Your Favourite Browser Extensions/Add-ons
 
So I thought I might post this thread to see what everyone's favourite browser extensions/add-ons are. Some of mine would have to be Ad-block-plus, I don't have all that many and I am looking for some new ones to try out.

Firefox with Ad Block, NoScript (invaluable), Downloadstatusbar and DoNotTrackMe. Oh and the one that brings up your homepage when you open up a new tab (very handy).

These are all for chrome. There's probably equivalents for firefox and other browsers.

Google dictionary - allows you to simply highlight a word to get a definition. I don't use it very much, but when I do, it's pretty nice.

Webpage screenshot - Pretty self-explanatory. It lets you take a screenshot of entire webpages, even if they're bigger than your monitor.

Session buddy - allows you to save and manage browsing sessions

Hover zoom - This is probably the most useful one. All you have to do is mouse over a thumbnail or image link and it shows it to you. Makes websites like reddit so much more usable.

Adblock plus - self-explanatory.

YTshowrating - It shows video ratings for the related videos on youtube. Pretty useful if you like to watch random videos sometimes.

I don't use any tools, they make it slow, so I just stick with adblock.

thanks foothead. i'll check out Google dictionary and hover zoom.

I use Adblock and something called "Select and Speak"
Select and Speak is a plugin that gives you the option to make the computer read up text that you highlight.
i use it sometimes if one of you guys post a large post. if i don't feel like reading it all, i'll just highlight it and make chrome read it out loud.

Chrome isn't dumb, All browsers have features that others cannot do.

Yeah Chrome has it's good and bad sides.

I dont use Chrome coz I am paranoid that Google is watching every move I make.
