Firefox Extensions

Here is a list of Firefox extensions I have installed on my computer:

  • DOM Inspector – inspect web page information
  • FoxyTunes – allows you to control multimedia functions within your browser
  • GooglePreview – shows screenshots along with Google searches
  • MetaFilthy – tracks which threads you've read on MetaFilter
  • ColourfulTabs – makes tabs more readable
  • SearchEngineOrdering – allows you to easily sort Firefox searchbox extensions
  • WizzRSS – an RSS reader
  • CustomizeGoogle – extends your Google searches
  • GDirections – allows easy access to Google maps from any web page
  • TabMixPlus – one of my favourite extensions, it allows tons of options to be set for Firefox tabs
  • Answers – one-click access to definitions of words, etc. on a web page
  • DownThemAll – download all links on a page
  • Delicious – extension to simplify bookmarking to delicious
  • Foxylicious – haven't used it yet but came across it today as an extension to sync delicious bookmarks with local bookmarks
  • Videodownloader – allows you to download clips from YouTube, Google Video and other video sites
  • AdBlock – blocks ads
  • Performancing – blog entry assistant though I haven't figured out how to configure it to work with my account yet
  • CopyURL+ – copies the selected text plus the URL for pasting into a new document
  • Greasemonkey – to install various scripts to modify/improve web sites
  • Screengrab! – allows you to capture an image of an entire web page, not just what's visible on the display

Why do I know this?  My Firefox croaked unexpectedly today so I had to re-install each of these extensions.  <sigh>

Classmate of the Day: Melissa McQueen hosted a very fun trivia night at hte Grad Club tonight.  Dylan from first term and I won a $10 gift certificate in the first round, promptly spent it on a pitcher and never won another round.  I challenge everyone reading to come out next week and see if you know the names of the four characters on “Sex in the City” or what the name of that little bone in your ear is.  (Hint: it's not “ear bone” which is what all three teams answered.)

    The stirrup bone. (I asked Shea when I got home and she knew it. I hope she can make it out next time – I need to have some gender and science balance on my team!)
