Do you know what Firefox and IE have in common? Basically they do the same thing: they help you browse the net. Yet, if you are involved in internet marketing, web design or SEO, Firefox can save you a lot of time. All you have to do is to install a few add-ons.
Here you can find the best 10 Firefox add-ons I currently use:
1. SEO for Firefox: it embeds important market research data directly into Google’s and Yahoo’s SERPS, saving you a lot of time. For all results on page, you can see the PR, domain age, Alexa rank, Technorati rank, number of links and many other tools.
2. Web Developer Toolbar: it installs a toolbar with lots of useful tools, allowing you for example to validate links on a page, or to validate the html code, or to display elements such as div order, anchors or abbreviations.
3. Firefox SearchStatus: it is a toolbar extension which allows you to see Google PageRank, Google Category, Alexa popularity ranking, Alexa incoming links, Alexa related links and backward links from Google, Yahoo! and MSN. The information is displayed in the bottom bar of the browser. It also offers a keyword density analyzer.
4. AdSense notifier: it displays your AdSense earnings in the bottom bar of the browser. The figures are updated every 30 minutes. This is great for statistics addicts (aka almost everybody)
5. ILQ Rating Tool: it gives you the ILQ (Inbound Link Quality) rating of the current site showing in your FF browser.
6. Customize Google: it enhances Google search results by adding extra information (like links to Yahoo, Ask.com, MSN etc) and removing unwanted information (like ads and spam). All features are optional and easily configured.
7. IE Tab: This is a great tool for web developers, since you can easily see how your web page displayed in IE with just one click and then switch back to Firefox.
8. Opera View: Open pages in Opera from Firefox and Mozilla context menus. Very useful for web developers.
9. Aardvark: utility for selecting elements and doing various actions on them. It can be used for cleaning up a page prior to printing it (by removing and isolating elements), or for making the page more readable.
10. popTart – Custom features for the Digg: Allows you to preview articles in a resizeable frame at the bottom of the browser and also optionally remove display elements from the website such as the header, footer and sidebars. You can also use your right/left arrow buttons to page through articles.
