Firefox Extensions For Bloggers

We are always on the lookout for a little extra productivity here at Performancing, let’s take a look at some top Firefox Extensions for bloggers..

Extensions are small add-ons that add new functionality to Firefox. They can add anything from a toolbar button to a completely new feature. They allow the application to be customized to fit the personal needs of each user if they need additional features, while keeping Firefox small to download.

So why should a blogger care? Well these little extensions add features that make routine tasks quicker and easier, and anything that makes your life easier makes you more productive and more productivity means you get more done in less time. We could all do with a bit more time, right?

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a Microsoft Fanboy but one feature of Firefox made me switch and that was the extensions. Internet Explorer just doesn’t have the rich availability of community designed extensions that FF has.

These are the extensions I think are most useful to bloggers, with your help I would like to build a list, over time I think we can build quite a resource here!

  1. Session Saver

    Close your browser, open it up again and all the tabs, text and pages you were browsing are still there, even if there is a power cut! Browsers crash on me so often this really is a safety net.

  2. MiniT

    Adds drag and drop capability to your tabs so you can order them how you like!

  3. Xinha Here

    This extension allows rich html editing of any form text box right from your browser. Great for blog software or comments forms where HTML is allowed but no fancy editing tools are available.

  4. CopyURL

    Find a post you want to blog about and use CopyURL to copy the address plus the title or a snippet of text with customisation.

  5. Greasemonkey

    The Daddy of all Firefox extensions, an extension that allows you to extend FF! There are lots of Greasemonkey scripts and it is easy enough to create your own with a modicum of Javascript experience.

Yours?
