    Do you use Firefox? What plugins can't you live without?

    How many BF.net people use Mozilla Firefox as their browser of choice? If you don't- you should try it, it's free and most people like it a lot better than Explorer once they try it.

    If you do use FF- What Add-ons do you use?

    I use FF at home and right now i'm rocking a few addons with more on the way-

    •Farky*
    •Farkode*
    •Farkit* *these 3 are only useful if you surf the News Agregator www.Fark.com

    •second search
    •converter
    •chroma tabs
    •GDirections

    Track me not is a great dataminer busting tool, it sends random Google searches and totally screws up their data!

    I don't like firerox. To be honest I prefer IE over any others, I have tried just about every flavour since lynx too.

    I can't live without the tabs. Still use IE occasionally since some pages won't load with Firefox, either because the browser itself or some plugin, but thats usually rare...

    Ya I am definately not a tabbed person. I don't find it a very intuitive interface for me. Maybe I will give it a try again, it has been a couple of years.

    I like firefox, especially portable firefox. As far as plugins though, I don't use many beyond the ones that allow you to view Flash, shockwave, etc.

    I do have a spell checker, it underlines misspelled words and offers suggestions. Probably can't live without

    I don't like Fire Fox,it interferes too much.I have Road Runner,AOL is free,AOL has a better,less intrusive firewall.You may not have that or a similar option.In my case Fire Fox duped the AOL as did the Window's.

    There are several plugins that sort your bookmarks automagically, that's the only one I can't live without. Although a cookie manager/blocker is helpful. Also StumbleUpon is great fun!
    Tour Journals, Blog, ride pix

    I'm in the celtic folk fusion band Baroque and Hungry. "Mended", our new full-length studio album, is now available for download.
