I do this every once in a while because the list of my favorite extensions tends to change over time. Here are the ones I currently use:
- Adblock – hands down, the best extension ever invented in the universe. If you are not using it you deserve the shitty online experience. Side note – I whitelist the blogs that I read and comment on regularly – unless their banners are intrusive.
- Gmail Manager – if you have a Gmail account or two, this is definitely an extension for you.
- Adsense Notifier – I like to know how much monies I earn through my Adsense. I can tell you it’s not much, but I like to see the amount I have earned in my statusbar.
- Linkification – it converts all url’s on the page into clickable links. This is especially useful when browsing various bulletin boards where people can’t figure out if HTML or bbcodes are enabled…
- Cute Menus – This is a totally eye-candy extension which puts little icons next to different menu options. It beautifies both the application menus and the context menu. I like it because it makes the browser more fluid and intuitive – most of the icons are meaningful and do a great job of singling out important items that you might be looking for.
What is your top 5? And if you don’t use Firefox, what is your browser’s killer-functionality that makes it better than Firefox?
