3 Essential Firefox Add-ons for Geeks

We have talked about so many Firefox add-ons till date but all on a sudden,I realized today that we missed out on the geeky aspect of Firefox add- ons. So without further ado, lemme present to you, 3 very useful apps for geeks.

1. FireBug

FireBug just makes web development so much easier with features like JavaScript debugging, providing network data, giving you in depth style information and a whole lot more. I was amazed at the potential of a small app inside a browser. Firebug is really worth mentioning and I can not but recommend it to you though I guess most of  you have fired it up from old times.


2. HttpFox

HttpFox is a much more powerful network monitoring add-in which will provide you with truck loads of information about what’s going in and out of your browser.

One annoyance with FireBug is the need to force a re-post of values to see what the response to a POST action was. This is where HttpFox helps out - it just does everything all the time.


3. S3Fox

S3 is a great services for storing large amounts of data and making it available on the web in a very inexpensive manner. The downside is that tooling support is somewhat limited which is exactly the problem that S3Fox resolves.

Once installed it’s like getting a file explorer for S3 right inside your browser. Manage ACL’s, upload files, do everything you need.


If you have anything else to add to this list, feel free to comment to us.
