Essential Application Plugins

The nice thing about programs like Firefox and Thunderbird is that you can get a lot of community-created plugins to make the program look and do what you want. The downside of programs like Firefox and Thunderbird, is there is (at least for me) a few plugins that have to be installed before they work well. So to that end, I've started building up a list of essential plugins.

The plugin model isn't perfect, but it far exceeds the alternative which is that your applications all suck (Microsoft, I mean you). Heck, Nagios at the core doesn't do anything at all for you, it's all from plugins and I can't rave enough about how great an application Nagios is.
