Having a problem viewing a Web page that is not there anymore? Maybe it got popular and now it is a little hard to pull it up. Well, that is why cache was created – you silly little person. Now with the extension Cache View you can make good use out of it.
Displays Google’s Cache, Coral’s Cache, Wayback Machine’s Cache, Dot Cache, Tech Guru’s Cache, and Cachebin’s cache of the current tab open via right-click or Tools menu. This was made so that if the site is down in any way, especially the Digg effect and Slashdot effect, you can hopefully view it.
We all want a way to get more information about the Web sites we know and love, right? Even if you don’t run one yourself, it is always nice to go out and find out something you did not know. That is where the About This Site Firefox extension comes in. It will hand you a plethora of details all in one context menu.
Am I the only person out there that has not ever really noticed a big speed increase when using Fasterfox? The newest version of the extension is out, and it now works with Firefox 2. If you can, leave me a comment if you have really noticed a difference using this extension – because I am confused why I have not.
Fasterfox allows you to tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache, DNS cache, and initial paint delay.
Dynamic speed increases can be obtained with the unique prefetching mechanism, which recycles idle bandwidth by silently loading and caching all of the links on the page you are browsing.
Breadcrumbs, the Firefox extension, is all about searching your local history for information and results. Think of it as creating your own private search engine for just your browser history. How many times have you found yourself remembering what you were looking at but not remembering where you found it? Breadcrumbs, in that case would come in, let you search and save the day.
Don’t you hate it when you find something interesting on the front page of digg.com and it is already down due to the high traffic demands? So do I. Some people belly-ached over my last digg-related Firefox extension pick. Digg Coral Cache should be a winner with everybody. It turns those links into Coral Cache links or a user-specified cache-server link.
