      Re: Browsers

      I wonder if it's worth starting a "favourite Firefox extension" thread... for now, this is my list of installed plugins:

      Aardvark (Aardvark Firefox Extension)
      Add Bookmark Here
      CustomizeGoogle
      Flashblock
      Mouse Gestures
      StumbleUpon
      VideoDownloader

      Mouse Gestures is an absolute *must* - you get so used to it, that trying to use IE afterwards is a real pain in the posterior :-p - it allows you to navigate forwards and backwards really quickly by right-clicking the mouse and "nudging" it left or right.

      Aardvark is a nice one for cleaning up a page for clarity - try it on the site first of all, but it allows you to remove all the clutter / adverts / side navigation frames etc. from a site.

      If you've never used StumbleUpon, GET IT NOW ! - it allows you to tell it what type of site you're interested in, and if you're feeling bored or just want something new, hit the "stumble" button - it'll take you to a site someone thought was interesting from your range of preferences. You can add your own favourite sites too with a single click of a button.

      If you are at work, don't even think about using stumbleupon. It can seriously damage how much work you get done.
      The problem is that it is so addictive. You hit the stumble button and you discover some new wonderful site you've never seen before. Then you have to hit it again to see if you can find another great site. You do. There goes another hour.
      Before you know it, you've lost a whole day at work just by clicking that bloody stumble button.

      Just say no people.

      Thanks Phoe. These plugins are all new to me.
      Although I was originally an IE fan I now rarely use it.
      Firefox is far superior, especially with Sky BB.
      Iwill try Stumbledown and Mouse Gestures.

      Re: Browsers

      I could never understand why people raved about Firefox and the tabs and add ons but having switched to it late last year I would never go back to IE. I have to admitt I am a bit of an 'add on' junkie. These are what I have:

      Custmize Google
      Adblock Plus
      British English Dictonary
      Colorful Tabs
      Cookie Manager Button
      DownloadHelper
      Fasterfox
      Flashblock
      Google Toolbar for Firefox
      IE View lite
      Image Toolbar
      Linkification
      New Tab button on Tab Bar
      PDF Download
      Print Preview
      Quick Restart
      Reload Every
      Tab Saver
      Undo Closed Tabs Button

      Not sure i'm keen on DownloadHelper having looked at it, but the linkification one looks very useful !
