Firefox Extensions

Postby bigh0rt » Wed Jan 05, 2011 10:00 pm

So I just got a new laptop and installed Firefox, and after installing some of the basic extensions, I was figuring the Cafe is a good community to turn to to get some potentially valuable info. What ones, if any, do you use? Not necessarily like Bwanna's sweet Greasemonkey Scripts for Fantasy Baseball purposes, but for general browsing/ease use for the internet. Something as simple as one I have that auto-loads my Homepage when I open a new tab; stuff like that.

So, what do you use?

Try Chrome out too, I finally switched because they now have all the extensions I need.

Some other ones for Firefox:

Gestures (I think that's what it's called): Mouse gestures to control different things.
Sage: Awesome for RSS pulls up on the side of your browser instead of having to go to a separate page.
Down Them All: Good for getting all mp3 or video links on a page.

I have a few for development (Firebug, WebDeveloper, ElasticFox), as well as Greasemonkey. Other than that, I don't use too many Firefox add-ons. I have AdBlock, FlashGot (audio/video link file downloader), and Foxytunes as in-browser control for music players open on my computer (usually Winamp or iTunes). I also have CoolIris, which is a video aggregator with a very pretty user interface, but past all the bells and whistles, I find it to be quite useless.

I use Firebug everyday at work, I know not everyone needs it, but it's the most complete add-on for Firefox in my opinion. If you are dealing with "tracking" httpfox is good, better than Fiddler, imo.

You know any good tools to test Omniture?

I haven't used this, but I've heard WASP (Web Analytics Solution Profiler) is a good one.

Yeah, I mentioned that to the powers that be a few weeks back in a meeting. I played with the free version, but it's very stripped so it wasn't a good indicator of the software. If it says what it can, I think it could save me a lot of time. Right now I'm using httpfox for omniture, which works, but it's a tedious task.
