Extensions Du Jour

Some Firefox extensions that you should all be aware of:

  • CustomizeGoogle - seriously cool "suggest" feature and ad blocking. This one is a must have.
  • BugMeNot - automatically fills in login pages for registration sites like the NY Times. Never go through a retarded registration process again.
  • SessionSaver - never lose your tabs or your blog again. It automatically saves all your tabs and everything you type, so if your system crashes or you reboot your browser is just as you left it.
  • ForecastFox - very polished weather extension.
  • Sage - the best RSS aggregator I've seen.
  • Bookmarks Synchronizer - combine this with a free account from and you'll always have your bookmarks available at any computer you use.
  • BBCode - this one is nice for blogging. Gives you a right-click menu for common HTML code. It's set to use BBCode by default so you have to change the preferences to use HTML instead.
  • HashColouredTabs - if you're a serious WWW junkie like me then you typically have over 20 tabs open at any given time. This extension gets rid of the clutter by assigning color-based icons to webpages that don't have their own icons predefined.

That's all for now. Happy browsing.

The BBCode is awesome.
