Admin Bar Unlocker
I'm sure Joomla has a good reason for locking the admin bar, but I certainly don't know what that is.

This extension saves me so much time and headaches. It allows me to open another tab in FF for say, the article or section manager, without having to leave what I'm editing. Great when I need to clean the cache, too. Such a great extension!

Cache Cleaner
I have a nervous cache-clearing habit, and this awesome extension makes clearing the site cache so much easier and quicker. You absolutely need to install this on your site.

Getting SEF URLs to work without error can be very difficult, and with every site I do, I always run into some problem. SH404SEF is absolutely the way to go when it comes to setting up SEF URLs on your site.

SH404SEF has great support at it's back, and I've never had a problem that wasn't answered by their forum moderators. That's a huge relief knowing you have someone at your back, especially when you pay for an extension.

The only thing preventing me from giving them a 5th star is that I think their documentation could be a little more thorough, and a little more descriptive towards newbies. But since the forum is so active, you'll still find the answer sooner or later.

They've recently updated the UI and added Google Anayltics which I find totally awesome. I love the new updates.

Main Menu Images
Easy menu. Glad there is hover support, although I found the Java Script very slow to load the hover. It's the only menu for Joomla that I've found with hover support, though, so it's worth it.

Art Sexy Lightbox
I don't normally like to pay for extensions, but will happily do so when it means they work easily.

I had some trouble getting this set-up initially, but once I figured things out, and got some help from the developer on the forums (who replied in like 2 hours!) I was set to go. So easy to use, looks clean and professional, and I feel confident that if I have any future troubles they'll be take care of quickly. Thanks!

This is a great component that saved me so much time! From install to submission to the search engines it took 5 minutes. I'm so glad I found this component before I created my own site map by hand. Thank you!!!
