    The more unique, unknown and specialized the better

    WOT or webs of trust...

    Thank you - do you find that the add on is much different then the built in protection already provided by firefox/google?

    Google
    Stumbleupon 
    Digg
    Deviant art
    AdBlocker

    And China Channel - If you've never heard of china channel then you should get it, even if its just for the comical value. If you activate it, it tricks your IP to be a China one so you can access the net like the Chinese. I find it handy to see if any of my articles or websites are blocked in China.

    If anyone downloads it, go to google images and search for "Tiananmen square"

    I'm glad I live in the West...

    Shareaholic and socialize it are toolbars that will combine ALL the social bookmarking sites into one toolbar,

    I use adblocker on my research profile, but for my main default i dont get the luxury because Ads are part of my day to day income sources

    China channel sounds like a fun experiment, im on my way to find it now

    I wrote a hub on my favorite Firefox extensions here but my favorite one since writing that hub is definitely Greasemonkey scripts.  I have it for adding site mirrors to Digg articles (as they're forever getting overloaded)

    Other than that I like adding new themes to firefox, like Chromifox tongue

      Yeah, im def a greasemonkey addict - i have youtube video extender, an html gmail signature, a text area save (any box i write in gets a back up) and a google account multi log in- and i love trying out new ones

      ill have to check out the digg mirrors - i never change my theme though im compact classic guy -as minimal as it gets

    Multi Google Accounts? sounds interesting, will have to check that out, just like how I need to look into the new multiple inboxes support.

    The text box save thing sounds useful too, I love skinning/themeing my apps, then again I'm the guy who bought WindowBlinds so that I could dress XP up like OSX 10 big_smile

    Not really unique or unknown, but FireBug is one of my favorite extensions. It allows you to explore the HTML on web pages, by simply selecting the elements and is a great tool. It even can be used to debug Javascript.

    The couple of add-ons that I like are:

    Firebug
    Stumble
    Youtube downloader

    I use the youtube downloader more then anything.  Sometimes I might download a dozen videos in one evening.

    Anyone use a firefox plugin that shows which links are dofollow vs. nofollow?

    1. sunforged profile image75
      sunforgedposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      seoquake does that


      it does just about anything you can imagine

      unfortunately, it does seem to slow down my browsing in general though

      so i created a new profile that I use seoquake in only (i suggest trying that)

      so does this one

      http://tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html

      it makes all nofollows red!

      I prefer seoquake, but the second add on wont slow your browser down

        Perfect, thanks! Yeah I didn't want one to tie down firefox since I have a few others on here already.

    A little plug in call Adblock plus. It's block all the annoying ads and let you surf more freely.

    Try out LinkExtend.
    I love it.

    I love Google notebook but now Google is not supporting it anymore sad But I'm still using it.

    I like my Triond and StumbleUpon toolbars. I also like Twitterfox.

    AdBlock plus is a good one but I tend not to use it these days since I like to check out what ads are on my hubs.

    Coolris is a great way to look at images from webpages.

    Linky, which opens every link on a page or selected links.

    I'm also trying Hyperwords which allows you to look up the meaning of any word you come across, or translate it, or even find a related video on YouTube...and many other things. I'm finding it a little annoying when I'm writing hubs because it pops up every time I highlight a word that I want to fix.

    My favorite add-on is coolpreviews which lets you preview a page on mouseover

    and my favorite extension is Tree Style Tab which puts the tabs down the side of the browser. This lets you see all the tabs that you need to keep open. Very handy.
