Add-ons in FireFox 3.0b5
I decided to toss FireFox 3 on my workstation to see what broke—and unfortunately, almost everything broke.
I use quite a few add-ons; however, the most useful of my add-ons are all toast. 😦
- del.icio.us Bookmarks
- TinyUrl Creator
There are a few that seem to survive; however, without FireBug and del.icio.us, I just can’t survive.
That aside, there is one very cool 3.0b5 add-on—IETab. The add-on uses filters and/or the context menus to open up Internet Explorer tabs within FireFox. Now, when browsing SharePoint Portal or other MSIE-only sites, I never have to leave FireFox. It’s FANTASTIC.
I hope that, by the time 3.0 is released out of beta and into production, that a few more of the add-on developers have spent the time and upgraded their tools. There are so many quality add-ons available (the biggest advantage, I think, to IE) that I had to see those fall behind.
