and my Personal Rating (PR) out of 10 😉

I use फायरफक्स 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. 🙂

भिडियो DownloadHelper – 10

भिडियो DownloadHelper मिडिया स्ट्रिम लागि देखिन्छ – विशेष डाउनलोड भइरहेको छ कि कुनै पनि ठूलो सामग्रीको लागि देख. जब तपाईं आइकनमा क्लिक, यो तपाईं हाल-डाउनलोड प्रवाहको देखाउँछ र तपाईं एक रूपमा लाममा विकल्प दिन्छ “सामान्य” डाउनलोड.

देखि तपाईं एफएफ दुर्घटनामा रहेको छ भने थाहा कहिल्यै वा शक्ति कटौती रहेको छ, म मेरो डेस्कटपमा प्रतिलिपि सुरक्षित गर्न रूचाउँछु र म त फेरि भिडियो डाउनलोड गर्न थप ब्यान्डविथ प्रयोग बिना भिडियो हेर्न सक्नुहुन्छ. साथै, कममा, मानिसहरूले मलाई YouTube वा अन्य मिडिया जोडिन्छ पठाउनुभयो, म सामान्यतया पछि धेरै सम्म हेर्दै चिन्ता छैन – मेरो आफ्नै अवकाश वा एक ब्रेक समयमा.

समाप्ति को क्यानरी – 9

तपाईं हाल हेर्दै हुनुहुन्छ साइट लागि SSL प्रमाणपत्र चाँडै समाप्त रहेको छ भने यो चिटिक्क र न्यूनतम addon तपाईं बताउँछ. आफ्नो साइट एक SSL प्रमाणपत्र छ भने, म तपाईंलाई कारण सूचना वा miscommunication को एक सरल कमी आफ्नो साइटको SSL प्रमाणपत्र समाप्त हुँदैछ जोगिन मदत गर्न यो addon प्रयोग गर्न सिफारिस.

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

वेब विकास र प्रयोग पृष्ठ संग को लागि. कोड को सानो बिट पृष्ठ परीक्षण साथै सच्याउनका लागि उत्कृष्ट.

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

विशिष्ट प्रोक्सी सर्भर मार्फत विशिष्ट पृष्ठ ब्राउज लागि उत्कृष्ट. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

म बरु पूर्वनिर्धारित मार्गहरू मार्फत जान चाहन्छु कि प्रोक्सी सर्भर माथि यो मार्गमा केही यातायात प्रयोग. Its also very flexible. तपाईँले एक भन्दा बढी प्रोक्सी सर्भर उपलब्ध छन् र तपाईं सामान्यतया अचानक प्रयोग एक झिम्काउन मा जान्छ भने, बस अर्को एक भन्दा बढी स्विच. 🙂

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 अवरुद्ध विज्ञप्ति मा उत्कृष्ट छ. यसको एक सानो तपाईं चाहनुहुन्छ सबै साइटहरु सेतोसूचीमा छ देखि सुरुमा रिस – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

पन्ने पुनरुत्थान – 10

तपाईं एक साइटमा ब्राउज यदि लागि धेरै उपयोगी र यसलाई तल हुन हुन्छ. साइट हो भने स्थिर-सामग्री-उन्मुख त्यसपछि यो यो चाँडै सामग्री फेला पार्न सजिलो यसको अनलाइन क्यास यदि बनाउँछ.

ट्याब मिक्स प्लस – 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 rocks!
    Synchronised bookmarks at work and at home.

    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.
