Firefox Extensions: Picks of the Week 07-11-05

I have found a few great extensions in the last couple of weeks and here they are. For those new here, I d o a periodical ‘Picks of the Week’ post listing some great extensions that I come across. Some of the best ones, make it to my more extensive ‘Top Firefox Extensions‘ list. Now, that I am done with my usual plug, we can move to the extensions.

  • More Tools Menu: Tired of the clutter in your Tools menu because of all the extensions options? With More Tools Menu, you can eliminate this clutter into a separate menu ‘More Tools’ separating all the other extension options. Or you could use an extension like ‘Menu Editor‘ to totally customize your menu options. [via Techie Buzz]
  • YouPlayer: YouPlayer adds a sidebar to your Firefox where you can drag and drop YouTube URLs to your sidebar to create a playlist to watch them when you have done collecting. As Ryan mentions, this is extremely useful when you are searching in YouTube and you can create a playlist without leaving the search interface. [via CyberNet News]
  • Grocery List Generator: This extension works with the website linked to facilitate building your grocery list. It also makes it easy to find recipes and add the necessary ingredients to your shopping list very easily.
  • PriceDrop: A must have for an Amazon.com shopper. With this extension, you can watch for price drops for any item in Amazon.com and get notified. [via LifeHacker]
  • Fancy Numbered Tabs: A great extension for the keyboard shortcut fans. It replaces the ‘x’ – close button in the tab with the number. Now, you can press ‘ctrl’+'number on tab’ to easily switch to the tab you want. [via gHacks]
  • Stealther: I really tried thinking hard for an innocuous reason to use this extension. But I couldn’t. :-) You can browse without leaving a trace in your browser history, form history, closed tab list, downloded files, disk cache or sending of ReferrerHeader. It doesn’t clean up your previous browser information but just the session you enabled it.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s collection. You can click on the tag ‘Firefox‘ on the tag cloud in the sidebar to view my previous posts about Firefox and Firefox extensions.

Sound off your favorite in this list in the comments. Let me know if you come across a great extension as well.

    PriceDrop extension looks cool, and there are lots of great products on Amazon, I hope that in near future they will do something to include more allowed countries – I can only look items but can’t buy them – they don’t ships to Latvia yet :(

    Inga, that’s too bad! Hopefully that situation will change soon. :smile:

    Ahh, the More Tools menu. I think that was one of the first few I ever used, and still use to date. Great pick!

    Thanks Kyle! I just discovered it.. I guess it makes me a control freak that I use the Menu Editor to customize my menus totally, huh? :wink:

    Ooo, I need More Tools Menu. Do I assume correctly that it also affects the right-click context menu? If so, then count me in. :)

    Brown, I get you every time, don’t I? :mrgreen:

    Mark.. sorry wasn’t able to respond sooner. I hope you found your answer.. I would love to hear it if you have.

    I love these posts…..but I sometimes fear for my browser’s bloat level and it’s ever increasing risk of coronary meltdown :lol:

    Keep ‘em coming, I’ll keep reading and downloading!

    Maurice, fear not! I run 20-30 extensions at any one time and you can imagine the heat my laptop generates. I make my eggs in the morning over it. :grin:

    Glad you love ‘em because I have no intention of stopping these posts. :wink:

    I love YouPlayer, makes producing a track list ten times easier. Thank you so much for introducing me to it :)
