5 Cool Firefox Add Ons

September 21, 2008 by  

1. Cooliris

Coolirish allows you to browse the latest news in multimedia format, kind of like an iphone scrolling / carousal thing. You can search youtube for videos, play them through Cooliris’ funky interface and then go directly to the website. If you have some time to kill or you just like cool stuff, this add on is for you ;-) There’s even a demo here.

2. Colorful Tabs

Tabbed browsing is nothing new but it can sometimes be hard to differentiate between all the tabs you have open as they are all the same color and look the same from a distance. Well, thanks to Colorful Tabs, all of you tabs will now have their own unique color. A very cool add on indeed.

3. Fast Dial

Fast Dial is a bookmark add on which acts as a ‘speed dial’ on Firefox. As the name might suggest, you can add you favourite sites to Fast Dial and it’ll save them for you along with a url and a thumbnail. To access your Fast Dial sites, you click a little icon on your toolbar and all of your Fast Dial sites will appear. A much better and cooler way of bookmarking ;-)

4. Firebug

Did you ever want to edit html and CSS live on a site and see what difference it makes to the appearance? For example, did you ever want to know what a black background looks like on google? Well with firebug, you can do all of that and more. It is the ultimate designer / devlopers tool and a MUST HAVE add on for designers, developers and code monkeys.

5. Video DownloaderHelper

Ever wanted to download videos from youtube or metacafe or any streaming video sites? Sure you have. This nifty little add on allows you to do that with the click of a button. You can also convert between formats and even download pictures if you want from any site. Ingenius :-)

    I recommend my life saver: Select-n-Go by Cleeki:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7750

    Firefox’s enhanced alternative to IE8 Accelerator (Activities). Select any text on your screen, and you can preview search results immediately in the same page. Support Google (text, image, …), YouTube, Maps, Amazon, etc. and you can manage/add your own channels.
