Google Cache Prowling and Useful Firefox Security Plugins

Post Syndicated from David original

I find that I often check Google’s cache of sites that have been taken down, either as part of an incident investigation or to verify that data has been removed. One of the nicer ways to do this is using a tool like Jeffrey To‘s Google Cache Continue script.This joins my toolbox of existing Firefox plugins such as: NoScript – script blocking URLParams – website get/post parameters Firebug – editing of pages, including Javascript variablesFoxyProxy – a Firefox based proxy switcher that works very well with web app testing tools. IETab – to pop an IE tab into a Firefox testing session Leet Key – for Base64, Hex, BIN, and other transforms ShowIP – shows the current site’s actual IP address, as well as enabling a number of other useful host lookup tools. You can find a whole relation mapped list of Firefox plugins in the FireCAT listing – enjoy!
