Back in the day, I wrote up a list of useful Firefox extensions. Let’s look at what I’m using these days.

General-purpose

Better Popup Blocker

This extension is fantastic at blocking unwanted popups. More details here. Downside: it isn’t on the Chrome store, any more; you can find it at http://bayfiles.net/file/1ixd2/w6c4Wb/Better_Pop_Up_Blocker_2_1_6.crx.

Hover Zoom

Why click through to something when you can just mouse over it? hoverzoom.net

Vimium

Allows you to use vim-style keyboard shortcuts to navigate webpages. Chrome Web Store: Vimium.

Project Naptha

I’ve had mixed results with this one – it performs optical character recognition on images in your browser, theoretically allowing you to select, copy and translate text in images. It’s worth a look, at the very least. Chrome Web Store: Project Naptha.

Website-specific

The Camelizer

Shows Amazon prices over time. Chrome Web Store: The Camelizer.

Enhanced Steam

Shows you what games you own and price comparisons from other websites. Check it out at enhancedsteam.com.
