    Just found this great firefox plugin...
    Not sure how many of you already have this plugin installed, or how popular it is, but I found it very useful. It has seo research related tools all in one location, which will save you a good amount of time (at least it does for me).

    Anyway, if you don't have it, check it out at:

    Very interesting.

    The only complaint I have so far is that it slows my browser load time down noticeably unless I disable the Alexa feature. Then the pages load right up.

    Other than that I like it!

    Thanks for sharing your find.

    I don't see a slowdown with the Alexa option on. Hopefully this is a better solution than the full Alexa toolbar It sits in the status bar next to my SiteAdvisor button

    Hadn't seen this before... thanks for posting!

    I do hate Alexa though... one day we'll have a better tool to use, but I can only hope that day will come sooner than later!

    For what it is worth the regular Alexa toolbar slows my browser's down too.

    Must just be combo of my machine & Alexa or something.

    I have been using this for quite some time but with both PR and Alexa off. Darn I thought everyone new about it or I would have posted it.

    If you have pr and alexa off what's the point? Checking backlinks and related links?

    Mostly a quick link to Indexed Pages and sometimes Whois and DNSstuff.com. I have PR covered in the G toolbar and don't care about Alexa.

    I am pretty sure it's the Alexa engine itself. Alexa is very, very slow! Even when you're searching thru their site directly.

    I have been researching this issue on many boards and it would seen the general consensus is that the Alexa tool bar significantly increase page download time. Furthermore when I first installed the tool Firefox stopped working completely, this appears to be a compatibility issue with other add-ons I have installed, but so far I have not pin pointed which one.

    It should be on the bottom of your browser. Right click on the little q looking thing for more options.
