Order Total Modules

Order Total modules allow the final total to be manipulated up or down at checkout time. They are visible on the second page of checkout after shipping is selected.

Search engine optimization

There are two URL rewriting contributions, both of them very good (judging from user response): Tim Kroeger's SEFU and Dreamscape's port of Chemo's Ultimate SEO URLs. Read through (or skim through) both support threads to figure out which contribution best meets your needs. There is a post by Tim Kroeger comparing the two.
