good topic as i use a bunch and sometimes on the look out for something new for browsing on firefox...
i'll break em down categories wise...
- ad block plus and ad block plus pop up blocker addon: to kill any ads and popups
things that simply things that can already be done with the browser:
- big new tab button: makes entire tabs button not in use, clickable to open a new tab
- clear history: adds a clear history function to the right click menu
- cookie manager button: clicks and opens up what all cookies are on firefox, and can delete which you want gone
- empty cache button: empties cache with 1 click
- febe: backs up firefox data
- linkification: turns all text links into clickable ones
- open image in new tab: to be able to view an image in a new tab
- remove cookies from site: when clicked, any website you are on will have its cookies removed
- toggle cookies: sometimes you want the browser to not accept any cookies, or not accept 3rd party cookies. this will help with that
- dont trackme: keeps certain tracking things away
- ghostery: does the same
- WOT (web of trust): shows what might be a questionable security webpage you may want to avoid
- avast online security: similar to WOT
- betterprivacy: similar to donttrack and ghostery, but on specialized tracking cookies
- bitdefender: malware scanner from firefox
ease of use:
- fastest fox: adds performance tweaks
- speed dial: puts certain webpages you want when click new tab
- fasterfox: adds numerous things, auto next page scroll, highlighted text copied for paste if need be, anything highlighted can then be check in search things like google, google translate, youtube, imdb, google maps, and other things, adds a dictionary definition to some things and quick reference to others...and probably does more.
