FaviconizeTab

Now I have been using just favicons on my bookmark toolbar for a while now. To face the facts, it does make my browsing a little faster and a little less cluttered. What if you could do the same thing with your tabs though? The FaviconizeTab extension takes away the text on your tabs and replaces it with just the favicon from the Website in question.

Now my only question would be, what do you do when you visit a lot of Web sites that are the same? What do you do when you visit Web sites that have no favicon? This is a neat idea, but for long term use – it might need some tweaking.

Tabs Menu

Ever wanted a drop-down menu of all your open tabs? The Tabs Menu Firefox extension does just that. This was not one of my must have features in Firefox, but now that I have tried it – it isn’t that bad at all.

The menu lists all the tabs contained in the current window so that it’s easier to see the full titles of tabs and switch between them when the tab’s title becomes too small to read or the tabs have disappeared off the right-hand side.

Navigational Sounds

One thing that I have not missed since moving over to Firefox is all the beeps and bloops Internet Explorer makes while you are navigating through your Web pages. Some people may like getting these dinging sounds though, even if they just make me feel a little dingy. That is where the Navigational Sounds extension comes into play.

Digger

Don’t be fooled by the name, this extension has nothing to do with Digg.com. It is though a great tool to actually make that “Go” button a little more useful!

Allows you to navigate to parent directories in a URL and climb through subdomains (e.g. go to http://example.com/ from http://sub.example.com/), all from a context menu on the Go button (and on the toolbar button provided by Go Up, if you have that extension installed).

Another MySpace Toolbar

Yes, even I have a profile on MySpace! The question is who doesn’t these days? If you want to be able to have a little more usability built into Firefox while browsing the MySpace Web site, this is the extension made for you.

ToolbarMS is a Firefox toolbar created to provide a quick navigation menuing system for the MySpace website. It not only provides quick links to the most popular features of MySpace but also has a dynamic menuing system that can expand and adapt as MySpace changes.

MileWideBack

I love to see Firefox extensions that really add neat and cool features that I might have not thought of before. The MileWideBack extension makes the left side of your Firefox window a really big “go back” button. All you need to do is click on the left border of the window, and you are back to where you were before.

Drag de Go

How would you like to change your navigation habits? Now I can’t change the way you move your feet, but I can give you a Firefox extension that will dramatically change the way you move Online. What do you need? All you need to get this done is the Drag de Go Firefox extension.

WebMemo

How many times can you honestly say that you have used the history feature in Firefox? I have gone back and forward a lot, but I don’t really use the history. Am I weird or are you the same? Well, I have found a new Firefox extension that might get me a little more interested in using it again.

Firefox 2.0 Beta Fixes Tab Overflow

What the heck is tab overflow? I was confused as well:

By this point I think most people know the frustration that I had with how Mozilla handled the scrolling tab-bar in Firefox but it looks like they have found a good solution. By default I can now have a much more reasonable number of tabs open, in the area of 20-30, before the tabs start to scroll. Thank you Mozilla!

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? I run into this all the time when you read through Web hosting terms of service agreements or acceptable use policies. The Back to Top Firefox extension gives your Firefox browser a kick in the right direction to get back to the start.
