I have Firefox 3.03. I tend to go crazy with add-ons, etc. I have both Java No-Script and CS Lite. They have different functions, but is this overkill? Tends to make surfing a bit slower.

I noticed that at the add-on site, almost all the reviews are highly rated. I have never seen a negative one.

I have a lot of things like Fast Dial, which are convenient, but are they safe? I worry about increased exposure from some of my add-ons; will have to go back to the Safe Internet Browsing Forums tutorial; looked at it yesterday.

Which ones do you like, and which ones do you have concerns about? I would like to hear from you all. Thanks.

I use NoScript, AdBlock+, NewsFox, LeetKey and GMail Notifier on my laptop.
On the desktop box I have AdBlock+, User Agent Switcher, and Exploit-Me.
The last one is not for normal users and I don't recommend using it unless
you know what it does, have permission to test the security of a server, or
enjoy the idea of a cell mate named "Big Bubba" making you his wife. :thumbsup:

I always Google an add-on to see what other people have to say. Or in the case
of the NewsFox add-on I just emailed the author(s) with my questions.
