    I have Adblock Plus, ServerSpy and ScribeFire (for blogging).

    I also use the Classic Compact theme so the buttons and tabs along the top take up 50% of the space! Really handy on my 12.1" screen laptop at home!!

    Don't ask "if" something can be done, for it can always be done. Rather instead ask "How" can it be done.

    Hi,

    My favorite addons are update scanner, Yet another smooth scrolling Download status bar and Flashblock.

    Update scanner monitors web pages for updates, notifies if a page changed and hovers the changes so that it is possible to see what on the specific site has changed.

    Yet another smooth scrolling does what the name says it adds a smoother scrolling to Firefox. But not only a smoother scrolling the main point why I use this addon the ability of different scrolling speeds when moving the mouse wheel faster or slower. This improves the navigation on a website.

    Download status bar: as already mentioned by a previous user I also like not to have a separate download window and this offers exactly that behavior

    Flashblock prevents flash elements on a website and instead it displays a play button so that you can allow a specific flash application at any time and of course it offers a whitelist for websites. I like this one because it prevents the flash application even from downloading and has only a small influence on the user comfort. I recognized that most of the time flash is used for commercials on websites and so this also decreases the cpu usage for displaying useless flash web commercials

    Have a lot of fun

    Some really great tips here - I'm still working my way through.

    Flashblock I knew about, but had never bothered to install - but it works really well, and unobtrusively.

    Compact Menu 2 and Zotero are quite brilliant suggestions for what I use my Eee for. Download statusbar is nice too (and fastdial I had already).

    Anyone used Hyperwords? Don't bother with the toolbar, but the context menu is really handy (though it kinda tries to replace the normal context menu with itself - once you've bludgeoned that idea out of it, it's good. )

    Guess the F11 key comes in handy on netbooks as well.

    But I revisited this topic to 'share'

    . Very nice for developing websites, after clicking the icon on the statusbar you can draw a square over the screen and it shows the dimensions of the square (Very nice for figuring out how much padding you need to align something )

    ColorZilla is cool to.. but I can't get it to work under openSUSE
    Has an eyedropper tool to select colors and can generate a pallete out of used colors on the page.
