and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

I use Firefox so most of these won’t apply to non-FF users. Dog, I’d be very very interested to hear what other addons my friends, subscribers, and random websurfers find interesting or useful to them. Have your say and let us know why you love the addons you love. 🙂

Personally, I prefer addons that aren’t intrusive. Ideally, an addon must have a minimal interface and give me a measurable benefit for me to keep it installed.

Cacheviewer – 7

This is a GUI front-end for the Cache Firefox keeps of the last few pages and media. I’ve found this addon more interesting than useful right now so I’m probably going to remove it soon.

ColorfulTabs – 9

I love the colours. The tab colour-grouping doesn’t work very well when you reach about 30 tabs though… :-/

Hent Statusbar – 10

Jeg foretrækker at have alt i Firefox i et enkelt vindue i faner. At have en download-kasse i et separat vindue er en stor no-no for mig. It also saves screen real-estate since it is very minimal. 🙂

Video DownloadHelper – 10

Video DownloadHelper ser til streaming media – specielt på udkig efter ethvert stort indhold, der bliver downloadet. Når du klikker på ikonet, det viser dig de aktuelt-download vandløb og giver dig mulighed for at stå i kø det som et “normal” downloade.

Da du aldrig vide, om FF kommer til at gå ned eller strømmen kommer til at skære, Jeg foretrækker at gemme en kopi til mit skrivebord, og jeg kan da se videoen uden at bruge mere båndbredde for at downloade videoen igen. Også, på arbejde, når folk sender mig links til youtube eller andre medier, Jeg plejer ikke gider at se indtil meget efter – på min egen fritid eller under en pause.

Expiry Canary – 9

Denne smarte og minimal addon fortæller dig, om SSL-certifikatet for det websted, du ser i øjeblikket er snart vil udløbe. Hvis dit eget websted har en SSL-certifikat, Jeg anbefaler at du bruger denne addon til at undgå dit websted SSL certifikat udløber på grund af en simpel mangel på underretning eller fejlkommunikation.

Fasterfox – 8

Fasterfox adds some network optmisation options. Some of the options could make your corporate network admin a little mad with you though. 😉

Firebug – 9

For webudvikling og eksperimenter med sider. Awesome til test små bidder af kode samt debugging sider.

FoxClocks – 6

errtells you the time in other time zones. o.O Was useful for a short timenow its redundant since my head is working it out faster than I can glance. rm -f

FoxyProxy – 9

Awesome til gennemsyn bestemte sider gennem specifikke proxyservere. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the Saix Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

Jeg bruger dette til at dirigere nogle trafik over proxy-servere, som jeg vil hellere ikke gå igennem standard ruter. Its also very flexible. Hvis du har mere end én proxyserver til rådighed, og den, du normalt bruger pludselig går på blink, bare skifte over til den næste. 🙂

Greasemonkey – 10

Right now, I use this only for the GooglemonkeyR script. This script reformats Google‘s search results to your specifications and also has an option to show small thumbnail of the pages Google links to. Greasemonkey can do a lot more and there are plenty of scripts readily available for many many sites.

Live HTTP headers – 8

I’ve used this a few times to diagnose gzip compression issues with IIS web servers. Not much else to say though: It works.

Live PageRank – 10 (so faronly installed it yesterday)

This addon seems simple enough. It gets the PageRank from Google and shows it in the tray.

NoScript – 10

NoScript er AWESOME på blokerer reklamer. Dens lidt irriterende i starten, da du skal whiteliste alle de steder, du kan lide – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

genoplive sider – 10

Meget nyttigt for hvis du navigerer til et websted, og det sker for at være ned. Hvis webstedet er statisk-indhold-orienteret så det gør det nemt hurtigt at finde det indhold, hvis dens cached online.

Tab Mix Plus – 8

Awesome for if you have more than 7-or-so tabs.

ShowIP (using a version modified for work purposesdisplays company server’s canonical name when browsing) – 10

I cannot imagine the hell I’d have to go through to identify a server without this plugin. Okay, I can. Used to have to do this all the time. I eventually scripted it but I can’t find the original script. Here’s my 60-second attempt at recreating what was in that script:

$ cat /etc/hosts | grep `dig A $hostname @mycachingnameserver | grep . | grep -v "^;"`
$ dig -x `dig A $hostname @mycachingnameserver | grep ^$hostname | grep A | \
  awk '/[.]/{print $5}'` @mycachingnameserver | grep . | grep -v "^;"

Web Developer – 9

I used this once to diagnose some issues with a page. I don’t do much web development so I’m going to remove this one. Its no comment on its capabilities since I believe this is a top notch add-on if you’re doing a lot of web development work.

    Foxmarks looks very nice indeed. I’m a little wary of sharing my passwords (or bookmarks for that matter) with another organisation. I see mention of a feature to use your own web space instead of using foxmarksserver so I’m investigating further. 🙂

    Their wiki shows what’s necessary to set it up on your own server. I’ll give this a bash.

    The real excuse is that DSL is slooooooowwwwand vid sites are rate-limited at the office. I’d rather watch it in perfect harmony from my local disk than in a browser window. 😛
