This plugin is for finding out how the server you are on is performing, it does a great job of performing some quick tests to see if you are on a quality server or not.

After install it monitors your website and you can let it run for a few days to see how your site is performing, you can also review the system info to find out what level of programs your server is running.

This plugin allows to have GeoIp detection on your site that you can then integrate into a plugin or theme to track visitors to your website. Currently I have used it in conjunction with the wp Hosting performance check plugin which countries visitors are coming from to help detect slow areas.
Have you ever needed to show some realtime server and execution environment information? Host Info will provide you more information on the webserver that´s hosting your WordPress site. I found this to be somewhat handy, though it didn't give me all of the stats that I might have wanted.
An Interactive Floating Cart for WooCommerce that slides in when the user decides to buy an item. Products, quantities and prices are updated instantly via Ajax. This is a lot like many of the professional carts you have seen at the big retail stores. It's a nice way to keep the cart in view at all times.
This plugin allows you to import events from facebook.com into The Events Calendar and Events Manager. If you are like me and use The Events Manager as your events plugin of choice, this plugin is a no-brainer as an extra add-on. As an add-on plugin this plugin needs The Events Calendar or Events Manager Installed and activated.
Marcus’ Plugins: Host Info – 3, Woo Floating Cart Lite – 4, Import Facebook Events – 5
