If you use Firefox, then there is a great plugin to help your game out. It’s called FoxGame.
It is 100% Legitimate (meaning it has been OK’ed by the OGame Staff).
You need Firefox for this to work. You can download Firefox from the following link. UPDATE: Firefox 18.104.22.168 was just released a short time ago. It contains several security updates. If you haven’t switched from Internet Explorer to Firefox, NOW IS THE TIME!
Here are some of the features it adds:
- Reduced galaxy view: Planet column is not rendered and its functinality is moved to Name col., debris header reduced also.
- Automatic universe selector in login page.
- Extra delete options and spy report options: You can control messages from the top or the bottom.
- Fleet arrival and return time: In fleet destiny selection page you will see the time when you fleet will arrive and come back to your planet.
- Fleet retreat time: In fleet page you will see the time when your fleet will arrive if you order to come back.
- Almost all finishing hours: Research and buildings finishing hours, hangar’s qeue finishing time, you can see date/time in overview if you wish and even in phalanx.
- Autochoose mision type: You can define mission priorities so FoxGame will select the mission according to that.
- In mines and power plants info screens (the ones you see when you click in the name) you will see the diferences between your actual level and the rest.
- Autoselect fleet destination: Select coord text anywhere go to fleet send screen and Voila! the destination is already selected. There is no need to take down numbers anymore.

As a side-note… Firefox 2.0 has some great speed improvements for loading websites (not just OGame). It is definitely worth downloading even if you decide not to use FoxGame.
