For several years now, I have been using Firefox. It is, in my opinion, the best browser available – far superior to IE or Google Chrome. This can be disputed, and often has, and I will be looking into all of these distinctions in my upcoming series of articles on the subject of browsers. One of the most impressive thing about Firefox is the wide range of addons available that allow it to do just about everything.
I’ve often seen collections of ‘Top 10 Firefox Addons’, and so on, and I always think that they have left out the best addons. So here is my interpretation of the whole genre. I will be doing several collections of these addons, and my first one will be a collection of all the addons that I am running on my computer.

I am also running the apps, previously mentioned, that make Firefox look like Firefox 4.0.
I’m sure a lot of you have seen the new mockups for Firefox 4.0, and I’m sure you agree with me when I say that it looks wonderful. Well, would you like to see how to get all of those cool new features now? Well, with this collection of addons, you can get all of those cool new features and the brand new look.

So, what can you expect from this revolutionary new software suite, planned to be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft’s Web-Apps?
Now web-apps have only been released to a select few, randomly chosen, to have their skydrive upgraded to include web-apps. I was not a member of the lucky few, so I won’t be posting screenshots off of the internet on here. If you want these, or you want to read a review of them, you can Google the subject.
