"The choice of Firefox extensions is no longer confined to
stand-alone tools, but now also takes in a number of handy
collections, says Jack Wallen.
'Firefox has added collections to the choice of useful
extensions since the last time I looked at this topic. Collections
bring together related extensions. So here is my latest list of
worthwhile collections and stand-alone tools.
"1. Reference Desk
Reference Desk is good for students or anyone who needs to research
information. It installs DeeperWeb, which navigates through Google
search results using tag-cloud techniques; SimilarWeb for finding
related sites; the Converter unit, time zone and currency
converter; the Merriam-Webster dictionary; the Wired-Marker
highlighter; ScrapBook for saving and organising sites; Reframe It
for connecting and sharing your thoughts online; and Read It Later
for saving sites for browsing another time."
