I’ve been using FireFox as my main browser now for about 9 months (maybe a little more) and have become a true convert from IE. Since there is much more expandability on the FF side, I’ve really started depending on a select group of plug-ins. This expandability that was never available in IE, has allowed my browser to take on new functionality that I never dreamed could be possible. So here is a list of my current FF plug-ins.
- FireFTP – FireFTP is a free, secure, cross-platform FTP client for Mozilla Firefox.
- del.icio.us (classic version) – Keep, share and discover all your favorite things.
- ClipMarks – With Clipmarks, you can clip the best parts of web pages.
- GUtil – GoogleÂ® Utilities in your Firefox Menu and Toolbar
- Cooliris – Cooliris Previews 2.1 for Firefox gives you the power to browse faster and send links instantly.
- Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer – Install Foxmarks on each computer, and it will work silently in the background to keep your bookmarks synchronized.
- Blog This for Firefox – The Blog This for Firefox adds a button to Firefox which starts a new Windows Live Writer blog post.
- Google Notebook – GNotebook allows you to clip & collect information in private & shared notebooks.
So there you have it – the mainstays of my FF add-ons. The one other really powerful tool in FF for me is the bookmark toolbar. I wish there was a way to make a second toolbar for bookmarks as I have trimmed each entry down to one or two letters with the “favicon” for the site.
Do you have any great FF add-in suggestions? There are thousands out there and I know I’ve only scratched the surface.
