Add-ons are one of the biggest advantages of Firefox over the competition and Mozilla has grown a healthy ecosystem of developers centered on its popular open source browser over the years. But while longtime Firefox users probably have the browsers packed with their favorite extensions already, the lineup can be overwhelming to newcomers.
To simplify things, the company has just launched Fashion Your Firefox, a version of the add-on library that is edited and maintained by Mozilla staffers, based on the extension's popularity, functionality and ease of use. The site is divided up into categories, which include social networking sites, music, data, shopping, news and searching, each with just a handful of add-ons.
There are many other great extensions not found in the categories currently listed at the site, but this is nonetheless a simple way for those unfamiliar with extensions to get started with some good ones.
