Building a better Mozilla

Wired have a great article on how to get the most out of Firefox or Mozilla; we've written articles like this in-house before. In other news, last week, the group saw a stunning 700,000+ downloads of Firefox; the sharp increase in downloads was attributed to CERN's warning against IE, and ever growing public awareness to Internet Explorer's problems.

"Most people who switch to Mozilla or Mozilla's Firefox browser quickly notice that the browser is pretty bare. It contains exactly what you need to browse the Web -- no less and no more. And while there's a lot to be said for running a lean, clean program, sometimes you long for more features, a little extra functionality.

Enter Extensions, little programs that you can add to Mozilla or Firefox to make the browser do what you want it to do. There are now close to a hundred extensions available for downloading. Most work perfectly; others are a bit buggy.

Below are some of the extensions that have been rated highly by Mozilla users. All the extensions work with both Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox -- an enhanced version of the Mozilla browser -- unless otherwise noted, but most developers are now creating and updating extensions only for Firefox. "
