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... http://lifehacker.com/5046035/tabslock-puts-your-browser-one-keystroke-away

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) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/271

*Firebug - developers tool - if you code - get this! https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843

*MeasureIt - for measuring sections of site https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/539

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

*Web Developer - another developers tool - if you code - get this! https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60

*yslow - firebug addon that tells you why your page is slow - very useful indeed. - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5369

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.
