The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

My last several sites have relied upon Xmap to get Google indexing working quickly & properly. it does the right thing immediately after installing & publishing, with no maintenance required. In my experience, formatting the site map list is abundantly possible if you know how to use CSS. That's what I need more of in Joomla: simple & robust tools like this.
Akeeba Backup
This is the first time I've felt compelled to submit a review for a Joomla extension, realising that Akeeba Backup has become part of my professional workflow for developing & deploying commercial sites. The free version has been completely dependable across a wide variety of environments, allowing me to develop a site on any server & then move it into its final location when done. Always a quick & flawless migration every time. Also I use it every day to back up multiple sites. At this point, I would never set up Joomla without it.
