Nowadays the browser extensions shape our browsing experience. Here is a list of extensions I use in Mozilla Firefox.
I have also made public the list of my favorite addons on the Mozilla website.
- Firebug – The best thing for web development, irreplaceable really.
- Feedly – My favorite RSS reader and sharing toolbox. If you don’t use it, give it a go – I am still amazed.
- Readability – Convert the page to a more readable format and save to read later (on other devices as well). Good stuff.
- Firegestures – Execute browser commands using mouse gestures for faster browsing.
- AdBlock Plus – No annoying banners and ads, just content.
- Awesome Screenshot – Capture and Annotate – The name pretty much explains it all.
- HTML Validator – Run HTML / XHTML validation in the browser.
- Firecookie – Nice extension to Firebug dealing with cookies.
- YSlow – Firebug extension by Yahoo team with page loading performance analysis.
- ColorZilla – Color picker, palette generator etc.
- IE View – Just one click to view the same URL in IE.
Some extensions have become obsolete or I have started using another instead, but that doesn’t mean they are not awesome anymore. :)
- Ubiquity – Task-centric web browsing, awesome stuff, too bad that it’s not in development anymore.
- XMarks – Bookmarks synchronization – not required anymore if you use only Firefox, but can synch across browsers.
- Screengrab! – Save the page as image.
