Firefox Browser


The Firefox browser is an excellent browser among the availables today. I found an interesting article that compares the Firefox browser and the IE browser (Internet Explorer).

So of the interesting features are;
- Tabbed browsing
- Popup blocking
- Prevent scripts from doing various things
- More control over text zooming
- Block images from third party sites
- Cross-platform
- Open Source
- Huge range of extensions and ease of installing extensions

Read all the 101 things that the Mozilla browser can do that IE cannot.

I installed some more extensions for Firefox today which are listed below.

- CustomizedGoogle
Adds a selected set of search sites like yahoo, ask jeeva,.. to your google search result page. Also provide an easy customization.
- Tab X
This is an extension I was looking for. This adds a close button to each browser tab which is not availble in default Firefox.
- Gmail Notifier
Browser notifies for new mails. Still only the new mail arrival is shown, but showing the mail headings would improve the extensions popularity.
- Resize Search Box
Another feature that I was expecting from the default Firefox installation, how ever now I can resize the search box at the top right corner.
- Show IP
This shows the IP of the site.
- Flash Block
Allows the user to decide whether to play or stop the flash contents in the site.

What is your idea on these extensions?
