Firebug would be useful for people who are into programming or have knowledge about programming. This extension comes very handy for me, since I have to work mostly on code. Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page.

7.) Google Shortcuts

This Add-on comes very handy, since I mostly use many Google product and services, This will remain on the toolbar in dropdown menu as a shortcut to different Google product and services. Its like One click and Go. Display all Google services as buttons or as a space-saving dropdown menu next to your address bar. Reach services like Gmail, Google reader, Google maps, Google calendar, and many more in a single click from your browser.

5.) Skipscreen

One of my favorite when it comes to downloading files from File Sharing Site like Rapidshare, Mediafire, 4shared,etc. Skipscreen helps to skip the countdown page and directly allows to download files without waiting. Skips unnecessary pages on sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload, zShare, Mediafire, and more. Try it out, or watch a demo at http://www.skipscreen.com
Why click through ad-laden pages and wait for countdowns when your computer can do it for you.

Annoyed by adverts? Troubled by tracking? Bothered by banners? Install Adblock Plus now to regain control of the internet and change the way that you view the web.

3.) Noscript
