Recommended Firefox Plugins

I have compiled a small list of Firefox plugins that come in handy.
First in the list come the plugins anyone might find handy; then, all the developer plugins.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-statusbar/">**Download Statusbar**</a>
I just love this one. Similar to Google Chrome’s default way of displaying downloads, except that way better. Lots of config options, too.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/xmarks-sync/">**Xmarks** </a>
Bookmarks in the cloud. Cross browser. I love this one because it's really browser independant: the developers aren't related to any browser. Been using it for years and it just works, I really recommend it.

<a href="http://www.instantfox.net/">**Instant Fox**</a>
Search from the address bar... for any site. (Type "y", press space, search in youtube).
Similar to Google Chrome’s native support for Tab-searching.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/grab-and-drag/">**Grab and Drag**</a>
Grab and scroll the page, the same way you do when reading PDF’s.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/menu-icons-plus/">**Menu Icons Plus**</a>
Just some eye-candy.

<a href="http://getfirebug.com/">**FireBug**</a>
I guess I don't really have to explain this one, do I?

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/measureit/">**Measure It**</a>
A ruler on screen. Comes in handy for web development.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/colorzilla/">**ColorZilla**</a>
Advanced eyedropper. Comes in handy for web development.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fireshot/">**FireShot**</a>
Take a screenshot of the web page. Upload it. All in one click. Also provides annotation and other image editing features.

<a href="http://fireftp.mozdev.org/ ">FireFTP</a>
A complete must. One of the best FTP tools out there.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/poster/">**Poster**</a>
Most popular tool for testing REST services.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/modify-headers/">**Modify Headers**</a>
Another tool for testing REST services. Relevant because Poster doesn’t save the settings, and you can always perform a GET by just navigating to the url.

<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/jsonview/">**JSON View**</a>
Get nice formatted json. Navigate to <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=Twitter%20API and see a mess? No longer.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/jsonview/">a json example</a> and see a mess? No longer.

I hope you found this list useful! I might edit it in the future, should I find any other significant plugins.

Thanks for reading! :)
