Hey my friends
It would be interesting to know, what firefox addons you use and like.
My favorites are:
Firebug + extensions for it
User Agent Switcher
Pixlr Grabber (I love that one )
Noscript and https everywhere. I wouldnt use ghostery with tor button. ghostery screw things up and leave information.
User Agent Switcher
Add N Edit Cookies
Live HTTP Headers
+ some of my own
Here are some of my favorites:
Thanks Orpheus for the good advice with ghostery.
As you all know, I am not a big fan of Firefox and heavily biased towards Opera
However, I recognise its uses and that it has a number of scrips and addons. I also have every browser installed for testing website designs and stuff anyway... We can all universally agree that IE is bottom of the pile.
The only Firefox addons I have ever used are:
Firebug - I mean, c'mon, a browser without included developer tools?! It's 2012 and even IE has had its developer tools included since IE7, it's about time FF did...
RefControl - Only ever used that for a challenge where I couldn't be bothered to code a script to do the referer stuff and do the next page action.
TamperData - Quite possibly the most useful addon for pentesting, security and web development.
In Opera I have the following extensions:
NoAds - Does a wonderful job of blocking almost every known annoying advert. There may well be a version for FF, I don't know.
HTMLValidator - Links the current page to the W3C Validator, saves a bit of typing.
YouTube AdsFree - Works some of the time.
Show IDs - Allows you to hover over HTML elements on a page and show their HTML IDs - useful if you want to write a custom filter for NoAds to block an advert embedded in a static HTML element.
JsonViewer - See what JSON data is being passed between browser/server. I would like to find an XML socket thing like that or one for jQuery, might be useful.
Google Images Direct - Don't you jsut hate it normally when you click on an image in a Google image search, that it goes to the original page in a frame? Why not go direct?
I actually never use addons at all really... I did have a few but new PC and never bothered to fucking get them again cus I never used them anyway. Generally don't do enough webdesign to need tools for that and if I need something tested I just whip up a quick PHP script for it. However, I didn't know about Flash Block, I'll be damn sure to check that one out. Thanks ynori.
