    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.

    - forecastfox - weather on the status bar

    - menu editor - modify entries from the tool menu (file/edit/view/etc)

    - status-4-evar - puts the status bar back on the bottom of the window

    - oldbar - uses the classic url bar, instead of the super bar (or whatever its called)

    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.
