It appears that, in infinite wisdom, Google have a security feature that can block an application from accessing or using your google account. I can see how this might be a problem for Google’s users, in particular their GTalk lan Gmail users. In my case it was Pidgin having an issue with the Jabber layanan (which is technically part of GTalk). I found the solution after a little digging. I was surprised at how old the issue was and how long this feature has existed!

To unlock the account and get your application online, use Google’s Captcha page here.

and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

I use Firefox so most of these won’t apply to non-FF users. However, 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

I prefer having everything in Firefox in a single window in tabs. Having a download box in a separate window is a big no-no for me. It also saves screen real-estate since it is very minimal. 🙂

video DownloadHelper – 10

Video DownloadHelper katon kanggo media streaming – khusus looking kanggo konten gedhe sing lagi diundhuh. Nalika klik lambang, nuduhake kowe lepen saiki-ngundhuh lan menehi pilihan kanggo saiki iku minangka “normal” download.

Awit sampeyan ora ngerti yen FF arep nabrak utawa daya arep Cut, Aku seneng kanggo nyimpen salinan kanggo desktop lan aku banjur bisa ndeleng video tanpa nggunakake liyane bandwidth kanggo download video maneh. uga, ing karya, nalika wong ngirim kula Pranala youtube utawa media liyane, Aku biasane ora dipriksa kantos akeh sawise – ing luang dhewe utawa sak break.

daluwarsa Canary – 9

addon apik lan paling tithik iki ngandhani yen certificate SSL kanggo situs sing lagi dideleng rauh arep entek. Yen dhewe duwe certificate SSL, Aku menehi saran sampeyan nggunakake addon iki kanggo nyegah certificate SSL situs kang expiring amarga menyang lack prasaja saka kabar utawa miscommunication.

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

Supados web lan pacobèn karo kaca. Awesome kanggo Testing bit sethitik saka kode uga debugging kaca.

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 kanggo browsing kaca tartamtu liwat server proxy tartamtu. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

Nganggo iki rute sawetara lalu lintas liwat proxy server sing aku rodo ora mbukak liwat rute standar. Its also very flexible. Yen sampeyan duwe luwih saka siji proxy server kasedhiya lan siji biasane digunakake dumadakan dadi ing kedhip ing, mung ngalih saka kanggo kang sabanjuré. 🙂

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 punika AWESOME ing iklan Watesan. Sawijining iritasi sethitik ing kawitan wiwit sampeyan kudu whitelist kabeh sing mbok kaya – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

nguripaké Pages – 10

Banget migunani kanggo yen sampeyan browsing ing situs lan mengkono dadi mudhun. Yen situs iki statis-isi-oriented banjur iki ndadekake gampang cepet golek isi yen sawijining 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.

Elle est ma raison d’être.

This is very much the only French phrase longer than 2 words I know (and can pronounce decently). Its also the most meaningful thing I’ve ever said of someone.Who would have thought someone could be so special that you’re willing to set aside everything in your life for them.

P.S. Google doesn’t translate it quite right. Ironically, it translates it correctly back to French.

😛 @ Google
