Flagfox: display server country

Going through some old screenshots of mine, I remembered about a neat little plugin, called Flagfox. It is available for SeaMonkey and of course Firefox. This extension displays the country where the server hosting the webpage currently viewed is located. It does so by placing a cute little flag in the browser’s address bar:

Among the tools provided are site safety checks, whois, translation, similar sites, validation, URL shortening, etc. There is a very good description on the plugin’s webpage, so I will not go into details about working with the plugin. In brief, left clicking the flag pinpoints the server on a map and provides a more detailed information. Right clicking the flag brings a menu with different options. To customise it, options can be added or removed by selecting them from an extensive list, which I am going to leave as an end of this post:
