post page everytime you want to post, you can now post with a click of a mouse. Intergrated into your bottom FF toolbar, you can post, edit, and save notes. With WordPress provider, there are only 3 minuses in Performancing;
- you can’t post Pages or edit them,
- you can’t create new categories (though the already-available categories can be used).
- you can’t integrate more than WP blog in the same account. Only the main blog is chosen.
In short, it’s a valuable tool, and I personally use it to post to this blog.
- Bookmark Backup : have talked about this before, here.
- Sage : a Feed (RSS, Atom) reader. Had tried Wizz RSS News Reader before this, but – though the latter has more features – I found Sage to be much more versatile. It intergrates into your sidebar, and makes viewing the News a breeze.
- UnPlug : this incredible extension makes you able to extract embedded video, audio, and flash files from websites where such files cannot be directly downloaded. Ever passed by a cool flash game and wished you could save it to your desk? Ever watched a nice YouTube video and wanted it saved forever in your hard disk? This is the magic tool you were looking for. Much better than VideoDownloader, which has only proved to crash when I expected otherwise.
- DownThemAll! : with this download tool, you are able to download several files simultaneously and automatically from a certain webpage. Not very powerful though; for example, if there is a webpage with 350 thumbnail images, each linking to a bigger image hosted on a free image hosting site, where the image is shown within a frame, surrounded by ads. DownThemAll cannot download such big images. Instead, it will only save the frame page as html, or php, without the images. In short, you need completely direct links for this to work efficiently.
Well, quite interesting extensions, eh? Do you use any other FF extensions that you think are worth a note? Let us know..!
