The Top 10 Firefox Addons

May 29, 2007

Firefox is great and there is also some amazing add ons that go with it. In no particular order the top 10 Addons. All can be downloaded here. To install just drag the file onto Firefox.

1) Download Status Bar

This Addon is one of the best because it offers ease of use when downloading files. With custom functionality it is a lot better than FireFox's built in down loader.

2) Add Block PlusThis extension is one of the best for Firefox, gives the ability to block any URL. A must have if you find adverts annoying.

3) FoxMarks

This program is some what unique as it automatically (and securely) uploads you bookmarks, which can be retrieved and used on other computers.

4) Firebug

Don't you find it annoying when you click a button and nothing happens, are a page loads incorrectly. This extension can help. It shows HTML, javascript and other errors when surfing the web. Useful to have when things go wrong.

5) Adsense Preview
Do you have Google Adsense Disorder (GAD) where you have to check your Adsense earning every 10 seconds. This extension is for you. It has the ability to automatically check how much you have earned. A very useful tool.

6) Screen Grab!
This add on gives the ability to take a image of a website, much better than a Print Screen job, you would normally have to do.

7) Grease Monkey
One of the best extensions and should be included with every release of Firefox. Gives the user scripting ability to change the why a web page works to suit you needs.

8) Tab Effect

More of a cool widget thing that improving functionality, gives cool tab transitions.

9) Colour Full Tabs

Again another extension that offers the more colour and life into Firefox. I love it.

10) Mouse Gestures

A useful extension that enables you to do mouse gestures (Duh) to do particular commands, back forward to name a few.

Hi James:

I thought you might be interested in PicLens, our brand new Firefox add-on, currently available at (and soon on Mozilla).

PicLens for Firefox instantly transforms your browser into an immersive, interactive slideshow experience for viewing photos on the web. With just one click, PicLens makes mundane thumbnail images come to life via a full-screen presentation that actually goes beyond the confines of traditional browser window.

We'd be thrilled if you'd try out PicLens, and let us know what you think.

Kind regards,
