Whenever we talk about Popular Web browsers, few names that strike our mind are: Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer. Out of all, I love Firefox and Chrome as their addons are very useful to extend the features and help us do more than browsing. Though, the dilemma is there are thousands of such add-ons and picking the best from the thousands of add-ons is not an easy task.
We have already talked about many such extensions for Firefox in the past, and I’m extending the list by picking some of my favorite one here. Though, before we add more to the list, I highly recommend looking into following Firefox add-ons, which we have covered in the past.
- Firefox Extensions for Power Blogging
- FTP addon for Firefox
So, let’s look at some of my favorite lists and if you have something to add into this, feel free to comment.
