While browsing the internet we come across so many known and unknown threats. One of the most important precautionary measure a user can take is to use common sense. In addition to common sense, there are some tools / procedures one can adopt to be safe online. In one of my previous post i discussed “No Script” plugin for firefox which is a good remedy against click jacking . Today i ll share my views about other important features that firefox provides for our own security. I have been using firefox for about 3 or 4 years and after trying a lot of other browsers i have concluded that its is a very good option to use firefox because of the level of customization it offers making it a safe and powerful tool against online threats. Following are different plugins that must be used with firefox.
- Adblock Plus. Most of the websites show annoying and sometimes unsuitable ads. With this free addon, one can easily block those ads.
- NoScript . One of the most important addon to firefox. I have given a detailed review of this addon in an earlier post about click jacking.
- WOT. Web Of Trust addon is a safe surfing tool for your browser. Traffic-light rating symbols show which websites you can trust when you search, shop and surf on the Web. The beauty of this tool is that it gives information to all links on a webpage so that one can decide which link to open or not.
- Better Privacy. This tool removes non deletable LSOs from famous sites thus allowing you to surf safely online without these sites tracking you.
