Firefox extension updates

[textile]

Currently installed:
* “googletoolbar”:http://googlebar.mozdev.org/ 0.9.0.16. Can’t live without this
* “All-In-One Gestures”:http://perso.wanadoo.fr/marc.boullet/ext/extensions-en.html 0.11.1. And this
* “SwitchProxy Tool”:http://jgillick.nettripper.com/switchproxy/ 1.3. Make life easier cuz I VPN to my school a lot
* “Web Panel Enhancer”:http://editcss.mozdev.org/indexwpe.html 0.1.5. Opens downloads, entensions, in side panel
* “DownloadWith”:http://downloadwith.mozdev.org/ 0.0.7. Opens my Reget Deluxe to download big files
* “Launcy”:http://gemal.dk/mozilla/launchy.html 3.1.0. Mostly use this to check how ichris.ws looks in IE and Opera
* “AdBlock”:http://adblock.mozdev.org/ 0.5.2+ *Awesome!*
* “McSearchPreview”:http://docs.g-spotting.net/code/mozilla_extensions/mcsearchpreview/ 1.1. Adds preview to Google and a few other search engines. Works better than “GooglePreview”:http://ackroyd.de/googlepreview/ .
** If there’s no preview, default image is shown
** Makes thumbnail of the front page of a domain and uses that for sub pages too.
* “Gmail Notifier”:http://nexgenmedia.net/extensions/ 0.3.3. Still not using my Gmail that much, but it’s nice to have (because it’s the only account I cannot check with Thunderbird). Would be nice if it’ll just connect to Gmail automatically without me clicking it everytime, though.
* “Paste and Go”:http://tecwizards.de/mozilla/ 0.3.1. Lets me paste URI in the address bar and automatically opens it. Saves 0.5 second and a few muscle flex.
* “Bookmarks Synchronizer”:http://cgi29.plala.or.jp/~mozzarel/addon/firefox0_9/bookmarksftp/ 0.9.6. Synch the bookmark with a copy on my server through FTP. For someone on the run a lot.
* “Down Them All”:http://www.jimmy2k.it/dta/ 0.2.1. Download every links on a page. Would be so awesome if this could work with DownloadWith
* “Sage”:http://sage.mozdev.org/ 1.2. *wow!* A much better RSS aggregator than the old one in side panel.
** *”livemark”:http://blog.codefront.net/archives/2004/07/13/rss_feed_integration_in_firefox.php won’t cut it for RSS.* This is more the answer.
** show feeds content in main window now, so images in feed works.
** import/export OPML. Actually the exporting still kinda sucks, but importing works for me.
** Technorati link button. Convenient.
** make use of autodiscovery for easily adding of feeds.
** Works with RSS 0.92, 1.0, 2.0, and Atom (0.3?) now.
** Alt+S open
** Bye bye “FeedDemon”:www.bradsoft.com/feeddemon/ ~~~~
* “BugMeNot”:http://extensions.roachfiend.com/ 0.3. Provides working passwords for sites that, although free, wants your detail.

Firefox is almost always on on my machine, so I guess it’s worthwhile to equip it well.
