I've been using Firefox for a long time and can recommend it to anyone who is still using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Besides being more secure, Firefox users have the ability to install extensions, little addons that add to the functionality of the browser. I collected ten nice extensions that are worth a try if you are using Firefox. All work with the latest build 1.5 and versions before, of course.
Lets start with the extensions:
Update: It is interesting to note that only four of the extensions that were available for Firefox 1.5, are no longer available, while the remaining six extensions are still available for the latest versions of the Firefox browser. We have removed the broken extensions from this article as a result of this. You can follow the links to install the other extensions right in the latest version of the Firefox web browser.
