    SWEET!! I used the first versions of FIRECAT to build up a solid auditing profile seperate from my usual surfing profile. It would be kewl if they used FEBE (Firefox Extension Backup Extension) and CLEO (Compact Library Extension Organizer), to make an installable XPI file with all the extensions. FIND CLEO & FEBE HERE.

    I dunno if that would be redistributable though? Anyone?

    Well its cool to have a package with all these extensions (add ons).
    it actually did make firefox to security platform..

    OSVD search and ffsniff utilities are really interesting..
    a must have for security assessment work..

    Srsly, someone should come up with a FireLEST (Firefox List of Essential Security Tools) a list of extensions and add ons that will make your FF rock solid secure from malicious attacks while surfing the net. Of course all the settings for the extensions and add ons need to be listed along with the FireLEST.

    I could do it if I had some extra time. Heck I barely have time to surf Darknet!!

    FireCAT version 1.2 has 60 extensions. Few of the new one’s are:

    MySQlSidu- The mySQL Client

    OraDB error code look up.

    Gnosis for data mining: (Gnosis is a real time semantic processing for the web. By evaluating the pages you read, Gnosis immediately locates key information such as people, organizations, companies, products and geographies hidden within the text)

    I really like the Gnosis extensions..
