Back in 2010 I published a list of WordPress plugins that were installed here on the site.
You can see the original WordPress plugin listing with a click on the link but it may not be necessary anymore as this article offers a revised and updated list of plugins run on this site.
This article looks at the WordPress plugins that are installed today here on Ghacks. If you compare this listing with the one from 2010, you will notice that some plugins had to go, and that a lot have been added to the site.
WordPress plugins extend the blog in a similar fashion that Firefox add-ons or Google Chrome extension the browser.
They most of the time add functionality that the default WordPress installation is not offering, and sometimes modify or remove existing features or options.

As you can see, I have installed many new plugins in the past two years. Let me know if you have questions about a particular plugin, or if you'd like to recommend another plugin.
Update: I have switched to the premium version of Yoast's SEO plugin recently. Since it integrates several other plugins, such as Yoast Breadcrumbs or a sitemap functionality, it allowed me to remove some of the previously used plugins.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
