Great Firefox add-ons

I'm a big fan of Firefox and have started using a new add-on which is just brilliant.

Using SEOpen, from one right-click, I can check a page's:

  • Yahoo Backlinks
  • Pages in Yahoo Index
  • Google Backlinks
  • Google Cache
  • Pages in Google index
  • Google Translate to English
  • Google Related
  • PageRank Check
  • MSN Backlinks
  • Pages in MSN Index
  • Alexa Overview
  • Alexa Traffic
  • Alexa Related
  • Alexa Backlinks
  • "Mass Check" multiple sources at once
  • Check DMOZ Inclusion
  • Keyword Density
  • Page Size Checker
  • HTML Validator
  • Server Header Viewer
  • Wayback Machine
  • Check robots.txt
  • Whois Info

This is a bit specialist (ahem) but some of the other add-ons I love can be useful for everyone:

  • TinyUrl Creator
    Very easy copy'n'paste for a shorter URL
  • Tabbrowser Preferences
    Useful things like retrieving closed tabs, copy tab URL
  • Snipshot
    Edit images easily, simple crop, resize
  • Show Screen Captures
    Displays thumbnail screenshots next to external links on a web page, this one I think I'll disable
  • ScrapBook
    Extremely useful to clip pages or text but be even better if I was saving to my web repository, not my hard drive
  • Plain Text Links
    Lets me open a URL from text
  • Menu Editor
    Edit right-click menu
  • Image Zoom
  • IE Tab
    Shows a page as it would appear in IE
  • Groowe Search Toolbar
    Combines Google, Wikipedia (I use that a lot), Yahoo, etal
  • Greasemonkey
    Great developer tool. More >
  • Advanced Dork
  • DOM Inspector
  • LinkChecker
  • ColorZilla
    Copies any colour from a page.
  • DownThemAll!
    Speeds up + manages downloading
  • deskCut
    Puts a shortcut on your desktop
  • Adblock Plus
    Blocks ads (except those served from the site, which some do)
  • What am I missing?
