I added Adblock Plus and Flash Block. They're staying. The same can't be said for No Script.

Yeah, Adblock (or Adblock plus) and Flash Block are a killer combo for both FF and Chrome.

There is a send to Kindle app which is nice.

Why O&A don't have adblock on their computers in the studio is beyond me.

I'm not too big on these extensions and plugins after reading a couple of user agreements. Some of them monitor what sites you visit and phone home with the information. So just make sure it's part of some open source project or they are taking donations. If they have some company letterhead, then beware. If you don't mind sharing that info then thats cool too.

* All capital letters
* No capital letters
* Doesn't start with a capital letter
* Excessive punctuation (!!!! ????)
* Excessive capitalization
* Profanity

So affective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is amazingly affective - I didn't think filtering out simple lazy typing would make such a difference types of comments I was reading but it does. Of course there are a few trolls who type carefully, but they are few and far between.

It also allows you to choose not to see any comments, which could well be the wisest decision of all.

They probably don't have privileges to install anything on the computers and are stuck with IE.

As far as add-ons, I have Downthemall, DownloadHelper, and Seach Google Image.

Someone should tell them to DL Firefox mobile. Since it's made for phones, it doesn't go through the whole admin permission shit. Should be able to DL it regardless of admin blocks.
