Passive Information Gathering Tools for Firefox

There are all kinds of great tools popping up these days to help the security professional with their job. Here are a couple of the ones that I've found useful:

PassiveRecon in particular automates, to some degree, the mining of social and public information which is available about a target without actually connecting in any way to the host or web service.

AdvancedDork provides an easy way to use the advanced Google options (googledorking) to find additional or more refined public information regarding what's highlighted.

Anytime a utility can help cut down on the amount of time it takes to collect information, and allows more time to be spent on analyzing what's found it gets put into the toolbox.
