I don't know if anyone has done this yet, but I'm curious to know which add-ons you guys use/find useful. I haven't found everything I'm looking for yet... but here are mine -

IE Tab
Tab Mix Plus
Image Zoom
Resizeable text area
TinyURL Creator
Dictionary Tooltip
Customise Google

Anyone have anything interesting?

Cool. When I get home I'll definitely be checking some of those out...

I used to use AdBlock Plus, but it seemed to slow everything down terribly. Of course that was at work - where everything runs like crap anyway. I'll try it again at home.

What about themes? Greasemonkey scripts? Anything else interesting?

That was the plan anyway - to look them up that is. Once I have the name it gives me something to screw around with by looking them up, that way I may run into other useful add-ons.

I have used several in the past, but I kind of drifted away from most of them. I'll have to take a look at some of these and see if I'm missing something important. ;)
