The reason why Mozilla Firefox has been staying strong over these past years is not only its security, its quickness, and its ability to be stable, but for its wide array of add-ons it provides to its users. There is a vast oasis of these add-ons and sometimes its hard to pick out the best ones. Today I’m going to pick those needles out of the haystack and help you make your Firefox experience better.
1. With so many websites and communities on the web it’s hard to keep track of all of them. Even with Firefox’s built-in password manager it still is very annoying when you have to clear your private data, and then most of your passwords are lost, or they don’t automatically fill it in for you. With Sxipper, it not only stores your login information, it has different aliases to choose from and a cool interface. On top of that it’s a auto-form filler and you have the option to choose what you reveal to those pesky websites. They also give you the option of using a disposable email address.
2. Notes are very handy to have because some of the best ideas come at the most random times and its why we lose most of them to outer space. There are two add-ons for two different kind of people. One is very simple and lacks the option of a one touch pop-up and minimizer, yet the other one might give too much customizability that it’s just pointless. Those two are QuickNote and EverNote. The reason why EverNote might be too complicated is it lets you share your notes with other people and take them around with you through your online account. Do you really need another account for just notes?
4. If you are an online album lover then you’ll love this add-on. Linky will let you select multiple links and open them in a new window or tab. Especially good for photo albums where there are multiple pictures, Linky will speed up your viewing and stop you from getting a sore index finger.
5. This is a small but useful add-on to enhance your browsing experience. TabPreview is just like it says. It previews the tab you are hovering over to give you a better idea of what that tab is all about. When Firefox first came out, the tabs were a huge advantage over IE6, but then IE7 countered with the tabs. Now Firefox holds the lead again in this department with this add-on.
