Google search and tweak software

Great tools but it's still a long, long way from web-page labels. It's can't be so hard to tag the bookmark with the META keywords? Give the bookmark a pile of labels in 1 click, having to do this by hand is making us bookmark almost nothing atm.

My thanks to the developers of this list of tools they make Firefox usefull and the web a better place. Hope you have a good time.

Firefox extensions to search and tweak:

The Lookahead extension for the Firefox browser was created to provide for efficient usage of time while a user performs Google searches. extension homepage
PRGooglebar is a modification of the Googlebar extension for Mozilla and Firefox. It adds the long awaited Pagerank to the toolbar extension homepage
This extension provides a comprehensive UI for changing a number of the hidden tabbed browsing preferences in Firefox. It also provides the ability to control how internal and external links are opened in the browser and how the browser will react when links are sent to it. extension homepage
SearchBox AutoUpdater is an extension for the browser FireFox. This extension enables to automatically update the searchbox words when you're searching directly in the search engine. extension homepage
Normally when you open lots of tabs in Firefox they each become narrower and narrower, and eventually just disappear off the end of the tab bar. With the flowing tabs extension installed the tabs instead wrap around onto multiple rows when required. Do not try to use this in conjunction with Tabbrowser Extensions, as it will break. Tabbrowser Extensions includes this functionality anyway. Don't use in conjuction with Tab X, or each tab will end up occupying a line of its own. extension homepage
The Googlepreview extension inserts preview images (thumbnails) of web sites, Amazon products and stock charts into the Google and yahoo.com search results pages. Thumbnails are provided by thumbshots.org and alexa.com . extension homepage
Scrollbar Anywhere Extension Scrollbar Anywhere allows to scroll the page as if the scrollbar is under your mouse pointer. Just hold the right (or any other) mouse button down and move the mouse. Enjoy! extension homepage
