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. 🙂

DownloadHelper Видео – 10

Видео DownloadHelper назар барои сӯи ВАО – махсусан дар ҷустуҷӯи ягон мундариҷа калон аст, ки ҳоло бор. Вақте, ки шумо дар тасвири зер кунед, он ба шумо менамоёнад ҷараёни айни-зеркашии ва ба шумо медиҳад, имконияти ба он дар навбат ҳамчун “муқаррарӣ” боргирӣ.

Азбаски шумо ҳаргиз медонед, ки агар FF аст, ба садама ё қудрат аст, ба бурида, Ман мехоҳам бартарӣ ба наҷот нусхаи онро ба мизи кории ман ва он гоҳ ман дидани Видео бе истифодаи Барои дарёфти Видео боз маҷрои бештар. ҳамчунин, дар кор, вақте ки одамон ирсол маро ба YouTube ё дигар воситаҳои ахбори омма Пайвандҳои дар ин саҳифа, Ман одатан ташвиш нест, тамошо то зиёд баъд аз – дар истироњат худ ё дар давоми танаффус.

саромадан Canary – 9

Ин addon тозаву озода ва њадди аќал ба шумо мегӯяд, ки агар шаҳодатномаи SSL барои сайти шумо ҳоло тамошои аст, ба зудӣ ба охир мерасад. Агар сомонаи худ дорои сертификати SSL, Ман тавсия шумо истифода аз ин addon барои кӯмак ба пешгирӣ сертификати SSL сайти шумо ба итмом сабаби набудани оддии хаттӣ ё огоҳиномаи 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

Барои рушди веб ва озмоишҳо, бо Саҳифаҳои. Олӣ барои озмоиш Лаҷом каме Кодекси инчунин debugging саҳифаҳо.

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

Олӣ барои дидани саҳифаҳои махсус ба воситаи серверҳои прокси махсус. This is useful for when some sites are blocked or the SAIX Transparent Proxy servers aren’t working properly. 🙂

Ман аз ин истифода бурда, ба масири ҳаракати нақлиёт баъзе серверҳо бар прокси, ки ман ба ҷои мехоҳам тавассути хатсайрҳои пешфарз рафта нест,. Its also very flexible. Агар шумо зиёда аз як сервер прокси дастрас ва касе, ки шумо одатан ногаҳон истифода меравад, дар чашмионашро, танҳо гузаштан ба дасти яке аз оянда. 🙂

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 Олӣ дар эълонҳо бастани аст,. як асабоникунанда каме он дар аввал, зеро шумо ба whitelist ҳамаи пойгоҳе, ки шумо мехоҳед – but in the long run it is soooo worth it. 🙂

Саҳифаҳое, эҳё мекунад – 10

Ҷадвалбандии 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 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.
