Popular Firefox Extensions Reviewed
(Page 1 of 4 )
Mozilla Firefox is the world’s second-most popular web browser right after Microsoft Internet Explorer. One of the main reasons it has gained such a quick and steady rise in popularity is because it’s very secure, fast, and fully customizable. At the moment there are more than 2,000 extensions that can be used as add-ons. In this article we’re going to review the most popular ones that improve the way we surf the Web.
The purpose of this article is to open up a world of possibilities and expand your horizons, if by any chance you aren't familiar with some of these extensions. Firefox is an amazingly fast, secure, and neat browser, but right out of the box it might look quite plain and simple. That's the beauty of it. However, it has an amazing community that develops thousands of free add-ons as extensions.
Before we begin, I'd like to make one thing clear: as explained previously, there are hundreds of extensions so please understand that I'll do my best to pick extensions from different categories, the ones that I personally like and have found quite effective. You shouldn't limit yourself, however, because there are lots of others that are more obscure, perhaps undeservedly so.
Therefore, extensions from the following categories are going to be reviewed in this article: web development, download management, bookmarks, social & communication, themes & appearance, feeds, news, blogging, photos, music, videos, privacy, security, search tools, language support, and much more.
We're going to rate extensions considering their features, usability, effectiveness, and user interface. Our target is to find the "must-have," most popular extensions without which we shouldn't use our Firefox, because they can improve our overall productivity and help us gain peace of mind throughout our web surfing endeavors.
Now that you know what to expect from this article, we should begin. Read on.
