Via WisBlawg.com, in a post titled Firefox Add-ons for Research, Communication, Current Awareness, Privacy & More, Bonnie Shucha compiled a nice table featuring some useful Firefox Add-ons. Add-ons are extensions that add new functionality or complete change appearance of a browser. Firefox is well known for releasing add-ons.
A browser extension is a computer program that extends the functionality of a web browser in some way. Depending on the browser, the term may be distinct from similar terms such as plug-in or add-on. Mozilla Firefox was designed with the idea of being a small and simple web browser, delegating more advanced functions to Mozilla extensions.
Click here to view the full table featuring 59 Firefox add-ons, including Zotero, Jureeka!, Book Bruno, Fire FTP, Picnic, Delicious Bookmark, TinyURLCreator, ColorZilla, Meebo, Westlaw Citation Search, LexisNexis Citation Search, Wolfram Alpha, PrintPDF, and many others.
Feel free to share your comments and experiences with any of these add-ons, and please feel free to suggest additional ones.
