No this is not a list of “THE BEST EVER” extensions … I am so sick of those. I am just going to list the ones I use and never set up a PC without. After trying several I have come to be comfortable with the following list.
|Adblock Plus||Gets rid of annoying ads|
|Adblock Filterset.G Updater||Synchronizes Adblock with Filterset.G|
|CustomizeGoogle||Remove ads, Google tracking and much more!|
|Foxmarks||Synchronize bookmarks between machines|
|Greasemonkey||User Script Manager|
|IE Tab||Use embedded IE engine within Firefox|
|MinimizeToTray||Keeps Firefox running in memory, in taskbar|
|No Squint||Increases small text on websites and keeps the settings|
|StumbleUpon Toolbar||Self Explanatory – I customize to use as little space possible|
Of course I am always trying new ones as they come out and if I ever get time would like to create my own.
How about everyone else? What are some of your favorite extensions and why? I look forward to your feedback.
