If you’re not using Firefox browser yet you’re not going to understand why I’m giddy about something called extensions. Since Firefox is an open source software anyone smart enough to write a way to extend it’s functionality can make my browsing experience better. Now, like a lot of things that can be done, you have to wade through what should be done and used to make your browsing experience better.
Here are my top 5 browser extensions in no particular order
- del.icio.us bookmark – lets me copy some text on any page and post it to my delicious account
- SEO for Firefox – Aaron Wall’s treasure chest of info on search results
- Fleck – This one allows you to make notes and lists on web pages and then send the annotated page
- Search Status – simply tool that sits in my dock on the browser and gives me page rank, alexa ranking, backward links and indexed pages for any site on visit on the fly
- Roboform – fills in forms and keeps track of passwords and the like
And a bonus one that’s kind of funny – BugMeNot – allows you to skip putting your info in to get an article on sites like the New York Times
So, any Firefox users out there want to share a few!
