and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

I use firefox so most of these won’t apply to non-FF users. Madankollu, 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 jistenna għall-midja streaming – tiftix speċifiku għal kwalunkwe kontenut kbira li jkun qed jitniżżel. Meta tikklikkja fuq l-ikona, dan juri li inti l-flussi bħalissa-tniżżil u jagħtik l-għażla li kju bħala “normali” download.

Peress li int qatt ma tkun taf jekk FF se crash jew l-enerġija hija se taqtgħu, I d jippreferu li tiffranka kopja lill-desktop tiegħi u I jistgħu mbagħad tara l-video mingħajr l-użu aktar bandwidth biex tniżżel il-video darb'oħra. wkoll, ix-xoghol, meta n-nies tibgħatli links għal YouTube jew mezzi oħra, I normalment ma jolqot jaraw till ħafna wara – fil-ħin liberu tiegħi stess jew waqt waqfa.

skadenza Kanarji – 9

Din il addon pulita u minimu jgħidlek jekk iċ-ċertifikat SSL għas-sit int qed tara dalwaqt se jiskadi. Jekk is-sit tiegħek ikollu ċertifikat SSL, I jirrakkomandaw inti tuża din addon biex jgħinu biex jiġu evitati ċertifikat SSL sit tiegħek li jiskadi minħabba nuqqas sempliċi ta 'notifika jew komunikazzjoni ħażina.

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

Għall-iżvilupp tal-web u l-esperimentazzjoni bil-paġni. Tal-biża għall-ittestjar bits ftit ta 'kodiċi kif ukoll debugging paġni.

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

Tal-biża għall browsing paġni speċifiċi permezz ta 'servers ta' prokura speċifiċi. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

I jużaw dan biex ir-rotta xi traffiku fuq servers ta 'prokura li jien d pjuttost ma jgħaddu r-rotot default. Its also very flexible. Jekk għandek server proxy aktar minn wieħed disponibbli u l-wieħed li tuża normalment f'daqqa tmur fuq il-blink, ftit jisswiċċja għal dak li jmiss. 🙂

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 huwa tal-biża fil reklami imblukkar. a irritanti ftit tiegħu fl-ewwel peress li inti għandek whitelist s-siti kollha li tixtieq – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

resurrect Paġni – 10

Utli ħafna għall jekk inti jibbrawżjaw għal sit u dan jiġri jkun isfel. Jekk is-sit hija statika-kontenut orjentati allura dan jagħmilha faċli biex malajr issib il-kontenut jekk tiegħu Cached fuq l-internet.

Tab Ħallat 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.
