Firefox Extensions

Part Firefox-whoring, part save my ass in the event of a cataclysmic hard drive crash. Here's a list of Firefox extensions I'm currently using.

I won't bother to add links because:

A. I'm lazy.
B. If you can't figure out how to Google it, you're better off without extensions.

  • Foxmarks: backs up and synchronizes bookmarks across machines.
  • Flashblock: blocks flash. Or does it flash blocks?
  • Adblock Plus: is it a good idea to mention this on an ad-supported blog? Probably not.
  • Beagle Indexer: indexes visited pages using Beagle Search.
  • CustomizeGoogle: enhances Google and its search results.
  • Fast Dial: visual bookmarking. May be rendered obsolete in Firefox 3.1
  • Screen Grab!: saves an entire web-page as an image.
  • StumbleUpon: social bookmarking
  • Tab Kit: tab grouping, multi-rows, tree view, etc.
  • Torbutton: Anonymizes connection using Tor.
  • RefControl: spoof http referrers.

The list will probably be edited from time to time with no warning.
