Firefox add-ons

Firefox add-ons

I was reflecting on the inherent awesomeness of Firefox and its obvious superiority to the other browsers, when I realised that a very useful feature is that it is so easy to download and install plugins and that there are so many available. So on to the main point, here are my favourite three plugins:

  • Foxyproxy, pretty much the ultimate proxy plugin allowing to enable/disable your proxy very easily. Its also very easy to install new proxies and you can even use more than one proxy at a time.
  • Tineye image search, a very handy feature for finding higher res versions of an image or even tracking down people who have posted an image. The goggle of the image world.
  • User agent switcher, easily switch between useragents. You can make it look like your using IE on windows NT to safari on a mac, with just a couple of clicks.
If you're on firefox i suggest you go download these immediately. If you're not on firefox, well, why the hell aren't you?

  6. Firefox is cool if you're doing anything that requires intense concentration, but I like chrome for more casual things like checking email.
