This is my first extension pick post since the Firefox 3 release. There are so many new & cool extensions that have come out and let’s look at a few this week.
- Better Amazon: From Lifehacker, another great Firefox extension that makes shopping at amazon.com a treat. Hights products with Super Saver free shipping in search results, automatically enlarges images, shortens Amazon URLs for easy emailing, collapses unwanted junk in the page, etc.
- Pluribo: While we are shpping at Amazon, there is another add-on that uses artificial intelligence to analyze the reviews in the product pages and provide you with ‘Cliff-notes’ version of the verdict from fellow shoppers. This could be a real time-saver for comparing reviews on different products when you are short on time. Pluribo helps those who forget our anniversaries yet still get a gift in time.

- Dashblog: This add-on lets you grab videos from any page and post it to Tumblr, Twitter, WordPress or Blogger/blogspot. If you are a video blogger, this will be a huge benefit as it even support multiple Blogger accounts.
- UnMHT: A very cool extension that lets you save pages you are viewing with images and videos as a single file for later reading or restoring. It saves it in teh form of mime HTMl files. It could also save your pages with the tabs you are viewing making this extension your own session saver.
- FireGestures: An alternative to teh popular Mouse Gestures add-on. FireGestures support five types of gestures: mouse gestures, rocker gestures, wheel gestures, keypress gestures and tab wheel gestures.
- Smart Bookmarks Bar: If you are into saving real estate in Firefox, you will love this extension. It modifies the bookmark to show just the favicons for the sites bookmarked, saving considerable space.
- WikiLook: Another tooltip dictionary extension that is elegant to use. Just press the Shift key and mouse over the word to see the meaning from Wikitionary pop up.
How is Firefox 3 treating you? If you haven’t upgraded to Firefox 3, they even released a bug fix 3.0.1 to fix some of the problems and security issues.
Enjoy finding new extensions and I will see you soon with more.
