  1. This post has just saved me a lot of headaches. What wil be next? Thunderbird plugs?

    🙂

  2. Didn’t know about the PDF plugin – thanks a bunch!

    The search status is also handy

  3. Nic – I don’t actually use any plugins in Thunderbird I’m afraid.

    Joonas and Diarmaid – the PDF download extension is the sort of plugin I forget I have until it pops up and lets me know it stopped the browser from slowing to a crawl. One day people will realise pdf “web pages” are not good and stick to old fashioned html.

  4. I’ve got a few favorites…

    1. Del.icio.us Bookmarks – A bookmark replacement that hooks in nicely with the Delicious service. Kind of scary when first installed, but has worked fine for me since.

    2. HTML Validator – Check if a page is valid or not without any extra clicks. Good for going through a site quickly.

    3. Google Toolbar – This one is a given and that’s why you didn’t list it, right? 🙂

  6. Marios – The del.icio.us bookmarks are nice but I tend to use the bookmarklet thingies. HTML validator is nice but not essential, and I never use the Google Toolbar – sorry.

  7. I kind of like Firefox, but my favorite browser is Maxthon by a long shot. The thing is that maybe dozens of custom Firefox entensions -including a decent adblocker- are already built in by default and belive or not it’s faster and more stable/resource-friendly than IE. It used to be named myie2 actually. It’s an ass-kicking IE wrapper.
    Well I don’t want to get killed by FF fanatics (if any around) saying more words but Maxthon certainly deserves a shot, remember that.
