Screengrab

Screengrab! saves webpages as images… It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame… basically it saves webpages as images – either to a file, or to the clipboard.

This is my #1 plugin hands down!…This is my little FREE secret weapon to getting ranked pretty well for my keywords against HUGE competition with my young blog.

I’m sure a few of you already know about Onlywire but havn’t put it to use.  I’m telling you now, if you are on a budget and can’t afford a stand alone bookmarking software then Onlywire has to be one of your new tools to use!

Ok that’s my list, and yes there are 100’s of FF plugins besides these, but these are my top 15, that I use on a regular basis. Now with these plugins you will be on your wat to being a better blogger, and help you be efficient and keep you on a regular posting schedule.

What you think of my list? Any plugins you would have added?

    John Good info. I used to really like firefox, until I started using Chrome. Firefox just seems to take up so much memory.

    On a side note, the link at the bottom – “Click Here to add to Twitter and RT” the bit.ly url is incorrect. The included url does not include the y in bit.ly

    I will definitely try some of these out.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    TY glad you liked the list. Yea I have been on FF for years, and lately it has been driven me crazy.

    But I have alll my info here, it would be such a pain in the butt to move to another browser.

    Also thanks for the heads up on the broken link,lol all fixed now.

  • http://www.shoutmeloud.com/ Harsh Agrawal

    Great list of useful plugins but you missed my fav one easy comment firefox extension… I love it.. and Im sure you will also love it :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I actually use EC but couldn't find a good picture for it, and I had another add-on that I use even more, so it didn't make the list. Should of did my top 16 list :)

  • http://www.bronsonharrington.com Gnuboss

    I was really impressed with the way that Zemanta finds additional content, but the additional code snippets that it generates and includes was a deal breaker for me.

    The others like the Link Analysis tool and tab mix plus are outright winners in my book.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I agree that Zemanta input extra content, but I just remove it like the reblog button and the extra info they add when you add Related posts.. but other then that works great and saves me alot of time.

    Tab mix plus is great since I always have like 30 tabs open at a time..lol

    I use some of these and I love them. Add ons are one of the reason why I love Firefox so much.
    I have 2 questions:
    1. How do you use Zemanta, I understand it gives you relevant images or video, but you still need to check copyrights, right? One of my bigger worries when it comes to my websites is that I am very careful not to use something that I am not allowed to.
    2. What about Screengrab, how do you personally use it, for what?
    Thanks

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I like FF for the same reasons.

    If the image is online, then it is free to be used.. so no copyright issues. But Zemanta will find you images from search, so no copyright issues there either.

    Screengrab is if you want to take an image off your site ot another site.. cool tool.

  • http://www.samui-art-gallery.com Rose

    Hi John,
    What a great post indeed! I am using most of your tools but I seem to missed the best one; Zemanta (best one for me. lol). Thank you for sharing.
    And yes, I am getting crazy lately with Firefox too, but I still can’t leave it.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Glad you like the post Rose. Yea FF can get a lil annoying lol but overall it still has to much to walk away from still.

  • http://bivori.com/ Suresh Khanal

    Ahh! It appears it’s been quite some time I’ve not used Firefox. Once the Chrome supported extensions, I’m rather using Chrome for long. With your post about useful extensions I’m again tempted to revert to Firefox!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com/ John Paul

    Yea, I think Chrome has come a long way and I use it alot more now too. But I still use FF as my main browser. I think im just used to it and have it set up just the way I like, it’s hard to leave it haha

  • http://bivori.com/ Suresh Khanal

    That’s perfectly fine John. It is often convenient to use the tools that’s we’ve mastered. I preferred Chrome just because it is less memory hungry for my uses :)

  • http://marcwillow.blogspot.com/ Marc Willow

    Oh wow so helpful! I always use Firefox, but actually I never read about all these plugins. Thanks for sharing!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com/ John Paul

    They are all great Marc.
