    Firefox

    You have said it st39.6. After Firefox, IE is almost dead for me. The extensions are incredible! I can't live without them also.

    Some interesting extensions:

    VideoDownloader integrated on browser
    DownThemAll!, integrated download manager
    Gmail Space
    FoxyTunes, to control media player from browser
    Torrent Search Bar
    Sage, RSS reader
    Download Statusbar, gives you information about downloads without opening the downloads window
    FireFTP, to access FTP servers from the browser
    GooglePreview, shows a preview of the pages found in a search on Google
    Download Embedded, quoting: "Downloads all or selected embedded objects on a webpage. Can be used for downloading movies, mp3s, flash, quicktime, or other embedded files."
    McAfee SiteAdvisor, an useful extension that notifies you when a site is potentiallly dangerous for your computer
    Firefox Extension Backup Extension (FEBE), to backup your extensions

    Also check the Firefox 2.0 roadmap from Mozilla.

    Some other handy Firefox Extensions:

    Adblock - pretty self-explanatory... block ads, or even ad servers, from Firefox.
    ForecastFox Enhanced - Weather conditions, forcast, and radar in a handy toolbar
    Linky - Opens all (or selected) links in a page in new tabs (limit 99 links at a time... yes, I have opened that many before... try opening 99 IE Windows at once and see what happens ).
    Popup Count - Firefox blocks popups automatically, this tells you how many (my Windows computer has blocked over 8,000 popups but I don't remember when I installed it... my Linux laptop has blocked 240 since early July)
    Flashblock - Block flash files from displaying... unless you want to see them
    User Agent Switcher - Tricks web servers into thinking you are running a different browser. Comes in handy sometimes when visiting sites that supposedly don't work with anything other than IE. Doesn't work all the time, but it has come in handy for me on several occasions.

    I am also a big fan of the Firefox Toolbar, but apparently it is no longer available. It is a search toolbar that you can add nearly any search engine you want to, and then they are available in a drop-down menu. Similar to, but more powerful than, the built-in search bar that Firefox already has.

    Thumbs up One interesting extension...

    Chinesepera-kun: Chinese Popup Dictionary

    Simply put, this extension will allow you read Chinese on websites. This is useful for just getting around a site, or even MORE useful if you are studying Chinese. It works with both Simplified and Traditional characters, and also allows you to export words to a file to study later.
    It is the biggest Firefox extension I have found until now: 6749 KB

    It is here.

    Arrow TiX Now! - Fission - Temporary Inbox - Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics and more

    TiX Now!

    It can stop waiting timer of rapidshare and get direct download links from nhacso.net, tialia.com, etc and can solve the MegaUpload full-download-slots problem.
    Just very simple: Install the extension and click on the T icon in status bar at the right-bottom corner.
    Direct-link will be saved to your clipboard or it can stop the waiting-timer, full download-slots...


    Fission

    Fission combines address bar and progress bar, making the progress bar more visible and allowing for a nice visual effect.


    Temporary Inbox

    This extension generates random disposable email addresses. Use these email addresses for registration in forums, adult sites or whatever.
    The email addresses don't require any registration. This is an easy way to avoid spam, because the spamer will never know your private email address .. only the temporaryinbox.com email address. And there the emails will be deleted after 6 hours.
    Avoiding spam is sooo easy!


    Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics

    This extension adds an item called 'Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics' to the Tools Menu in FireFox.

    It performs the following tasks:

    - Display your public IP address and your public domain name
    - Perform download and upload speed tests

    If you have troubles with your broadband connection, it can:

    - Troubleshoot and isolate problems by performing a couple of diagnostic tests (NIC card, local gateway, DHCP server, DNS server, web site)
    - Display local IP configurations (private IP address, MAC address, default gateway, DNS server, DHCP server, routing table, ARP table, active connections)

    The diagnostic and configuration display features only work on Windows


    Show Picture

    For those people who used to use Internet Explorer and the option Show Picture. This extension, also called Show Picture, loads and displays the selected image without reloading the page.

    Now supports German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.


    Calculator

    Calculator has an interface similar to Microsoft Powertoy Calculator and it offers great features like history, conversions, many functions... And it's a great open source replacement to the calculator included in Windows accessories! (translated in more than 17 languages)
    Save Image in Folder...

    Easily save images in personally customized folders.


    New Tab Button on Tab Bar
    Tabs Menu
    Tab To Window
    iMacros for Firefox
    Ctrl Tab Preview

    IMDb Preview 0.4

    Preview movie & actor posters when hovering over their IMDb links...

    The extension is useful if you too sometimes encounter on IMDb (or other sites), a movie title or an actor that you can't recognize by name. Instead of going into its full details page, you can now just stand on the link, and quickly see a preview of the poster right next to your mouse.
