Add-ons you should know!

1. ProxTube - Watch YouTube videos that are blocked in Germany

If you are living in Germany or Spain, i bet every internet users some time might have faced this problem -
"Unfortunately, this video is not available in Germany because it may contain music for which GEMA has not granted the respective music rights".

I believe it is unfair to block certain videos and i was looking for the right tool to solve this problem. I have tried many proxy websites, but most of  those are irritating and not free. Hidemyass looked useful, but i couldn't use it every-time i needed, and there are so many restrictions if you are not a paid user. So in this blog i am pointing out some of  the useful add-ons, which will make your browsing experience much easier.

ProxTube - Simply awesome! 
Users doesn't need to do anything like copying url and use other proxy websites to view the blocked videos. Simply install this add-on and enjoy the videos which you couldn't view. Supported for Firefox and Chrome users. 
Important - Chrome users:  Google has removed chrome version for its webstore due to the Youtube Terms of Service. So download it directly from the above official website.

And don't forget to support the developer.

If you are looking alternative for ProxTube, then try Stealthy

2. WebMail Notifier - Checks your email accounts and notifies you.
Use this add-on to check your various email accounts. It saves you time and notifies you everytime you receive an email. It supports multiple Gmail accounts as well and works just fine! 
Now you don't need to use Thunderbird or Outlook. Simply install this add-on and get notified about your emails while using browser. 

(For Chrome and Opera, you can use X-notifier)

3. BYTubeD - Bulk YouTube video Downloader,
4. DownThemAll! - The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!

Use BYTubeD to batch the YouTube videos on any webpage and use DownThemAll to download the entire batch ultra-fast. Both works perfectly and is very simple to use. It downloads the whole playlist of YouTube videos or bunch of YouTube videos in any website, and speed is simply cool.

Users can use their favorite download manager to download after batching using BYTubeD. for more info see here ->
