How to enhance your web browser
8 AUG, 2011, 04.37AM IST, ET BUREAU

Whatever web browser you use - it can be made better. Hitesh Raj Bhagat & Karan Bajaj round up some free extensions and plug-ins exclusive to each browser that will help boost your online experience and productivity Firefox Copy Plain Text : There may be times when you need to copy text off a website for reference. Just selecting text and copy-pasting it might also copy the html code of the site. To prevent this, use Copy Plain Text. It integrates into the right-click menu and lets you copy selected text in simple text format, ignoring all the code. Download Statusbar : Normally, a download window pops up every time you start a download in Firefox - but this can be an annoyance. With this plug-in, all downloads show up on the status bar at the bottom - each with its own progress bar. You can view download speeds and hover over the progress bar for more information.

Down Them All : Downthemall is an easy to use download manager that makes downloading multiple things a breeze. It can really come in handy if you want to download multiple items from a single page - there are advanced features like 'file queue', 'download speed limit' and 'download all links'. NoScript: Browsing on the Internet has its share of security issues. With Noscript installed, you can set filters to browse securely. It gives options to allow specified sites to run scripts on your computer or show pop-up windows with links. You can even restrict launch of audio/video and flash content. Safari Ultimate Status Bar : This plug-in enhances the standard Safari browser by providing information that the standard status bar does not show. It shows the full URL of any shortened URL, file types and size of the file to be downloaded. It auto hides when not in use.

Safari Omnibar : Omnibar simplifies using Safari by combining the address bar and the search box into one single bar (just like Google Chrome). By default, typing in the address bar triggers a Google search, but you can also change it by right clicking on the bar. PithHelmet : PithHelmet blocks ads and other irrelevant content on web pages from appearing while surfing the Internet. You can set rules for specific type of links and content to be blocked across websites.

Internet Explorer Mouse Gestures : This simple-to-use and highly customisable add-on allows you to set various commands for most common functions of the browser such as 'back', 'new tab' and so on. It also comes with an editor to make your own gestures. Quero Toolbar : This toolbar for Internet Explorer not only allows you to search and visit websites but also acts as a pop up blocker. It replaces the address bar and adds various features including a compact button layout and the option to hide flash content. ieSpell : This plugin scans for spelling errors as you type. It works across forms, blogs, social networking sites, allows you to add words to its database in custom dictionaries and even allows you to check for definitions. Opera Easy Sticky Note : As the name suggests, this plug-in for the browser lets you create sticky notes inside the browser window itself. You can save different notes for different websites and as notes are stored locally on your PC - you can even access them offline.
