10 Useful Firefox Extensions That Don’t Get Glamorised

4 01 2007


You’ve probably never heard of most of the extensions below as they don’t feature in the top 50 plugins on the Firefox Add-ons site, but it doesn’t make them any less useful.

  1. Colorful Tabs – May sound really boring, but this extension makes it a hell of a lot easier to distinguish between multiple tabs
  2. Google Reader Notifier – will popup “unread” Google Reader items from the statusbar, so you can keep on top of your feeds before you end up with more unread items than are manageable in one session
  3. FaviconizeTab – This extension adds a new “FaviconizeTab” option to the context menu of the tab. When it is clicked, The width of the tab becomes small up to the size of favicon. Great if you keep a lot of tabs open like me
  4. WebmailCompose Fantastic extension that opens your chosen webmail compose window if any email addresses are clicked on
  5. Add Bookmark Here – Allows you to add bookmarks to any folder in the bookmarks menu like in Opera. Makes adding bookmarks to Firefox so much easier
  6. Optimoz Tweaks – If you a heavy user of sidebars this great extension makes it easier to open and close them. Use this link rather than the one on Firefix Addons, as this version is compatible with FF 2.0
  7. Google Browser Sync – The only bookmarks sync tool I’ve found that works seamlessly between PCs. Much better than Foxmarks in my view. If you’re outside of the US just use a proxy site to get the plugin
  8. ColorZilla – With ColorZilla you can get a colour reading from any point in your browser, quickly adjust this color and paste it into another program. It’s great for when you see a colour on another website which you want to use, or for tweaking your own template
  9. Autohide – This one isn’t promoted heavily, but if you like browsing full-screen it gives some useful control over what elements Firefox displays
  10. VideoDownloader – Download videos from Youtube, Google, Metacafe, iFilm, Dailymotion, Pornotube… and other 60+ video sites!
