Firefox is rapidly becoming the most popular web browser, and one of the main reasons for its success is its wide variety of useful addons. Here’s a list of the top 5 Firefox extensions, which you ought to add to your Firefox experience — if you haven’t already!
5. Download Statusbar
Download Statusbar gives you a simple, quickly customizable bar at the bottom of your window to keep track of your files. It’s a great improvement over the default Firefox download manager, and gets rid of that annoying popup window.
4. InstantFox Quick Search
This addon earns a spot as one of the top 5 Firefox extensions by making the address bar double as a search bar for sites ranging from Amazon to Wikipedia, as well as improved autocomplete terms. You can also customize your own search shortcuts.
2. Video DownloadHelper
We’ve all wanted to revisit or have a friend watch a video we came across on the web, only to find it’s been taken down or moved. Who knows if you’ll be able to find it again? Nearly the most popular of the top 5 Firefox extensions, Video DownloadHelper lets you save that video to your hard drive with one click. It even supports several different video formats.
1. Adblock Plus
Easily the most popular, it’s hard to understand why Firefox doesn’t come with this, the best of the top 5 Firefox extensions, already installed. It runs unobtrusively in the background, kills popups, stops those irritating video ads, and prevents you from having to see many more.
Hopefully this list of top 5 Firefox extensions will make your browsing easier, and just possibly, more fun. There are many, many others serving almost any function you can imagine, but these deserve to be installed first thing!
