What browser extensions/themes do you use?

Recommended Posts

This might be a fun topic to play with so i'll start it. I have always wondered what kind of person he\she is with the type of extensions they install on Firefox browsers. Please don't limit yourself to Firefox. You may also post your Thunderbird and other Mozilla browsers. Your skins would be fun to post too :lol:.

Yea, same with me. I use Firefox for XP, Fedora, OSx86, and Mac because of adblock and WebDeveloper.

I found PithHelmet for Safari to be as good as Adblock + Filterset.G.

Most of the interesting things of the developer toolbar made it into Safari plugins too. Some of them are unavailable is other browsers. For example, editable and syntax-highlighted "View source" with "apply" and "revert" buttons, or a sidebar showing thumbnails (re-orderable by drag and drop) of the tabs in a window, all that in a way that is much more respectful of Mac conventions than Firefox. View my list in post #2.

I gree with FF being a memory hog when you use tabbed browsing. I hardly use FF in linux becaue it literally used over 100mb of memory, that's with all extensions disabled. Kind of depresing, so I use Opera in Linux. My main browser for OS X is Shiira (Flash working) and main browser for Winders is Firefox.

Well, I meant the tabbed browser extention (addon). I don't have problems when not using it. It does eat TONS of memory though... I have 17 tabs open and it is using 400MB on 2003 Server! I have 1.5 GB of RAM though so I manange.

I don't know how you manage 17 tabs. I have no more thab 8 tabs and it only eats about 60mb in Win. On another note, it is a fact that a normal Firefox 1.5 Linux install will consume over 100mb of memoey if you use it for over an hour. The fix from Mozilla is to close the browser and open it again :D. FF for 10.4.3 1111 is now available. I hope they fixed some things this time.

Probably something wrong w/that session on the 2003 machine. It'd been up for a week or so. The laptop I'm on now in XP has 28 tabs open and is just using 125MB.

I'm using Camino and love it. I haven't added any extensions to it since I like it just the way it is. While not x86 or universal, Camino is very stable and quite fast on occasion.

Flash working in Shiira?

 

For me, only PPC Firefox can load flash. Shiira, DeerPark, and even Safari with Rosetta crash on flash sites (though I have the FlashBlock extension in DeerPark and disabled plugins in Shiira to avoid this).

 

I'm using 8f1099 with an SSE2 processor and an unsupported Radeon 7500.

 

Any tips on getting Flash to work?

Just recently wiped everything, but at the moment, I have the Chatzilla extension (much prefer mIRC, or Colloqy, but it's handy for quick things), and this little extension called Popup Alt Attribute. Without it, all the alt-text is cut off. :P

 

Especially handy when reading the webcomic Dr.McNinja :D

I just added the Filterset.G Updater, but I'm not sure if I'll be keeping it.

 

My iBook isn't nearly as much of a powerhouse as my Pentium 4, so I just install Adblock Plus, Flashblock, SpellBound, and Tab Mix Plus on the Linux and Macintosh versions of Firefox. I might also install Viamatic foXpose on them, since Firefox Showcase uses F12 and the shortcut can't be changed without another extension.
