Firefox Addons This Year
With this post in mind, here's a list of addons I use this year. Some of them are the same, some of them aren't, but overall it's probably easy to see that this years list is noticeably shorter than the previous. Why? Some of the plugins on the list of plugins I really needed weren't really needed after all. This I realized after reinstalling Windows, and, after upgrading to Firefox 4 (in which some of the features of the plugins are now pre-built). Anyhow, here's the list...
- ANT Video Downloader
- Mail Notifier
- Morning Coffee
- United States English Spellchecker
Saves a selection or entire page as a PNG. I still need this one!
I ran another YouTube Video Downloader (that might be the name) last year, but it didn't always work. Or maybe it wasn't supported by the latest FF version? IDK, but now I run this instead. It's a plugin that allows you to download videos not only from YT but from all kinds of video sites. Pretty useful, though I do realize I rarely use it anyway...
A plugin that lets you add small pieces of JS to different pages that change the way things look, or add new features to existing websites. It's a framework I'm not using very much, but am still keeping cause it seems useful.
Shows a little email icon in the taskbar along with the number of undread messages on a set number of accounts. You just click the icon to get to the accounts with unread mail. Pretty useful!
A plugin that lets you specify a number of links that open up every morning (first time every day) that you open the browser. I still have it installed, but lately I've been starting to use a .BAT file to open all the links I need to open when I need them, IOW not every day. I think I'll remove this now...
Get's rid of waiting screens for common file hosts. Useful!
Spellcheck. In English. Duh. :P It's new in my list of plugins but I still thing I've had it before, maybe it was included as a plugin earlier? That might be it...
So that's it for the right now. Not much new, but a lot less old. :)
