- BlueOrganiser BlueOrganizer Indigo Edition, released in Feb 2008 features support for hCard, hCal, adr, rel and locality. hReview is not supported yet. The support is implemented via contextual tips and menus, helping the users to lookup maps, movies, restaurants, people's profiles and more.

- Giftag is a social shopping universal wish list and gift registry. An add-on is available that supports hProduct.

Performs W3C-standard XQuery in Firefox. XQuery at its simplest is XPath, but allows more powerful reshaping of XML (cycling through, sorting, joining sources, etc.)--essentially SQL for XML (though also with some scripting power built in as well). XqUSEme uses Firefox's own parsing (and a few tricks) to clean up poorly-formed HTML in addition to XML.
The newest version supports Greasemonkey-like application of XQueries to specific sites, enabling potential sharing and reuse.
See also an example of using XQuery.
XSL Results allows one to apply XSLT stylesheets to a currently loaded webpage (which can be edited) or to a loaded file. Firefox's own parsing (and a few tricks) to clean up poorly-formed HTML in addition to XML.
The newest version supports Greasemonkey-like application of XSLT stylesheets to specific sites, enabling potential sharing and reuse.
