When setting up Redmine as a project management system you might run into an issue after configuring the SVN repository for a project.

I’ve been using Firefox add-ons for years now and now dwindled down to the ones I used most often:

  • ColorZilla (grab color from any web site)
  • Ctrl-Tab (thumbnails of all open tabs – kinda slow when you have a bunch of tabs open)
  • Drag & (very convenient file sharing)
  • Firebug (makes CSS infinitely easier to work with)
  • GMail Manager (quickly switch between Gmail accounts without authenticating every time)
  • HTTPFox (makes debugging HTTP request/response cycles easy)
  • GooglePreview (thumbnail previews of Google results)
  • Screen grab! (can grab entire web page, visible area, or just a portion)
  • StumbleUpon (tons of interesting sites based on your interests, a nice break from work when i need a few minutes)
  • Web Developer (complements Firebug very well – though not using it much for anything at the moment)
