2009 vs 2013 Useful
Firefox [Browser] Addons
Originally I wasn’t really into add ins then i got into trying loads of add ins and eventuallyi have whittled it back to the few firm favourites/favorites for the americans.
[i was going to del fav bit but then I noticed that my firefox dictionary is still set to US because of it (which is what happened back in 2009 too haha)
ubiquity beta addon for firefox – run, send email, new calendar event, update twitter.
have not tried this yet. Read about it here:
or at mozzy labs: http://labs.mozilla.com/2008/08/introducing-ubiquity/[2014 Ubiquity has died, but you can still install the addon (download using the bitbucket link)]: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mozilla-labs-ubiquity/
Favourites/remember this website
Taboo – one click remember this, timeline
Readitlaterlist.com Now Getpocket.com – my cuurent fav [2014: Still using it today]
Tab kit [Plus]- organizer of tabs
[2014 I haven’t used this in a while]
[New for 2013: Firefox: TooManyTabs https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/toomanytabs-saves-your-memory]
Testing this one right now!
[2014 Tab Manager]
Awesome enables Tabs of Tabs (another tab bar above so you can group tabs into projects, subjects etc)
however not available for latest firefox and the other versions are buggy/not working. 🙁
[New for 2014: Chrome: OneTab http://www.one-tab.com/ ]
There really is one tab to rule them all!Fold all open tabs down to one and free all that memory. Edit what’s ‘open’, leave it just as a single tab, or reopen (one by one or all).
I NEED to test this one when I switch back to Chrome!
Session Manager – protector and saver of tabs! [2014: integrated session managers are pretty comprehensive now!]
Download Them All
[2014:Still very useful last time I used it a few years ago, but internet speeds have increased monumentally since 2009, so much so that download managers are not needed for that anymore. It’s still a brilliant tool for downloading all images from a page for example]
