Firefox Extensions: Picks of the Week 2007-01-11

Friday is here and I am looking forward to a weekend of not doing a whole lot after last 4 weekends of hectic work from my day job.

Without further adieu, here are this week’s pick of extensions.

  • Password Hasher: You can create strong passwords with this extension and have it generate unique passwords based on destination. Very good security options available within it.
  • Meebo: This is a Firefox extension for the popular web based IM client, Meebo. After installing, a new tab will open and all your chat sessions will reside in this tab and you can view all your contacts in the sidebar. Has some nice features like flashing tabs when you have new messages, group chat, send a file, chat logs, etc. [via CyberNet News]
  • Price Drop: Adds a ‘Track this item’ line to a Amazon product page so you can get notified when the price of that item drops. Even after purchasing this is helpful to get a refund. Tools menu shows you all the items you are watching and you can delete the stuff you are nto interested in anymore. [via gHacks]
  • Interclue: Think Cooliris done better. Way better. Interclue lets you preview a link and has an option to clicking the link to preview instead of mouse over avoiding those accidental annoying pop-overs. Plus, it adds options in a preview to bookmark, email, copy the url to a clipboard and open in tabs options. It has a lot more features to list here so try it out if you have been looking for something like this. [via Download Squad]
  • GDirections: If you often delete your browser cookies and are tired of entering your address in Google or Yahoo Maps, you will love this extension. It can remember up to 3 addresses and you can get directions by selecting an address in your browser and a right-click.

If you are a Gmail & Greasemonkey user, get your fix of scripts from Top Greasemonkey Scripts for New Gmail 2.0 . If you are looking for more Firefox extensions, check out any of the posts in this series listed below.

Wish everyone a great Friday and a good weekend. πŸ˜‰

Β Thanks Silki, for noticing that I have the wrong year in the title! I blame it on the lack of caffeine this morning. πŸ‘Ώ

    Oh my God! Thanks for catching that, Silki! I will have to add a rewrite rule too in .htaccess to avoid 404 errors since this has already been indexed by Google!

    Hey, some nice picks here! I’d suggest taking a look at ColorZilla. Just installed it tonight to help optimize my AdSense colors, and it’s quite amazing πŸ™‚

    I am loving the meebo extension…

    Hey Techbliss, me too! As much as the integrated Gchat in Gmail works fine, sometimes it slwos down Gmail a lot, imho. Meebo looks promising especially seeing the contacts in the sidebar.

    Troy, sorry just found your comment stuck in Akismet for some reason. Great to see you like the picks. I have used Colorzilla along with Firebug to tweak ShanKri-la’s theme as well as do any web development stuff. I should probably do another post with my picks for web development soon. πŸ˜‰
