The other day I was in conversation with someone who'd just discovered that Firefox extensions existed. After he'd got over the initial excitement of what this meant in terms of flexibility and improved efficiency, he asked me a question that I don't think I've been asked before:
Which Firefox add-ons should I install?
Oddly enough, this is a question that I don't think I've been asked before (or at least, if I have been asked it, it didn't stick). I use Firefox and I have a few add-ons installed but I wouldn't call any of them essential.
OK, so I might not know the answer to this, I certainly don't have a list that I can rattle off, but I know a bunch of people that will give me loads of feedback! :-)
Here's my (short) list:
Block malicious scripts
- SEO for Firefox
Add loads of different search engine optimization data points into Google's search engine results pages
- Web Developer
Has an assortment of web developer tools
Color picker displays
- Measure it
Ruler for measuring elements in the browser
If we can get a good list here, I'll condense it down into a usable list and then post it both here and over on my PC Doctor blog.
What's your favorite Firefox extensions? How does this help you get more out of your PC? Do you have different extensions for Firefox on the desktop and notebook or do you use the same ones both at your desk and when on the move?
