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.

Back to Top

Don’t you hate it when you make it to the bottom of a really large document and you have no way to get back to the top?

NewTabURL

This is a handy extension to have. The NewTabURL Firefox extension allows you to set how your new tabs open. You can have it open the home page of the browser, a blank Web page or a copy of the current Web page you are viewing. Other extensions out there do this and more, but if you just want this feature and nothing else.. well, here you go!

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.

Tab to Window

Want more control over your tabs? The Tab to Window Firefox extension will allow you to have a few more options when you have a tab open. You can move a tab to a new window or you can copy a tab to a new window. For those folks out there that like multiple windows and tabs open when they are browsing, this is for them.

DragToScroll

Paste in Your E-mail

If there is one thing that we type in more than our names and passwords, it is our E-mail address. The thing we need is a tool that would just remember out E-mail address and paste it in where we wanted it and when we wanted it. Oh, you mean there is such a thing? The Paste E-mail Firefox extension does just that.
