coolest firefox plugin yet

When my photo nut friend suggested I try out PicLens, I was like, yeah sure, another photo plugin for firefox. Why waste the time? Man am I glad I did. This thing is the most incredible plugin I've used yet for FireFox (it's actually available for Explorer and other browsers also).

  • It's great for browsing your own photo galleries on Flickr
  • searching google images for just the right pic? Check!
  • searching for books on Amazon? Probably the best way to search Amazon integrated into the browser i've seen yet
  • YouTube? This is the best way to view them
Check it out.

These are also some of the other plugins I use daily:
  • TinyUrl plugin - saves tons of time!
  • UserAgent Switcher - tired of having to sign-up to read news stories? Just fake the server into thinking you're coming in as the Google Bot ;-)
  • Better Google addon's - makes viewing your GMail, Calendar, etc much nicer
One more nice-to-have add-on I use, but for OSX mac mail client: LetterBox - a plugin which allows you to have 3-column viewing for those nice wide-screen monitors.
