Top 5 best Firefox extensions
The PCs at APC are so clogged with plug-ins and add-ons that the system tray often resembles a bowl of jelly beans being attacked with a stun gun. But even on a plain vanilla XP install, here are five Firefox extensions that you absolutely must not be without.
I clog my PCs with so many plug-ins and add-ons that the system tray often resembles a bowl of jelly beans being attacked with a stun gun. I have no mercy on Firefox either when it comes to extensions. Here is my current top 5 extensions that every Firefox install shouldn't live without:
- Fasterfox (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1269/)
This nifty little nugget comes with a bunch of handy tweaks and settings to make Firefox run a lot faster and smoother.
- IE Tab (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/)
No matter how much we kick and scream, some sites will not work properly in Firefox. That's where this handy little extension comes in handy, so you don't even have to leave Firefox.
- PDF Download (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/636/)
Nothing breaks a good flowing surfing session than the clunky load-time of Adobe Reader. This extension first asks you if you want to save the PDF, before it attempts to pry it open.
- Tab Mix Plus (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1122/)
One of the main reasons I got into Firefox in the beginning was its tabbed browsing. This extension takes tabs even further.
- FlashGot (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/220/)
If you use an external download manager like me, chances are you'll need this extension to make it work properly with Firefox.
I'm always keen to find out how I can take my surfing experience further, so why not post your top 5 below and let me know.
