I’m a Firefox user. I love the way you can customize it according to your needs and extend its functionality using a wide range of powerful add-ons available. I choose add-ons that make my web experience faster, safer and convenient. Here I share few of my favorite add-ons that are always enabled (in no specific order) -
Annoyed by adverts? Troubled by tracking? Bothered by banners? Install Adblock Plus now to regain control of the internet and change the way that you view the web.
This is a must have add-on for anyone who hate ads. Its damn easy to install and blocks ads virtually everywhere. Many would consider this an anti-social behaviour, however since ads usually track you – I’m least concerned.
Pentadactyle is Firefox for Vim users. It gives you awesome Vim bindings right within Firefox, hides unnecessary chrome and make it more keyboard accessible. If you are a Vim user, it is cetainly going to make you faster and more efficient.
In my knowledge, this is something that doesn’t exist in any other browser. I love it and perhaps is one of the big and awesome things that lets me stick to Firefox.
Protect your privacy. See who’s tracking your web browsing and block them with Ghostery.
Ghostery blocks tracking cookies, widgets and other third party scripts (like analytics), and does that very well. Its customizable and lets you choose what to block and what not to. It shows what is being blocked and lets you know more about it.
Overall its very easy and convenient to use. I left NoScript after I discovered this. Everyone(Facebook, Google, Twitter…) is tracking you even when you are logged out, and if you are concerned I strongly recommend you to get this.
WOT shows you which websites you can trust based on millions of users’ experiences around the world.
Not something that I use regularly, but can be very useful sometimes. Hundreds of community made scripts available for use.
A visual bookmarking tool which you can set as your homepage. Shows selected bookmarks on Speed Dial (like Chrome). Also lets you take small notes.
A nice in-browser download manager. Also allows you to filter and download contents(images, links …) in the web page. If you are looking for a clean and decent Download Manager, with some cool features your search should end here.
Creates a small bar at bottom from where downloads can be viewed and managed. No need for a separate download window, hence very convenient if you download small files very often.
