Most essential Mozilla firefox addons for Bloggers


I have been blogging on several blogs and topics from about 2 years and I mostly use mozilla firefox as my browser. In this time I spent on blogging, I found some really useful addons for mozilla firefox which really helped me as a blogger and allowed me to blog with greater efficiency, clearity, ease
and effectiveness. Now I am releasing a small list of Mozilla firefox addons which a blogger should give a try.

Here is a list of essential Mozilla firefox addons which a blogger should never escape :

Search Status :

Search Status allows you to see how any and every website in the world is performing. Designed for the highly specialised needs of search engine marketers, this toolbar provides extensive search-related information about a site, all conveniently displayed in one discreet and compact toolbar. Search Status displays the Google PageRank, Alexa rank, Compete ranking and SEOmoz Linkscape mozRank anywhere in your browser, along with fast keyword density analyser, keyword/nofollow highlighting, backward/related links, Alexa info, Google cache of the page, related links and more. The best place to put it is below right of your status bar in firefox.

Scribe Fire Blog Editor :

ScribeFire is a full-featured blog editor that integrates with your browser and lets you easily post to your blog. You can drag and drop formatted text from pages you are browsing, take notes, upload images, and post to multiple blogs. It makes blogging superfast..Yeah I mean superfast. You don't have to visit your blog each time you want to write a post.
The currently supported blogging platforms on ScribeFire are:

Fire Shot : 

FireShot is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages (entirely or just visible part). Unlike other extensions, this plugin provides a set of editing and
annotation tools, which let users quickly modify web captures and insert text annotations and graphical annotations. Such functionality will be especially useful for web designers, testers and content reviewers.

The captures taken and edited by Fireshot can be:

- uploaded to FREE public screenshot hosting
- saved to disk (PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP)
- printed
- copied to clipboard
- e-mailed
- sent to configurable external editor for further processing.
You can watch a demo of Fireshot in action.

Search superfast the image you are looking for your post. Cooliris is simply the fastest and most stunning way to browse photos and videos from the Web or your desktop. Effortlessly scroll a "3D Wall" of your content from Facebook, Google Images, YouTube, Flickr, and hundreds more. Enjoy a lightning fast, cinematic way to browse photos and videos from the Web or your desktop. Launch Cooliris from your browser toolbar, or visit a supported site and click the Cooliris icon that appears as you mouseover images and videos.
Cooliris works on hundreds of websites including:
Google Images, YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, MySpace, Photobucket, DeviantArt, KodakGallery, Picasa Web Albums, Smugmug, FotoTime, Fotki Getty Images, Bebo, Hi5, Friendster, Yahoo Image Search, Ask Image Search, Live Image Search, AOL Image Search, etc

Color Zilla :

ColorZilla is very much helpful when you are designing a template of editing it. It is also very helpful when you are creating a adsense unit to put into your website. Colorzilla has an advanced eyedropper, colorPicker, page zoomer and other colorful goodies. With ColorZilla you can get a color reading from any point in your browser, quickly adjust this color and paste it into another program.
You can Zoom the page you are viewing and measure distances between any two points on the page. The built-in palette browser allows choosing colors from pre-defined color sets and saving the most used colors in custom palettes. DOM spying features allow getting various information about DOM elements quickly and easily.

ResizR :

ResizR is a nifty, free and very useful little helper. ResizR allows you to resize an image from your local computer or the web. Often you do not need more than just resizing an image on the fly.
Before ResizR you required a desktop software to do this - heavy applications which can do much more than just resizing an image. ResizR changes the game - it's much easier. Select an image - choose the width - rotate optionally.

FeedBurner Subscribers :

FeedBurner Subscribers is a handy add-on for monitoring your RSS
readers and hits to your RSS feed. Bloggers will find this add-on
extremely valuable because you can track feed readers right from your
browser. Best place to put this addon is in firefox's status bar.

Google Bookmarks Button Reloaded :

Bookmarks play a key role in a blogger's life and most of us use an online bookmark manager like google bookmarks. So if you have installed google toolbar in mozilla firefox, just because you want to access google bookmarks. Try this addon. It is the best google bookmark add-on ever: neat, clean and simple.

Read It Later :

The Read It Later Firefox extension allows you to save pages of interest to read later.
It eliminates cluttering of bookmarks with sites that are merely of a one-time interest. Save pages to a reading list to read when you have time. Offline Reading Mode - Read the items you’ve saved for later on the plane, train, or anywhere. Access Anywhere - Manage your list in any browser, on any device.
Your list is saved on for web access. RSS Feeds - View your list from anywhere with automatic rss feeds of your items. Sync Between Computers - Sync your reading list with any number of computers, work or home. After reading, bookmark pages on your preferred bookmarking service. Click to Save Mode - Quickly batch a reading list just by clicking on interesting links. Here is a demo video for Read It Later which can help you to understand it better.
