Best Security & Privacy Add-ons for Firefox
I think I promised this here months ago, but I didn't anticipate the workload of my course, combined with revision for exams, and the actual full length of the article I was writing.

Anyway, if you are interested in what I consider some of the best security & privacy add-ons for Firefox, please read: http://cryptogasm.com/2011/05/best-secur...r-firefox/

Also would appreciate it if people commented on it (preferably on the blog, but here is fine too), shared it around on social networking sites, etc. I want to try and get some more people interested in the blog, and I'm going to try and write articles for it more frequently.

Great list Adrian. I use most of those but a couple of them I've never head of & am about to try out. Want me to submit your article to Slashdot or have you already done so?
Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore he must exist. --Academician Prokhor Zakharov

Done. Now it just needs a little upvoting on the Firehose.

Great, apart from the fact I'm no longer a Cambridge researcher. Haven't been for about 9 months Tongue

...my CV currently states that I work for Royal Holloway, University of London, in an educational outreach program trying to encourage schools to teach elements of Computer Science.

Where did you download my CV from? As far as I'm aware, the only location it is available is my personal website...

Weird. When I click that link, my most recent CV comes up...

Maybe you have an old one in your cache?

I don't know how, I've never looked at your website before yesterday. Very odd.
