Best Security & Privacy Add-ons for Firefox

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?

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.
