I have decided to that it’s that time again to write about what I use in a browser. Since a lot of things have changed since I’ve last talked about my favorite browser Firefox
Here is a list of the firefox add-ons i use. Most of theses can be found using the search window in the add-ons tab in the browser itself.
Delicious Bookmarks #
The Delicious Bookmarks Add-on enhances your existing Firefox bookmarking system with a new set of tools to help you create, manage and search your bookmarks.
FoxyProxy is a free, open-source advanced proxy management tool that completely replaces Firefox’s limited proxying capabilities.
FoxyProxy automatically switches an internet connection across one or more proxy servers based on URL patterns. Put simply, FoxyProxy automates the manual process of editing Firefox’s Connection Settings dialog. Proxy server switching occurs based on the loading URL and the switching rules you define. Animated icons show you when a proxy is in use. Advanced logging shows you which proxies were used and when. QuickAdd makes it a snap to create new URL patterns on-the-fly. FoxyProxy is fully compatible with Portable Firefox, has better support for PAC files than Firefox itself, and is translated into more than 25 languages.
Google Gears #
Gears is an open source project that enables more powerful web applications, by adding new features to your web browser:
- Let web applications interact naturally with your desktop
- Store data locally in a fully-searchable database
Greek Spelling Dictionary
I think the name says it all. It can be found at the Firefox Add-ons directory.
Html Validator #
HTML Validator is a Mozilla extension that adds HTML validation inside Firefox and Mozilla. The number of errors of a HTML page is seen on the form of an icon in the status bar when browsing. The details of the errors are seen when looking the HTML source of the page.
The extension is based on Tidy and OpenSP. Both algorithms were originally developed by the Web Consortium W3C. And now extended and improved by a lot of persons. Both algorithms are embedded inside Mozilla/Firefox and makes the validation locally on your machine, without sending HTML to a third party server.
Modify Headers #
This extensions allows the user to Add, Modify and Filter out HTTP request headers.
Server Switcher #
Server Switcher is an extension (plugin) I made for the Firefox Web Browser. If you are a web-developer and using Firefox, this extension might be useful. It allows you to easily switch between sites on your development and live servers, so that you can immediately see the differences.
SQL Inject Me
An extension to test for SQL injection vulnerabilities. Can be found form the Firefox Add-ons directory.

Tab Catalog #
This shows contents of all of tabs as a thumbnail-style list.
Tab Preview #
Tab Preview is an extension for Firefox 1.5 or newer that shows a preview of tab contents when you move your mouse over a background tab. It’s simple to use, but surprisingly useful.
View Cookies #
Some websites store cookies on your computer, so these sites can remember you. This can be very handy, but it can also be used to track everything you do on that website.
After installing View Cookies, you will find a new Cookies-tab in the Page Info dialog box. You can open the Page Info dialog box by selecting Page Info in the Tools menu.
Web Developer #
Web Developer screenshot The Web Developer extension adds a menu and a toolbar to the browser with various web developer tools. It is designed for Firefox, Flock and Seamonkey, and will run on any platform that these browsers support including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Which browser do you use and why? And if it supports add-ons which ones do you have installed.
