    Good list. I’d like to add a couple I found extremely helpful:

    Linkification. Converts text links to working links that can be clicked on.

    IE Tab. This embeds IE into Firefox tabs, which allow you to view a page in IE within the Firefox browser.

    Hi Carol.
    Thanks for mentioning Hyperwords™!

    A quick update:

    We just released version 1.5 which adds a powerful Toolbar function.

    This new version also addresses the issue of the menu popping up to frequently (which could make it a little annoying) by adding new Preferences so you can specify exactly how it should work.

    In a month’s time version 2.0 will be launched, featuring full user customizability, as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer support.

    Get this new version as well as more information at http://www.hyperwords.net

    1.5 is borne out of user feedback and we’d be very grateful for any further thoughts and perspectives or questions. Please contact me via email ‘frode ‘at’ hyperwords.net’.
