Pimp My Firefox Browser

Firefox is a great browser for a few reasons.

1. It is not fully integrated with my OS system like IE
2. I can add all sorts og extensions to it making it more useful

So in this post lets have a look at some of the most popular extensions and how to load them. First a video showing you how to do it.

Screengrab – is a really neat extension that will let you do a screen capture on the fly. It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame… basically it saves webpages as images – either to a file, or to the clipboard.

NoDoFollow – Just a simple extension to highlight links in a page according to nofollow / dofollow status. The reason this is good is when looking for blogs to comment on it will tell you if you get a credit for the link. You want to be looking for do follow.

AutoCopy – We like it because we’re bloggers, having to quote and copy links and code every day, but anyone who does a fair amount of copying to and from the web will dig AutoCopy.

The basic use: It copies anyt text you select on the web as soon as you select it-no Ctrl+C necessary. For pasting into text forms, you simply hit the middle mouse button rather than Control+V. If that’s all it did, hey, we’d recommend it to anyone who writes, copies, or pastes a lot, but we also have to point out that it fixes really long, wrap-broken URLs automatically. Three cheers for fewer pinky-finger stretches!

Google Toolbar – Take the power of Google with you anywhere on the Web

Cooliris 1.10 – Full-Screen, 3D — Cooliris is simply the fastest and most stunning way to browse photos and videos from the Web or your desktop. Effortlessly scroll a “3D Wall” of your content from Facebook, Google Images, YouTube, Flickr, and hundreds more.

Now there are a lot more but these are the main ones we use. Do not clog up your browser with too many extensions butif you use them keep them if not delete.
