Not using Firefox? Go back to the ancient times! Firefox is the trend-setter and industry standard in today’s internet browsers. It is user-friendly, a thousand times safer than IE, free, open-source, multi-platform, highly-customizable and a webmaster’s partner. Use it and be empowered over the web.
The full potential of Firefox is actually released through the numerous add-ons available for free use. These are the ones compatible with FF 2.0 and I highly recommend all of them. Here are my top 15 add-on favorites in random order:
Adblock Plus: Block those casino, porn and Spyware ads. At last!
Better Gmail: After using this, gmail experience will never be the same again. Promise!
DownThemAll!: A nifty and handy Firefox download manager. Never disappoints.
ErrorZilla: Eliminate that “try again” button. Here’s the next generation of error handling.
Public Fox: Tired of cleaning stuff people download? Use this to limit file downloading. Prevent browser changes. Public Fox blocks users from downloading unwanted files. Locks down Add-ons, Preferences, ‘about:config’, and Bookmarks. You can also block websites. All these you can do with a centralized password.
FoxyTunes: Very solid. Switch immediately for one player to another without the need of opening or clicking their launch icons. Foxytunes does it all for you inside Firefox.
IE Tab: Still stuck in the dark ages? Then just give this little bombshell a try.
ImageBot: Never forget to bring this stuff if you’re accustomed to using Imageshack or Photobucket.
PDF Download: PDF Download lets you choose how you want to handle a PDF file: Read it in your favorite browser, download it, open it in an external application or view it as an HTML document.
WindizUpdate: Throw away the unsecured Windows Update still stuck in the IE engine. Use this powerful tool and be secured and safe downloading your Windows update in Firefox.
FasterFox: Make your FF browsing turbocharged and see the difference.
Duplicate Tab: I don’t know how I’d live normally if I don’t have the duplicate tab.
Fuller Screen: It’s better in full screen if it is FullerScreen!
Ook Video: Downloading Youtube or streaming videos? Here’s your passport.
So there it goes. My advice? Don’t leave home without these add-ons.
