Here, I'll introduce a few addons / plugins, which for me are the best, for the Mozilla Firefox Web browser, because it is not always easy to find with descriptions in English and the multitude of addons!
I give you the top of my list of addons I use in addition to their functions and usefulness:
- Adblock more
- Adblock more: Element Hiding Helper
- Better Privacy
- OptimizeGoogle in lieu of CustomizeGoogle
- IE Tab Plus as a replacement for Ie tab
- Resurrect Pages
- Skip Screen
Very famous essential addon to block pubs… Why use it then that pubs are already stuck with the Hosts (see here) file? Because the Hosts file may not block all pubs, and Adblock Plus either! They are complementary to one another, although the Hosts will block already 9/10th of pubs… During installation, you will be asked to choose a subscription list, take the list "List FR (France) + Easy List", this will allow you to not see the pubs on the french and English websites. If you visit other sites, you can still adapt the addon has other lists available here. Attention still has not to subscribe to multiple lists with the same areas, ca will generate conflicts!
Complement has Adblock Plus, it allows you to hide certain elements on a Web page, for example an image which appears all the time (not have a pub). To access after you install it, click on the small arrow next to the logo of Adblock Plus (ABP) and click on "Select an item to hide", after choosing the element has hide, I advise you to check the "Preview" for being on that it blocks what you chose!
Better Privacy enhances your privacy by deleting cookies fairly little known but well existing and registrants your data when you use a Flash application. You should know that these cookies, known as LSO, are never deleted by your browser as other cookies, or CCleaner! Better Privacy remedie has this.
ColorFulTabs can automatically generate a color for each open tab. Very pratiquet and quite beautiful when you have multiple tabs open in Firefox.
Cooliris lets change the way to browse images, it shows you the images on a wall in 3D in Firefox! Pretty fine! But attention, still requires a good comp… (double hearts and a good map chart preferably!) Under my comp (Ixtrem 9040), sometimes I freeze with Cooliris.
- CustomizeGoogle (currently incompatible Firefox 3.6)
No description as long as it is not updated for Firefox 3.6.
optimize Google helps improve search engine via several comm functions add links to Yahoo or others, removes the ads from Google, allows to anonymize the research in order to preserve his life private and many other functions!
For the people who watch videos on the net, this small addon allows you to of the telcharger on your comp, when a link is not given! Many sites are supported! Very useful in my case ^ ^
Addon that lets you know or the server of the site that you visit by putting a flag near the site address, accessory by curiosity is located… Can give the location of the server and its Whois (who is: who is this?).
Blocks Flash objects (Flash objects are often used for animations) as well as Silverlight objects. Therefore provides both speed up browsing by not loading the Flash objects that are usually quite heavy and will not be bothered by unwanted animations (video and audio)! To activate the object Flash or Silverlight, nothing more easy, you can simply just click on it!
- IE tab (currently incompatible Firefox 3.6)
No description for the same reason as for CustomizeGoogle
IE Tab Plus allows you to view web pages in Firefox but with the engine of Internet Explorer! Very useful when the page is not compatible with Firefox! In the options, you can even use the IE engine with plugins Adblock Plus if it is installed!
Allows you to have multiple lines has your personal bar and choose how many lines you want. For example, me I use my personal bar for RSS feeds.
The image is not my Firefox, mine is really more beautiful: p but this image showed 4lignes while me I use "as" 2 ^^
Security addon, it took me some time to understand it and use it well… This addon blocks all scripts on all websites (domains and subdomains), you should know that there are good scripts and bad! And that virtually all sites use scripts! But it's hard to know if the script is good or bad if it is y know, I use it as follows: I fully authorize the sites I know and not even temporarily those I don't know, isn't a good way to use it, because even a good very famous site may be infected with a malicious script but in this way (by trusting the good sites), I limit the damage in the event of malicious scripts when my surfs.
Ressusciter allows a dead page by retrieving the page in the cache of Google, Yahoo, or other. Useful in cases or the site has just dropped (unable to access) and you want to search for information on the site in question.
For users of MegaUpload, Rapidshare, ect… It allows to wait in your place that counting takes place and will download the file you want.
Security addon. Allows to know the reputation of the visited site. The reputation is made by WOT users (those who put the notes like me). It shows you 4categories's reputation: credibility, commercial reliability, privacy and safety of minors. Very useful when your research and surfing, 1coups of eye allows you to see whether the site is good or bad.
- Green: good
- Orange: medium
- Red: Very bad.
If the site is bad reputation, you will have a display as well:
But the site is not blocked, this is just a warning!
Voila, if other addons will accompany me in the future, I you make part ;-)
