Most useful Addons for Firefox 3

Filed in TechSpot , Tutorials 4 comments

Addons for Firefox has a great deal of awesomeness (don’t sue me for this, Panda) among them. There are thousands of addons that you can add to the application, based upon the desire and purpose. There are media players, bookmark managers, cookie managers, session savers, enhanced color charters, weather view and all sorts of stuff.


Here a few addons which i think will be really beneficial for that ‘boost’ in your browsing and time-keeping experience.

Tab Mix Plus
This tool gives enhanced control over your tabs. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, giving tabs different colors, active and dormant looks, enhanced tab control, undo closed tabs and windows. It also includes a full-featured session manager.

Sessions Manager
If you dont want to install Tab Mix Plus, you can go for this one. This helps in saving complete sessions so that you can open them up at a different time and whenever you want. I use this a lot, because whenever i am browsing, i will have 3-4 Firefoxes open with 25-30 tabs open in each. Crazy as it may sound like, but this helps a lot. Also because, if i need to take a break and need to shut down my pc, with those many Firefoxes open, we can’t see the possibility of it saving that many tabs for later. You also have the possibility of reopening accidentally closed tabs and windows, which are arranged by date.

This is one of the best download managers i have seen for Firefox. And say what, it works splendidly. It accelerates downloads, controls multiple of them at the same time, resumes downloads and so on.

Recently, I found out this neat little tool (some 28 kB) some days back, that acts more like a theme layer for Firefox. I guess its still under work but you can use it. With this, you won’t have to download seperate themes everytime for every mood you pass through. Download, install and click on the bottom left corner of the Firefox browser, a Fox’s head (no animals have been hurt :P) to get a  pop-up menu, select the genre that suits you, and finally, click on one to load a theme. Thing is, you might need an internet connection for this to get working the first time around. There are so many to try out that, if you are like me, you did try out each and every one. It loads pretty quickly too. So give it a try, its worth it!

These are addons of my interest. If you got any, please do suggest, and if i find it interesting, i will update it to the post. 🙂

I wouldnt say Personas is a useful one. It’s more like a visual add-on rather than practical.

Check out:
Tab Kit – blessing for wide-screens, it turns the horizontal tab bar into a vertical one (that can also auto-hide) and color-codes and groups them. Now having 30+ tabs open isn’t a headache at all!

Screengrab – screenshot tool right in your browser! You can copy to clipboard or save direct to file. Choice: Grab the screen, just an area you can mark, or, the WHOLE PAGE (however long it is!!) into one single image!

Firefox Throttle – place a speed limit on bandwidth usage (browsing and downloading) – so your youtube session doesn’t retard the net speed for others sharing your net connection. Also, keeps a count of MB’s, very useful if you have a limited net connection.

Flashblock – replace all flash with a Play button – see it only when you want to! Ideal for conserving bandwidth!

Adblock Plus – Live a web life free of all annoying, intrusive ads! If everyone had this, the www would totally cease its profits!

CoolIris – Browse image and video galleries on a 3D wall – you have to see this one to believe it!

Flashgot – Integrate with any download manager!

DownnloadHelper – Download ANY streaming video or mp3 from ANY site! If you can cache it, you can download it!

Nuke Anything Enhanced – Remove anything on a web page while keeping everything else intact.

Auto Shutdown – set the computer to shut down as soon as downloads complete

..and many more…
