In the interest of sharing a good thing, which are your favorite browser extensions?

On Internet Explorer...

1. FlashGet: Because downloads still need managing after they're done downloading, and because I only think I should have to download videos once, not every time I watch them.

2. Microsoft Update: Windows and Office updating in one interface.

3. The Server 2003 "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration": When enabled, this makes Internet Explorer safe to use. With the exception of downloading files, there is no function that this extension disables that it is safe to allow Internet Explorer to do, well ever, really.
