  1. Wow. I don’t use any of those, yet I have lots of things installed that I use every day…

    Closest I get is the HTML Validator that gives a tick mark at the bottom of the screen for valid pages, and an exclamation mark for warnings or red cross for errors. Clicking on that opens Firebug and YSlow to look at code etc.

    ShowIP shows the IP of visited websites, and with one click does various whois related stuff, but these are traditional extensions, rather than toolbars.

  2. Yeah, I don’t have any of them either, and don’t need them frankly. You used an interesting headline with the word:

    must-have

  3. Fantastic list, I need to give some of these a try.
    I also use Netvibes it also has some excellent search engines that you can add.
    Regards.
    Jeff.

  4. I’ve created this feature with predictad.com. Not only do they provide it for free, it also comes with a custom auto-complete that matches my websites content.

    I think this is an extremely important features for webmasters wanting to keep a tight relationship with the visitors that matter the most – the ones that are loyal and trust your content.

  5. You seen the new PPCWebSpy from Brad Callen? Firefox plugin that allows you to steal your competitors keywords. Free version gives 10 keyword results. Got some other neat stuff too.

  6. Firefox is a must have for SEO. I didn’t know about the GeoIP look up plugin. I’m going to add that one to my search bar.

  8. I have to admit, I tend to avoid using plugins because it almost seems like they manipulate my search results, some of them, what results i get and sometimes it's not accurate. Similar to using google search customization. So i turn everything off.
