Best firefox experience

I want to highlight some of the best Firefox plugins out there, that have made my experience with the web and facebook.com more pleasant :)

First up is URL Link, this add-on make it possible to mark any url within firefox, right click on it and open it in a new window or tab, really worth having.

Second up is, GMail Checker, which is a light add on to keep an eye on your inbox and other "folder" you may have and wish to monitor.

Get it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3179

Next up is Download Statusbar, which is a plugin that removed that anoying download window, that pop-up every time you download a file. Instead it will show your files download status in the button of the screen in a small tab like bar. I really love this one.

Get it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/26

The next one I'm going to write about is Greasemonkey, which enabled allot of other "plugins" in form of Java scripts, that can be used to improve your web experience by adding or removing features from websites.

Get Greasemonkey here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748
