ErrorZilla: Useful error messages in Firefox

Ooh, I like this. ErrorZilla is a free add-on (i.e. extension) for Firefox by Eric Hamiter that replaces Firefox's error messages, which are out of the box not completely uninformative, but not entirely useful either, with something much more useful. In addition to the familiar "Try Again" button, ErrorZilla adds five more: Google Cache, Wayback, Ping, Trace, and Whois. I'm especially excited for the Google Cache and Wayback Machine links, which will (sometimes) allow you to view the contents of pages that are down or defunct. Ping, Trace(route), and Whois will perhaps be of less day-to-day use, but still handy for the more technically inclined. Brilliant.
