Top 40 Firefox plugins, extensions and add-ons

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox is a very useful and feature-rich browser, we all know that. But
| aside from being a robust Web browser, Firefox is appealing to more
| sophisticated users because of the support that it gets from third-party
| application developers.
| These developers continuously enrich Firefox’s functionality through plugins,
| extensions and add-ons. Here are 40 interesting and useful Firefox tools to
| give you a pleasant and fruitful browsing experience.


Why is Firefox so popular?

,----[ Quote ]
| The only field where Firefox beats all competitors is when it comes to
| extensions. Though there an amazing amount of well-designed and useful
| extensions (or widgets) for Opera, and a few extensions for Internet
| Explorer, the real master of extensions is Firefox. Its open source code
| combined with a decent market share apparently is a very attractive
| combination to developers and resulted in more than 5000 Firefox extensions
| in just a few years (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/customize/), and
| the number of extensions is growing rapidly.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
