Cooliris – Google Search Previews

Ever wanted to know what was under those search result links in Google? With Cooliris, all you need to do is hover your mouse over the link and you get a preview of where it leads. This Firefox extension also works with Google image searches as well. Think of this as a sneak peek before you click.

Open a New Tab in Firefox

Want to open up a new tab in Firefox? Well, all you have to do is double click on the tab bar to do so. Don’t want to mess around with your mouse? If that is the case, then hit the Ctrl key plus T key on the keyboard. Want another solution? Go up to File, then select “New Tab”. As you can see there are multiple ways of getting the same thing done. All you have to do is pick your favorite!

OpenBox

Right now there are not many options when it comes to opening Web sites in Firefox. The OpenBox Firefox extension gives you a few more options when opening up a new Web site. You can choose to open it in the current tab, a new tab or a new window.

Xultris – Tetris Clone

I often find myself surfing from Web site to Web site looking for something to do. If you have found yourself in this place more than once, than give the Xultris Firefox extension a shot. When clicked, it launches you into an adictive game of Tetris. This is the ultimate answer to time killing.

diggbar Toolbar

I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.

Grocery List Generator

The Grocery List Generator Firefox extension helps you with making a list of things you need to get from the store. This just seems a little strange to me. Maybe I am a little “old school” but then again, the beauty of Firefox is there is an extension for everybody.

This extension does a good job at creating an organized list of things you might need to make your grocery shopping as easy as possible. Give me an extension that will watch my undies, then we will talk.

Display Installed Extensions Online

InfoLister is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and Nvu that gathers various information (such as themes, extensions and plugins) about Firefox/Thunderbird and saves it to a file. Now where the interesting part comes in, is the ability to upload that list as an XML file so you can share what extensions you are using with your friends Online.

Thanks goes to Douglas for this very interesting tip. Here is how you can find out a little more about using the output of InfoLister to fit your needs:

Stylish

Stylish is to CSS what Greasemonkey is to JavaScript. Stylish allows you to easily manage user styles for the application UI, all websites, or only certain websites. Stylish is better than using userChrome.css/userContent.css because styles are applied immediately instead of requiring a restart.
