In the absence of anything more interesting to write about, here are some Firefox extensions that I’ve recently installed and found useful or interesting:
- Effortless Good – automatically adds an affiliate tag for products bought at Amazon, with the income donated to 4 charities. Doesn’t overwrite normal affiliate links. Means you can do good with minimal effort.
- FireGPG – integrates GnuPG with Firefox, and in particular Gmail. You can encrypt, decrypt and sign the contents of a text box or emails. Requires GnuPG.
- ForceHTTPS – ensures that you’re using the encrypted (HTTPS) version of popular web sites like Gmail and PayPal where you share personal information.
- firefox-mac-pdf – allows PDF files to be viewed from within Firefox on a Mac, rather than in Preview. Mac-only.
- YouTube Comment Snob – hides idiotic comments on YouTube videos.
