I have seen a number of great articles on the web with people’s preferred Firefox addons. I agree with some them and have also found some new ones to play with. So to return the favor, so to speak, I am going to release what I think are the most useful Firefox addons in regard to web development and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
An additional bonus is that ‘Top 9’s’ always make good link bait in SEO (there’s a tip for you SEOs and blog writers!). This list is written in no particular order so lets start…
1) ‘All in One SideBar‘ this, and it has to be said is my favorite, allows you to access and manage all your Firefox addons through a side bar which is incorporated in to your browser. This is real over kill if you are a normal web user, but for a developer it isn’t half handy. Highly recommended.
3) ‘IE Tab‘ if you are a developer, you should already be using this as it allows you to switch to what your site looks like in IE while being in your Firefox browser.
5) ‘Live HTTP Headers‘ for advanced SEOs/developers, lets you see the header request in regards to web 2.0 technologies.https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3829
6) ‘Tabs open‘ relatively does what it says on the page. It is very useful when you have got as many tabs open as I have!
7) ‘Delicious Bookmark’ because like many developers I use multiple computers at home and at work. I uses Delicious so that I can easily access my bookmarks anywhere. Delicious Bookmark for Firefox, integrates the bookmarks into Firefox so that I can quickly add favorites to my Delicious account. To use this tool, you will need a
8 ) ‘ColorZilla‘ allows you to select a color from a given webpage and gives you it’s hex value. Great for design work.
9) ‘GA?’ This is a nice little SEO tool that allows you to see if Google Analytics is installed on a given site by a nicely colored icon in the bottom right of the screen.
All that is left to say is a massive thank you to the developers of the Firefox add-ons and keep up the good work. Firefox rocks ! If you think that you know of any better add-ons that I have missed, feel free to email me or leave a comment so other users can see what is available. Image Credit: Byassir
