Thread: Firefox Extensions - which are the most useful ?

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    I am a keen FF user.

    Which are the extensions you use that you think would appeal to most users ?

    Eg I use a Chinese character one which of course would not qualify as above.

    So please give us your suggestions for your top 2 or 3

    Regards

    Well, I think it really depends on what your needs and expectations are of a web browser.

    Go to the firefox site and browse through their extensions, reading the descriptions. If it sounds like you need it, install it.

    One really good extension I would recommend to everyone is adblock, the purpose of which is self-explanatory.

    A word to the wise though, don't install everything you come across, because each extension adds a little to the firefox footprint (which is already pretty big) and if you install a crapload of extensions firefox will quickly turn into a RAM munching behemoth.

    adblock for sure with the filterset.g (search on google) filter list.
    for gmail users the gmail notifier is great too.
    Cutemenus is also neat as it adds icons next to menu items, but doesn't really add anything useful

    If you're using a firefox version lower than 2 and like to use tabs then tabmix plus is good to have for configuring how tabs work.

    Don't think you need a spellchecker anymore as 2.0.0.1 has it built in . Adblock is a must tho as Ross suggested . Sorry as spankmiester suggested . Word to the wise tho if you have FF setup how you like it don't upgrade willy nilly as some of your fav. extensions may not work .

    IE View for pages that don't work right in IE

    I have the Video Downloader extension, too.
