Popular Firefox Extensions Reviewed - Final Thoughts
(Page 4 of 4 )
Yes, that's right; you've just arrived to the end of this article. I'm sure that you've found it educational and informative. Surely, as you've already realized, there are literally thousands of Firefox extensions, so picking the most popular ones and reviewing them isn't an easy task; on the top of that, it is highly subjective.
Therefore, the extensions that I have chosen to review independently are just my personal picks for my personal needs. Each one of us has different needs and we do ourselves a favor if we are using extensions that we really need. Believe me, a friend of mine runs almost fifty Firefox extensions out of which he barely uses five, at most. That's not the point of extensions.
It makes sense to try out various extensions, even hundreds of them, but if you have found the ones that you like, you should keep those and get rid of the rest. Unnecessary extensions can cause memory leaks and even affect the overall security of Firefox. Keep in mind, a bad code or a defective user script can also spark lots of error messages, incorrect page renderings, and ultimately lots of headaches.
In closing, I'd like to suggest checking out the following article: Web Browser-based Feed Aggregators. On the third page of that article you can read about two RSS extensions for Firefox. I don't know if you are satisfied or not with the standard way of feed aggregation and managing that Firefox does, but you may be interested. That's all.
Feel free to experiment and try other out other extensions.
