My Favorite Firefox Add-ons

Firefox has always been my preferred browser for surfing the Net. Installing certain add-ons really help me in my day-to-day work. Here are some of my favorite and frequently-used Firefox add-ons.

1. FireFTP
FireFTP is a free, secure, cross-platform FTP client for Mozilla Firefox which provides easy and intuitive access to FTP servers.

2. Echofon (previously known as Twitterfox)
Echofon is a family of Twitter apps and notifies you of your friends’ tweets on Twitter. Brilliant add-on. Tucks in quietly and neatly at the bottom right hand corner of your browser.

3. Screengrab
Screengrab saves webpages as images. It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame. Very useful indeed.

4. Firebug
Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page. I use this almost everyday for my work. =)

5. Web Developer
The Web Developer extension adds a menu and a toolbar to the browser with various web developer tools. After installing the extension there is a ‘Web Developer’ menu under the ‘Tools’ and context menu of the browser, as well as a new toolbar.
