In the Online world, the idea of shopping alone with no help at all is more than a little out dated. If you take a look around there are so many services and add-ons for Firefox that will turn you into a shopping and deal finding juggernaut.
You just have to know where to look and which are the best of the best.
Shopping Bag – This add-on promises to help you never miss a deal again. It is a free add-on that works with Firefox to help you find deals via iBakeSale.com. Cash-back at hundreds of online stores? Sounds interesting to me.
Pronto Shopping Messenger – The next extension on the list here brings you instant price comparisons when you shop online via a small message window that alerts you of potential savings.
Shopzilla – Easy search and save tool that makes Online shopping a little easier and cheaper too, if you use the tool correctly. Browse through sites like eBay and Amazon to find the best deal possible on the product you most desire.
Grocery List Generator – This add-on would be more helpful for “real world” shopping and hunting down of deals. The Grocery List Generator helps store your lists you need regularly.
Coupon Craze – This is one of the many coupon alerters out there that will help you keep track of the latest coupons, deals and offers when visiting your favorite shopping sites.
RetailMeNot 2.0 – Shopping has gone Web 2.0! If you find yourself always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to finding deals, RetailMeNot is the addon for you. It automatically informs you of sites its’ users have shared discount coupon codes for.
Woot Watcher – We all love Woot, right? I just feel silly typing that, but they do find some great deals. Woot Watcher monitors the Woot web site and keeps you updated on the current item, price and if it is sold out yet or not.
As you can see Firefox can be turned from a normal everyday browser into a shopper’s best friend. Toss in a few add-ons, and you can then brag to your friends that you too are saving money and finding the best deals on the Web.
Then once it is bookmarked…
Right-click on that bookmark and select “Properties”.
Check the box that says, “Load this bookmark in sidebar” and you are good to go! Go to say I really like this Web 2.0 web site – and this makes it even handier to use. (via AmanGos)
I figured I would try something a little new and different this week. Since top five or top ten lists seem to be so popular when it comes to Firefox, here are your top 5 most popular posts of the week.
Have a favorite that I might have missed? Leave a comment and let me know about it.
No list of Firefox extensions is any better than the next, but it seems like a new list comes out every day. It is an addiction I tell you! Everybody has their own opinion about what is the best and the worst out there, and the best thing you can do is look at all the lists, find how many extensions make it on all the lists, and go with those.
Here is one more fine example of lists in action from Download Squad on and about the 15 essential Firefox add-ons.
When I first heard about LinkWad, I thought it sounded a little gross. I don’t want my links in “wads”. I want my links in organized lists and helpful clusters that help me find what I need. Even though the name is a little disgusting, I learned that with Firefox it does provide you with better organization.
Another Firefox top ten list. Yes, I said another, “top ten lists write my content for me” list.
With all this talk of the Web as a platform, it’s worth taking a closer look at what web apps are using Firefox as their platform. Firefox is regarded as the best Web browser in terms of extensions – i.e. small browser add-ons which modify or add to existing functionality. It has hundreds of add-ons, which can be downloaded from here. But which are the best ‘web 2.0’ add-ons for Firefox?
Here are some of the best user scripts that you can use with Greasemonkey. If you are new to using the Firefox Greasemonkey extension, this is a great place to get started looking for scripts to help you get more out of the World Wide Web we live in.
New to Greasemonkey? Be sure to check out the Beginner’s Guide to Greasemonkey!
Greased Lightbox – Greased Lightbox is a Greasemonkey user script designed to enhance browsing on websites that link to images such as Google Image Search, Flickr, Gmail, and Facebook.

Flickr Rich Edit – Add limited rich editing capabilities (italic, bold, blockquote, link) to any input textarea in Flickr where you can use HTML.

del.icio.us Prettifier – A modified version of Gina Trapani’s del.icio.us Prettifier.
Smooth scroll – When clicking a link in a page that moves focus to another part of the same page, this script will make the page scroll, rather than just snap into view. This gives a somewhat better perception of how the in-page links have moved you in the document.

There has to be at least a million reasons to use Firefox, right? That is the idea behind the Web site, The Million Reasons. Here are a few good ones:
#120: Time is money. Firefox is super fast – like a jolt of lighting compared to Safari and Explorer – both painfully slowwwwwww.
#49: Updated Frequently
#206: it makes ramen (I didn’t know about this one!)
