Have it Your Way with Firefox!

I need another top Firefox extensions list like I need another hole in my head, but they keep coming anyways.

Firefox extensions are small add-on programs that add a new piece of functionality to the browser. These extensions can range from adding a new toolbar button to adding a completely new feature. The great thing about these extensions is that you can choose which extensions you want to add. This allows Firefox to stay small in size and run efficiently. The following is a list of the 25 of the best extensions for Firefox.

BrowseAtWork

Need to do some browsing at work or school? This extension allows you to open the current page, or a link on the current Web page, anonymously with BrowseAtWork.com by adding a shortcut to the context menu. This is ideal for viewing webpages blocked by many corporate or school filters.

URL Fixer

URL Fixer corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation). This extension should help those of us who have a hard time finding the right keyboard keys every once in a while.

URL Shortener

Here is yet another Firefox extension that will give you a shorter URL for those long links you navigate to. For example, let us say you were looking at a Web page that was a few folders deep into the Web site. Now instead of having to copy that big long URL, you can now put it through URL Shortener and get something a little easier to handle.

Need another option? Then you might want to check out mURL – mini URL.

SurfBook

Most of the time we browse from Web page to Web page without thinking about any organization to our madness. If you think of the Web as a book, and each Web site is a page in that book, then navigation makes a little more sense. The SurfBook Firefox extension gives your browser that ability.

I know I have told loved ones, family and friends I would like to have a second brain. Not really sure where I would put it, but with everything we are doing these days Online, it would come in handy. The Firefox gBrain extension gives me a “Googlized” version of a second brain, as far as my browsing habits go. I guess beggars can not be choosers.
