No problem.
Also, I think I may have just found a better add-on than InvisibleHand. It's called PriceBlink. It has a few additional features including being able to check coupon codes. It does compensate for shipping costs. It seems a bit slower than InvisibleHand though (in displaying the final results). It does support Newegg. It also appears to support and check even more sites than InvisibleHand, including other popular sites we OCN-ers buy from such as Superbiiz. However, it supports US markets only; I think InvisibleHand has the advantage of being able to check U.K. and German markets.

EDIT: You can use both addons - the InvisibleHand bar appears below the PriceBlink one. That is what I'm going to do.

I actually used PriceBlink for a couple weeks when I was "maining" Chrome. Then, I tried InvisibleHand again and it seemed to find better prices and it would also display the current page's price unlike the version I had of PriceBlink. Also, when I tried using both the slower loading one would simply overlap the other. If it seems it is possible to use both now, that would definitely be ideal.

InvisibleHand appears below PriceBlink for me, so using both works.

Here's a new one that I think a lot of you will really like:
  • Xpnd.it! short URL expander - displays a tooltip when you hover over a short URL showing site name, info, size, type, detailed analysis, and even a link to report the site as malicious if ever. Supports over 500 short URL services. Works very well on Firefox 4 when addon compatibility forced!

Addon list will now be updated daily or near-daily with new additions; each update will be placed in a new post.

TODAY'S NEW ADDONS:

Functionality tweaks
  • TabGroups Menu - Adds a menu in the menu bar that shows a list of tabs, sorted in tab groups - You can use addon Personal Menu to add this menu to the "firefox button" menu, for easier access. It also adds an arrow next to the Tab Groups toolbar icon for accessing this menu.
  • Viewmarks - Highly recommended - Visual bookmarks organizer. Page with bookmarks, with thumbnail previews, can be opened; bookmarks can be edited, deleted, moved, and even added with this visual organizer. I have set this page to open in a new tab.
Functionality addons
  • Add to Search Bar - Highly recommended - Right click on any search box and add it to the search bar. Now I can use the search bar to search OCN, Newegg, NCIX, and any other site with a search function!
  • Quick Search Bar - Highly recommended - Turns the search bar into a bunch of icons. It seems messy but believe it or not, it's quite useful. Now any search engine you want to use is just one, not two or more, clicks away. Click the icon and it will set the search bar to use that search service. Give some life to the search bar and may even deter you from switching to an omnibar.
  • Define - Highly recommended - Adds a "define ____" option when you right click a word. Clicking it searches the definition of the word in google.
  • Context Search - Highly recommended - Select word, right click, search from context menu. This add-on is probably the best out of all of the addons I've seen that do this; this one is simple and keeps everything in a separate, organized, uncluttered menu, and keeps the overall context menu uncluttered. Works on Firefox 4 after forced compatibility.
UI tweaks
  • Barlesque - Highly recommended - Makes add-on bar (statusbar) smaller by keeping it in a corner instead of stretching the screen width, and also has options to hide it, appearing only via a keyboard shortcut that you set or a small button in the lower right corner.
  • Scrollbar Search Highlighter - Highly recommended - Works with the find bar and "Highlight all" option. Puts markers beside scrollbar to show where all the matches can be found on a page; use scroll bar to get there. Makes the function similar to Google Chrome's find function.
  • Print/Print Preview - adds dropdown menu to the normal "Print" toolbar icon; you can now access print, print preview & page setup. Great addon if you like saving space and having more functions in a single button.
  • Highlight Textboxes Like Google Chrome (Orange) - Does what it says. I think it looks really nice.
  • Tab Counter - Shows a tab counter at the end of the tab bar
For Minimalists
  • MinUI - Highly recommended - Press CTRL and hide your selection of toolbars. I love this, I can use it to hide a lot of things until needed and keep to a very minimalistic UI. NOTE: When hiding the scrollbar, you can't scroll as usual - only if you can click the scroll wheel & move the mouse or use the keyboard.
Shortcuts and For mouseless users
  • Prospector - Speak Words - Fill in the rest of words as you type them into the location bar; uses the most viewed/favourite site. Can make visiting your favourite sites quicker, along with the built-in"keyword" function.
  • Keyboard Shortcut - Can't remember the shortcuts? Press F12 or go to help > keyboard shortcuts - and you will find an OS-specific/version-specific list of keyboard shortcuts conveniently in front of you.
  • Clear Cache - Press F9 or use a toolbar button to instantly clear the cache. Useful for web developers or if you want to clear up some memory.
  • TabFind - Highly recommended - Have a crapload of tabs open? Use Ctrl + Shift + F to find that tab you need! Works similar to the ctrl + f function to find keywords in a webpage.
Site-specific tweaks/shortcuts
  • ShowOnMap - Highly recommended - Select an address and right click: there is a new "Show on Map" button in the menu that when you click, takes you directly to a google maps page centred over this location. Great shortcut.
xd's add-on count: Now 66 and counting

SpykeZ: Ehh, I don't cater to Chrome I'm a loyal Mozilla fanboi if you do so wish to call me. There's not enough extensions on there yet anyway. Perhaps you should do a Chrome extension list.

Not only enough extensions but take a peek at what chrome extensions can access & some other extensions access +more!

Not acceptable!

It's not a writeup, just a list of extensions I found and really like
Remember to keep checking back, the list is constantly being upgraded and my add on collection keeps growing!
And yeah, insecurity/unclearness is one of the reasons I refuse to use Chrome.

A few more new "highly recommended" addons have been added today - including ViewMarks, TabFind, and ContextSearch.

I also plan to add a section with awesome stylish scripts.
