There’s some pretty suave Firefox plugins out there that come in really useful for playing around with and exploring sites. Each one has it’s own merit. If there’s anything you use that’s awesome, share it in the comments pls k thx bai.
Flagfox – Puts a tiny flag in the browser address bar to show which country the site is hosted in.
Live HTTP Headers – Runs through the headers that are sent to your browser.
Firebug – I love Firebug so very much. Once it’s installed, hit F12 and it’ll bring up the Firebug menu. Then you can hit “inspect”, select any element on the page and adjust it. I think it’s mostly useful for coding, but it’s got loads of uses.
SEO For Firefox – Comes with loads of awesome features like adjusting the search results to show more information about sites that are ranked, but I use it mainly because it highlights NoFollows.
User Agent Switcher – Lets you see pages as if Googlebot was your user agent, as well as loads of other user agents. If you want to add Googlebot as a possible user agent, open up the User Agent Switcher options menu, go to User Agents and select “Add”. Put the title as Googlebot, and then put the user agent as: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html).
SEO Quake – Shows Page Rank toolbar data, instant access to Yahoo linkdomain data and Google site: command data. If you’re going to use this in an office full of SEOs, all of them using SEO Quake, try not to have it auto-load data whenever you query Google, it tends to get your office IP captcha’d for a few days. I speak from experience.
SEOMoz Toolbar – Display Moz Rank & Moz Trust from their Linkscape tool, as well as Page Rank. You need to be an SEOMoz member and you need to be logged in to use it.
