A few weeks ago, my hard drive on my MacBook crashed, so I have been going through and re-installing all of the firefox plugins that I had, plus a few others I found in the process. It has actually been kind of enjoyable using this as an opportunity to re-think some of the browser plug-ins that I use.
Type Measuring for Firefox
Synchronizes your bookmarks between two or more computers running Firefox. Includes a feature to access your bookmarks from any computer.
Helping Firefox to look a little better than it does out of the box.
This is by far, one of my favorite plug-ins that I use. I originally came across it in this article by John Markoff, and now I can’t live without it. I use this daily to browse images both on Flickr and Google
Web Developer Tool Bar
I used to use this more than I do currently. Firebug now handles most of the features I need on a daily basis. However, I like that I can specify that I can Disable Cache on each load of a page (which I always have set) and that i can turn styles off on any given site. It is still a must have.
Adds a customizable grid overlay to any web page. The nice part about this grid solution is that it doesnt rely on code in the web page to function. The only downfall is that it is not easily activated through a key command.
I am going to give this a try fairly soon. There are far too many links and posts that I could bang out, and most of the time I would like to not have to login to WordPress to do it. I think this might be my answer.
Sxipper accurately fills in forms, manages passwords and your OpenIDs.
HttpFox monitors and analyzes all incoming and outgoing HTTP traffic between the browser and the web servers.
iMacros for Firefox
There has to be repetitive tasks that I do from time to time where this would come in handy – still havent had a chance to try this out.
