Useful Firefox Extensions

| 2 Comments | 1 TrackBack

One of the better reasons for using Firefox are it's extensions. Currently I am using the following:


  • Web Developer
    Very handy toolbar that gives a lot of essential functions for anyone who does ANY work with html.

  • HostIP.info
    Pointless really unless you are like useless info. Has already turned up some interesting facts :)

  • User Agent Switcher
    Another good extension which is good at turning up interesting ways of getting into sites!

  • Flashblock
    I tend to dislike useless flash ads, so anything that kills them while leaving the option of clicking on flash games for a bit of distraction is always going to be handy.

  • ShowIp
    With the work I do on a day to day basis, it is very handy to know what IP address you're looking at when you view a site. This simple extension displays the IP of the site in the status bar and offers shortcuts to online DNS utilities if you click on the IP.

  • Switch Proxy
    My laptop is thrown onto lots of different networks, often with different proxies. This extension gives me a nice drop down menu with a list of proxies and can be a nice time saver.


Is there any other handy extensions floating around the net? I don't want to totally bog down Firefox, but things that make life easier are always welcome.

The Netcraft toolbar is quite handy for finding IP addresses and all that lark..

Cormac,

Didn't realise that they had one available. Will have to try it out.
