jQuery Ajax and Passing Data

I was having an issue the other day with passing an ampersand into a script via jQuery Ajax. 

I was doing this: data:"category="+category+"&groupname="+groupname, If the groupname had an ampersand in it the variable was getting cut off. After do some research on the issue I found a better way to pass in data. This improved way of passing in the data automatically url encodes the data to be passed in properly.

Chrome extensions I use on a regular basis

Google Chrome Sync feature makes it easy for me to remember what extensions I use because if I reinstall and  re-enter my account credentials it will reinstall the extensions for me.  It is a pretty cool feature.

Here are the chrome extensions I use on a regular basis.  I have a few more installed that I have tried, but these are the extensions I use on a regular basis.

Screen Capture (By Google)

Auto Refresh Plus

Last Pass

Mail Checker Plus for Google Mail

Which extensions can you not live without?
