Want a Firefox add-on that will alert you to the latest and greatest information you need to know? Then you have come to the right spot.  I have been reading through my archives here at Firefox Facts to find you the 24 alert add-ons that you should not live without.  Everything from webmaster tools to traceroutes and pings are covered – so I hope you enjoy this list and share it with others!

    • Ciuvo

      Ciuvo finds best deals for your wanted product. Price check, comparison, customer reviews, product videos and coupons right in your web browser.

    • Twoo

      You’ll only ever be one click away from the latest news on Twoo, the world’s friendliest social discovery platform.  I had never heard of this social platform before, but once you dive in it does offer a lot to your casual web user.

    • WorldIP

      Need an add-on for Firefox that will help you ping, traceroute and more? While most competitors only check domain name owners registered location and/or what ISP the IP is registered at, WorldIP actually shows the physical location the websites are served from by means of AS number, which is actually used for routing traffic around […]

    • Quick Maps

      Need an easier way to find locations? Quick Maps will let you find locations on Google Maps in just a second. 

    • Price Comparison & Coupons

      Want a Firefox extension that will help you make automatic price and coupon comparisons the next time you do some online shopping? PriceBlink is an add-on for Firefox that does a very good job at this.  It will automatically find lower prices and money-saving coupons from thousands of retailers while you shop.

    • WebRank Toolbar

      This toolbar gives Google PageRank, Alexa, Compete and Quantcast Rank, pages indexed and backlinks in Google, Bing and Yahoo. Bookmark webpages at PickMeWeb.com or view similar websites at SimilarSites.com, Delicious, Digg and Tweet Count. It is a toolbar that brings a little ‘bit of everything to the table for a webmaster.

    • Add a Simple Timer to the Browser

      Is it time yet? Come on, is it time yet? If you find yourself asking this question time and time again, it might be about time you picked up the Simpler Timer add-on for Firefox.  This clock and timer, once installed, lives inside your status bar (or toolbar) for easy access.

    • Social Media Notifications in the Tabs

      Can’t you wait a few more minutes to see if anything has been updated on Facebook, Twitter or Google +? Thankfully, for Firefox users, there is a really nice add-on that will check into this for you.  Tab Badge will give you uniform notifications of new content in the Firefox tab bar. 

    • Webutation – Reputation & Security

      Would you like to know which websites are safe and which website you can trust? The Webutation add-on shows you the reputation of a site with a simple green/yellow/red icon and scans websites against virus and bad user feedback. Works similar to WOT.

    • Price History Charts

      The Camelizer adds price history charts and price watch features to product pages on sites like Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. Use it to make informed purchasing decisions and to receive price drop alerts via email, Twitter, or RSS feed.

    • Certificate Patrol

      Your browser trusts many certification authorities and intermediate sub-authorities quietly, every time you enter an HTTPS web site. This add-on reveals when certificates are updated, so you can ensure it was a legitimate change.

    • Bring RSS to the Firefox Sidebar

      If you use the built in feed reading capabilities of Firefox, the Live Bookmarks feature, you might be missing the fact that you do not have an organized list of new entries to go through like you would have in a traditional RSS reader.  The Feed Sidebar add-on for Firefox is here to take your […]
