Originally posted by ror it disgusts me to think gmail requires a plugin to be used in browsers, I don't think about it and wouldn't touch g-mail with an internet-long barge pole.
I am assuming you are talking about the gmail notifier, which is an optional plug in to see if you have email or not without being loggin to into the account. You do not need the plug in to check your gmail account. I have been using gmail for about a month now, and I think it is the best email account I have ever had ( my opinion of course ).
Anyways, I have been using firefox ( phoenix and firebird ), since version 0.1, Yes, version point one, and it has been my preferred browser since it came out.
Actually Gmail cant be viewed by some browsers...some versions of IE I think. (I'm not sure which..but I cant open it at my school)
But its still in its BETA stage and I'm sure they'll solve that problem too. I consider to be the best email account I've had too.
first of all gmail does support safari. I have tried it. Also i think an extension that should not be forgotten is Gcache. When you come upon a web page that is temporarily down you can look at the cached page from google by right clicking the link and selecting Gcache this page. Can be very useful.
set of Extensions i am using ...
- All in one MOUSE gestures
- SwitchProxy Tool
- Paste and Go
- Tabbrowser Preferences
- FlashGot ... integrates with most downloaders ( only windows downloaders )
- FoxyTunes ... integrates with most media players ... ( linux included )
- Fireftp ( gives u a cuteftp or gFTP like interface )
- Wizz RSS news reader
- Download Statusbar
- Dictionary Search
- BBCode ( now added )
well it was worthwhile to wait before loads and loads of extensions came up !!!
Tho i must say i really like Tabbrowser Extensions which was better than tabbrowser preferences and it had session management too
now does neone know how to getrid of close buttion in the tabbar ???
One extension that I find constantly missing from reviews adn is an extension that I personally cannot live without, well I could, but wouldn´t have as much fun is Session Saver http://www.pikey.me.uk/mozilla/
