    Guys, Hi! :)

    There is a Firefox Addon that does the following:

    In Google result pages, there is a new icon in front of every result. When you hover the mouse over it, it opens the linked webpage in a popup window after a set amount of seconds. I had it before, but after I reinstalled everything on my new HDD, I am unable to recall the name of the Addon. It was quite helpful then, and I need it now very very urgently... :(

    Please help this old man earn some peace by helping me on this.

    Thanks!

    There are tons of these. Search for "website preview addons for Firefox", and you will find them.

    If you are doing some research and when you're trying to find some points (not read the whole webpage) that are more important, then the addon is more helpful. It opens up the webpage immediately in a popup, and you can just glance through it, and then go to the next result that you feel is important. If I feel the page is important then I open it in another tab else I move on to next result. It saves time in opening the site in another tab, reading it, closing it, coming back to the results page, and doing the process all over again.

    I guess it's a personal preference, and that addon was a good help -- it was saving me lot of time. I like to read on many topics, but I hate to read the entire webpages... I do fast reading and taking points, so the site opened in a popup suits me more than opening it in a tab, etc.

    And you can try it on BHW links also. You can preview the page# link also. I am a little more lazier than most so this addon helps me a lot. :D

    Some of the most important for me are:
    Firebug (useful for our web development business)
    Dcurrency (I need it all the time to see various rates such as USD, GBP, and ZAR)
    Avast Online Security
    GMail Manager NG (got to check about 10 gmail accounts all the time :))
    Speeddial
    IDM
    QR Code Image Generator (a life saver... I need to bring the site up on my android mobile from PC as fast as I can sometimes. This is very useful for that.)
    QuickJava
    Tab Mix Plus
    FEBE
    Cool Previews,
    and some others for everything else.
