Improve Firefox's text-finding abilities with Mozilla Labs Find Suggest (Download Squad)

Nov 8th 2010 12:22PM I still don't see any problem with Firefox's Find feature. And if the problem is seeing what's highlighted, this doesn't seem to solve anything (and it seems pretty pointless in general). I'll be happily using Firefox's Find -- which actually puts highlighted words into the Find box when you press ctrl+f, unlike Opera or Chrome's (and probably a lot of others').

Firefox reshuffles default search engines, but Google and Yahoo! still top the list (Download Squad)

Oct 6th 2010 4:02PM Haven't used that box in years. Always add any searches I want by adding a keyword for them with the right click context menu, then using the URL bar. Apart from those who don't know how to do this, I have no idea why anyone would bother with the separate search box.

Show File Size for Firefox shows you file sizes before you download (Download Squad)

Sep 13th 2010 3:22PM I don't see how the fact that it requires an add-on to do this is an issue, since the add-on exists.

Forget the potato, Opera 10.6 speeds past Google Chrome 6 (Download Squad)

Jun 4th 2010 12:18PM I used Opera occasionally about a year ago since it was so lightweight, but since Opera 10, it's actually been using more RAM than Firefox (for me at least).
I don't notice any speed differences between the two, and there lots of little things which annoy me about Opera, or features that it doesn't include (some of these can probably be fixed/added but I can't be bothered and that still leaves the rest): the autoscrolling, things happening on mouse-clicks rather than mouse-releases, not being able to right-click on the back button, the size and layout of the navigation bar/tabs, context menus appearing for highlighting things, not being able to drag and drop highlighted things etc, and I prefer having very few features to start with, and being able to add anything I want to having quite a few features (very few of which I use) and not being able to add much (although I would actually even prefer Firefox vanilla to other browsers).

There is now a Google Dictionary (Download Squad)

Dec 5th 2009 1:07PM Same here. This seems to be slightly more developed though, which is nice to see.

Five essential addons for new Firefox users (Happy fifth birthday, Firefox!) (Download Squad)

Nov 9th 2009 2:45PM I've never found Greasemonkey all that useful, to be honest. I can see how it could be mildly handy, but not essential (at least for me).
I've found Linkification, TinyMenu (or Personal Menu) and Tab Mix Plus to be more essential. Also, SecureLogin is another one I'm finding very useful.

Make your Firefox more like Google Chrome with Pin Tabs (Download Squad)

Nov 5th 2009 1:25PM Yeah, I've been using Faviconize Tab for a while.
Is Pin Tab better or something?

Google explains what a web browser is, treats you a bit like an idiot (Download Squad)

Oct 8th 2009 4:21PM Actually, I think the video was just made by a random Googler.

Firefox 3.7 to replace menu bar with Chrome-like page, tools menus (Download Squad)

Sep 23rd 2009 2:58PM The great thing about Firefox is, of course, the fact that you will be able to change this in many ways. I'm fine with the simple Tiny Menu menu, so I'll use that.
