Fireday

Firefox Logo Firefox extensions are one of the most useful features in Firefox since the introduction of Firefox. Now called add-ons in version 2, there are over a thousand extensions for Firefox alone. Each one is just as useful as the next.

How do you know which extensions to choose to maximize your browsing experience?

Fireday is a series for reviewing Firefox extensions every Friday (Friday + Firefox = Fireday) and selecting the best and worst extensions that are out there so you know which ones to use and which ones need adjusting.

The entire list is below so find the extension that best suits your needs and drop a line to see if there is an extension you want reviewed.
