Thursday Thirteen - My Favorite Firefox Add-ons - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

Another geeky Thursday Thirteen. Here are thirteen Firefox add-ons that I use all the time:

  1. 1-ClickWeather - With current conditions and forecasts always shown, and radar at the click of a button, it even beats even the TV for getting weather information. Tip: Use it in the menu bar so it doesn't obstruct automatically sizing windows when it is in the status bar.
  2. Adblock Plus - Need I say more? Ads magically disappear off of sites. Wish I had it on the iPhone Safari browser.
  3. Commentful - I use this if I want to be informed of updates on an interesting post that I comment on. I also tag my own profusely written comments so that I can find them again (usually grabbing the text for my own blog post... It isn't plagiarizing if you are the author of the comment right?).
  4. Bookmarks - I live and breathe Plus I am always using more than one computer. Can't live without this one.
  5. Download Statusbar - The default Firefox download interface is confusing and complicated so this is a welcome relief.
  6. FireFTP - Awesome interface for FTP transactions.
  7. Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer - This is actually used by my husband who doesn't live and breathe It provides a clean separation between my bookmarks and his on our shared computers.
  8. Google Toolbar - Yes, I can't live without this add-on from the next evil empire.
  9. Greasemonkey - This is so cool that I'll list my current user scripts as well (really for the truly geeky):
  10. PicLens - If you haven't tried it, you NEED to!! It is quite a trip. Check out the video of Adam using it.
  11. StumbleUpon - For your daily mouse pellet of the web. Actually, I use the "I like it!" button more than anything.
  12. TinyURL Creator - Just right-click and you've got your TinyURL. Brilliant.
  13. Twitterbar - Why copy a link for twitter? Just click the plus sign right from the address bar. Just see this tweet!!
