I've been using Firefox for well over a year and about once a month, I wonder out to the Firefox Add -ons page to look at new extensions, plugins, search engines, and themes. The first place I go to is to check out the top ranked downloads. I take a close look at the top 10 to see what interests me. So over the past 10 months I have been removing, updating, and installing new search engines, themes, and extensions. As it is today, I would like to list my top 5 reason that I use Firefox, many of which are do to additional downloads.
1. Tabbed Browsing - Tab Mixer Plus
2. Remembers my Passwords
3. Fast Performance - Google Web Accelerator & Fastfox
4. Email Notification - Gmail Notifier
5. Easy Search Functions - Including IBM developerWorks
Thanks You Firefox. Below is a complete list of my extensions. If you have any that would improve my top 5 reasons for Firefox, please let me know.
