Currently there is only one extension that I find really useful, and that is Download Statusbar. Are there any other useful extensions out there worth having installed?
At the moment I’m toying with a few additional extensions together with Firefox 2.0.
- ChromaTabs – Colors the each tab with a different color depending on the domain
- del.icio.us – Adds “My del.icio.us” and tag buttons
- Tab Catalog – Shows thumbnails of the pages for each tab similar to the new IE7 feature
I think the Tab Catalog one will the first to go since I can’t really come up with any good uses for it. But the other two I might keep. Having two small buttons for del.icio.us instead of an entire Bookmarks toolbar visible is nice. The only thing that could cause issues is if it starts crashing the browser as some previous version did when I tried it with Firefox 1.5. And the colored tabs looks really nice and adds a very easy way to distinguish between different sites when I browse forums and so on.
I don’t know if your download extension is the same that i saw the other day, but it was an extension that would allow you to see how your bittorrent files were progressing in the statusbar. Thank’s for the tip on the tab catalog extension though.
No, the Download Statusbar doesn’t support BiTtorrent as far as I know. It just shows the progress of regular file downloads.
For BitTorrent I still use ÂµTorrent. 🙂
