Until now, every Firefox add-on that promises to give me awesome abilities to look things up when I highlight a word have been mediocre at best. The Apture Highlights add-on for Firefox really is a game changer. It allows you to highlight a phrase and get background information from Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter and more – on the same page. It also gives me this ability without looking tacky or sticking out like a sore thumb.

Google recently released an excellent web-based front end to the link shortening service they provide, but no Firefox add-on to compliment it. Have no fear, because goo.gl lite is here.

For years now, I have been highlighting the best Firefox add-ons out there for you all to check out and use, if needed. However, not often do I go that extra mile to help you replace an add-on that I don’t think is that handy to have. Amazingly enough, ImTranslator is an add-on that have enjoyed a lot of popularity (3,875,310 downloads to be exact) however I think there is a better solution out there, that doesn’t even need an add-on for Firefox to be used.
