Free Webtools: Two cool Mozilla firefox add-ons

One of the reasons, although their are plenty, for Mozilla firefox spreading fast is its being open-source, i.e. it allows you to download hundreds of extensions to strengthen your browsing power. Two such extensions are mentioned below.

1.Cooliris Previews

Many times, before clicking a link, you wanna know, what will be found ahead. Install Cooliris and after that if you hover your mouse over a link a small blue icon appears. Clicking on the icon opens a new window which shows a preview of the page and you can decide whether you want to go there or not. Just like snapup. There are several options available in the pop-up window.

2. Firefox Showcase

It overcomes the Firefox's shortcoming of thumbnail views in case of .tabbed browsing. Once you install the extension, you get various options for displaying tabs in thumbnails.c
