    Levi's suggestion... What addons do you have for your browsers :D Reasons etc. would be appreciated, for other people to peruse (great word) :D

    Chrome - 3.0.1 - No addons - Do however use tabslock, which binds chrome to my caps locks button.... very simple as I never use the button it means I can open the browser whenever...

    IE7 - No addons - only used for compatibility

    Safari 4 - same as above

    Opera 10 - Same as above

    Firefox 3.5.2 -

    *colorzilla - used to select a colour on your screen and return the values for it (Though have color cop, a freeware desktop version of the same type of thing)

    *Firebug - developers tool - if you code - get this!

    *MeasureIt - for measuring sections of site

    *Skype extension (Didnt know I had this but yeh) - dont know

    *Web Developer - another developers tool - if you code - get this!

    *yslow - firebug addon that tells you why your page is slow - very useful indeed. -

    *Recently got some SEO addons, but not tested them yet :D - -

    And you guys??

    For Firefox 3.5 I have installed:
    Firebug, Web Developer, GooglePreview, Greasemonkey, FFChrome and Fission.

    FFChrome is to reduce the amount of options when right-clicking and adding a "More options" sub menu instead. Unfortunately I'm still waiting for 3.5 compatible version :(

    Fission is just a little extra that gives you the Safari style loading progress in the URL bar.
