The SEF Test plugin allows you to turn on and off SEF from the URL for your own session, without changing the Global Configuration options. It's a very simple tool for testing SEF out on a production site with Global SEF disabled, and fetching non-SEF URLs on a SEF-enabled site. A must when building Joomla! sites.

Joomla! can be configured to use SSL. But this does not mean that all your secure pages are actually kept secure. This plugin forces what is actually required: HTTPS or HTTP.
Simple but effective: If you are running a demo-site, this plugin is able to show a little notice on all your pages - both frontend as backend.
Development sites are sometimes hosted on publicly available sites, while access is still unwanted. This plugin allows for HTTP authentication based on Joomla! users.
