WebDeveloper and other Firefox extensions

If you are not using Firefox extensions, you are stupid.

If you are not even using Firefox, you are beyond stupid.

SEO/Webmaster

WebDeveloper

WebDeveloper is awesome.

SearchStatus

I like the latest feature that highlights nofollow links.

ShowIP

Shows the IP of the current site. Includes a nice menu to search for that IP in various services.

General

FasterFox

Make it go faster.

Disposable Email 

Create free disposable email addresses and paste them directly in forms.

Download Embedded

Useful for downloading flash and other embedded objects.

FlashBlock

No more annoying flash. If you want to see it, just click on it.

Leet Key

Convert text to L337, ROT13, BASE64, HEX, URL, BIN, DES and more.

You can also add

a[rel~="nofollow"] {
border: thin dashed firebrick ! important;
background-color: rgb(255, 200, 200) ! important;
}

to userContent.css in the chrome directory to get highlighted nofollows.

Some other favorites of mine include:

IE Tab
Let’s you open a tab running IE. Great for checking your site in multiple browsers quickly.

Disable Targets for Downloads
Let’s you avoid that annoying empty tab that pops up every time you download something. Helps eliminate the irritation.

Hope that helps out as well. Some other cool ones include CSS Viewer and Sage.
