I’m setting up a new machine, and tonight I was getting Firefox all pimped out with extensions. I’ve installed five of them, which are — without a doubt — crucial to me (even though two of them are new for 1.5). Here are my top five:
- Web Developer
Once you use it to develop a Web site, you’ll never go back.
A great little color picker that gives me the code in RGB, which I’m snobbish about.
A ruler that tells you how far it is from here to there.
- Tab Preview
Mouseover a tab, and it will show you what’s underneath.
I just used this for the first time just a few days ago, and now I use it over and over again every day. This is as important as Web Developer to me when building sites.
Some honorable mentions: TabInTa, CopyURLPlus, and Greasemonkey. I don’t use any of these enough to consider them “crucial,” but when I do use them, they’re huge to me. (Sadly, there’s no 1.5-compatible version of Tabinta, so that’s just a pleasant memory for now.)
What are your must-have extensions?
