and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

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

Streaming video in media quaerit DownloadHelper – quod in specie quaeris quis magna content downloaded est. Si vos click in icon, patefactus est currently download-flumina queue permittitque vobis ut bene “Northmanni” download.

Quia si numquam aut fragosus potestas futura FF incidam, Escritorio mallem ad exemplar et salvare potest videre sine more Sed video rursus video Download. etiam, at opus,, me, cum links ad YouTube aut alia media, Vigilantes usque ad fere non pugnes contra tanto post – at mihi per otium, sive divulsionem.

Finis Canary – 9

Haec dicit addon neat, et minime si site tu currently SSL testimonium enim visum est, ut statim perii. Quisque tortor si habet SSL, Ego suadeo ut vos ne hoc addon vestri site est scriptor libellum SSL prae debitum ad defectum notitia simplex vel 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

Nam et experimenta Web page. Terribilis ut enim probaret parum bits of code debugging pages.

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

Pasco paginae et terribilis species specifica per procuratorem server. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

Negotium in hoc itinere uti procuratorem server potius quam ne pro defectu itineribus. Its also very flexible. Si plures una fere uti procuratorem server available fiunt subito ictu, iustus transibit ad sequentem. 🙂

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.

Back – 10

Back is awesome at consequat advertit. Et primo quod paulo vexo whitelist tibi vis omnia loca – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

Pages resurgent – 10

Utilis ad situm et si forte ad vos pasco. Static content-ordinantur, si in is site est non facile hoc fecit ut cito invenire online contentus per print.

Tab Confundo 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.
