200 words / 1 min. Five great, although lesser-known, WordPress plugins: Login LockDown, SexyBookmarks, wp-Typography, WP Greet Box, and WP Minify.
Note: this post is from 2009. Evaluate with care and in light of later events.
Login LockDown — adds extra security to WordPress by restricting the number of failed login attempts.
SexyBookmarks — sure, there are many ways to add lists of sharing icons and links to your posts — but this one is pretty.
wp-Typography — easily improve the typography on your site, em and en dashes, hyphenation, and much more.
WP Greet Box — give a simple little welcome message to visitors coming via various referrers, like Stumbleupon or Digg.
