Speed up Google search in Firefox

You may think Google search is the fastest way to find what you're looking for, and it just might be if you've also added Firefox plug-ins to give it a shot of adrenaline and clear out the clutter.

Insider Secrets: Hack Google with Firefox extensions

Quiz time: What do CustomizeGoogle, GooglePreview, and McAfee SiteAdvisor have in common?

Answer: The ability to improve on Google search in the Firefox browser. For example, does this scenario sound familiar: You accidentally click on a sponsored link and have to return to the main results page to try again?

How about this one: You wasted 10 minutes clicking through search results because you can't remember the link by name, but think you can identify it by sight (so you check them all)? Or worst yet: You stumble on a dangerous link and get bogged down with malware that takes hours or days to fix. Terrible!

Yep, that trio of plug-ins we mentioned helps you avoid the common pitfalls that add up to a lot of wasted time. The best part about the extensions--other than their being free--is that they're compatible with each other, so you won't see any crashes if you choose to install all three. Watch this Insider Secrets video to see how they work.
