TweetThis! "wow" weblinks - Firefox Addons [updated August 2009]

Firefox is the best web browser that I have been using since I came to know it in 2005. There is no way I see myself surfing the web without FF. If I come across a page that opens exclusively on IE,  there is and IE addon that will do the job for me inside FF. Here is a list of coolest Firefox Extensions, some of which I am using:

  • Lazarus -  is a free add-on for the Firefox browser which makes backups of the data you've entered into web forms. It then stores this data so you can easily recover it if you need to re-enter it for some reason. Many of us have had the experience of spending ages entering data into a long form, only to see it vanish when an error occurs after we try to submit it. With Lazarus, this need never happen again!
  • Adblock - Right-click on a banner and choose "Adblock" from the context menu - the banner won't be downloaded again.
  • All-in-One-Sidebar - quickly switch between sidebar panels, view dialog windows such as downloads, extensions, YP and more in the sidebar, or view source or websites in the sidebar.
  • Bookmark Duplicate Detector - It helps you to find and delete duplicates URL already in your Bookmarks.
  • buySAFE Shopping Advisor - a free tool that makes online shopping safer and more secure. Shopping Advisor provides exclusive access to the Safe Shopping Portal where purchases are automatically protected with a bond guarantee of up to $25,000 as well as identity theft insurance – for free. Shopping Advisor also provides Safe Shopping Ratings on more than 320,000 eCommerce sites in the search results of Google, Yahoo, MSN, and eBay.
  • CustomizeGoogle - It enhances Google search results by adding extra information (like links to Yahoo, Ask.com, MSN etc) and removing unwanted information (like ads and spam).
  • Define - Highlight a word then right click on it and choose 'define' to get a definition of it.
  • Delicious Bookmarks - It integrates your bookmarks and tags with Firefox and keeps them in sync for easy, convenient access.
  • Download StatusbarView and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar - without the download window getting in the way of your web browsing.
  • Fast Dial or Speed Dial - Gives you a Direct access to your most visited websites. Choose which site to put on the provided boxes. I have tried both and I prefer Fast Dial.
  • FireShot - Works like the tab on your keyboard with the "Print Screen SysRq" and beyond. It creates screenshots of web pages and provide a set of editing and annotation tools, which let users quickly modify web captures and insert text annotations and graphical annotations. Such functionality will be especially useful for web designers, testers and content reviewers. It's possible to choose whether you want to capture entire web page or take screenshot of only visible part of the web page. The captures can be: - uploaded to FREE public screenshot hosting - saved to disk (PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP) - printed - copied to clipboard - e-mailed - sent to configurable external editor for further processing.
  • FootieFox - Soccer scores for over 200 leagues and cups of 60 countries - live and almost instantly.
  • FoxClocks - Keep an eye on the time around the world - or just your local time - by putting small clocks in your statusbar.
  • FoxTab - brings innovative and attractive 3D tab management to Firefox.
    With its 5 fascinating eye candy layouts, FoxTab takes the tabbed-browsing experience to a new level.

  • GmailChecker - Notifies new messages of your Gmail and Google Apps account.
  • Gmail Space - 
  • gTalkSidebar - Can't use gmail? Don't have time to install Gtalk? Want a simple solution? Then try using gTalk from your sidebar!
  • IE - easily see a web page displayed in IE with just one click. This extension is very useful if you have more than one email address and you would like to see all the two inboxes at the same time. Just use FF for one account and then IE for the other account.
  • McAfee SiteAdvisor -
  • Menu EditorMcAfee SiteAdvisor helps protect you from all kinds of Web-based security threats including spyware, adware, spam, viruses, browser exploits, phishing, online fraud and identity theft. Our automated testers continually patrol the Web to browse sites, download files, and sign-up for things with e-mail addresses. As you search, browse, download or register online, SiteAdvisor's safety ratings help you stay safe and in control.
  • MR Tech Toolkit(Formerly Local Install) The primary goal of this extension is to provide the tools needed to install and manage extensions and themes locally and tons of other features.

You may now even drag local files from hard drive into playlist and watch them! Thank you for 400,000+ downloads! YouPlayer is another reason to love Firefox :)
