and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

I use Firefox so most of these won’t apply to non-FF users. Hala eta guztiz ere, 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… :-/

Download Statusbar – 10

Firefox dena nahiago dut beharrik fitxetan leiho bakar batean. download kutxa bat edukitzeak beste leiho batean big niretzat no-no bat da. It also saves screen real-estate since it is very minimal. 🙂

Video DownloadHelper – 10

Video DownloadHelper media streaming itxura – zehazki, deskargatzen ari den edozein eduki handien bila. Noiz egin klik ikonoaren gainean, Unean-deskargatzea erreka erakusten da zuk eta aukera ezazu bat bezala ilaran ematen dizu “normal” deskargatu.

Geroztik ez dakizu bada FF da huts egingo edo boterea da moztu joan, Nahiago nuke kopia bat gorde nire mahaigainean eta gero I bideoa ikusi ahal banda zabalera gehiago erabiliz bideoa berriro deskargatu gabe. Halaber, lanean, denean jendea bidali lotzen youtube edo beste komunikabide me, normalean ez dut traba askoz arte behaketa ondoren – Nire aisialdi propioa edo atseden batean.

Expiry Canary – 9

addon neat eta gutxieneko honek kontatzen baduzu SSL Orain ikusten ari zaren gunearen ziurtagiria iraungitzear joan. Zeure gune SSL ziurtagiri bat badu, Gehigarri hau erabiltzen duzun gunearen SSL ziurtagiria expiring saihesteko laguntzeko ondorioz jakinarazpen edo miscommunication eza sinple bat gomendatzen dut.

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

Web garapena eta esperimentazioa orriak For. kodea bit little orrialdeak probatzen baita arazteko Awesome.

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

Orri jakin arakatzen Proxy zerbitzarietan zehatzen bidez Awesome. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

hau erabiltzen dut ibilbidera trafiko batzuk Proxy zerbitzarietan hori nahiago dut ez ibilbide lehenetsi bidez joan baino. Its also very flexible. proxy zerbitzari bat baino gehiago ditugu eskura, eta inork erabili ohi duzu, bat-batean keinu egiten bazaio,, piztu baino gehiago, hurrengo bat. 🙂

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 iragarkiak blokeatzen at AWESOME. Bere lehen at irritating apur bat guneak nahi duzun guztia zurian behar duzu geroztik – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

berpizteko artikuluak – 10

Oso nabigatzen baduzu gune bat baliagarriak eta behera gertatzen da. Gunean bada estatiko-eduki bideratutako gero hau errazten edukia azkar aurkitu bere online cached bada.

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.
