"Top FIVE" Google Based FireFox Extensions

There are multiple Top 10, Top 20, Top ‘so many’ lists of add-ons for our friendly giant browser Firefox. We decided to do what many of these add-ons itself do as a sole function: sort and filter information. Thus this is a list of 5 extensions for Firefox, released over the past months, but strictly only for Google and Gmail. Next we will do another subsection of FireFox add-ons, possibly Download enhancing ones; but for now check these basic bread and butter Google/Gmail enhancers.

Google Indic Transliteration 1.0.5
Probably the most important add-on for us Indian users, this little gem allows us to type in Indian scripts, much more easily then actually installing separate language packs. Thus we have access to languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam etc. It works in Text Boxes and Gmail, Zoho Mail etc.
