Best Firefox extensions

"It's been nearly a year since the last major release of Firefox -- version 3.6 -- and development of the Firefox 4 seems to have slowed down a bit, with the planned release of late 2010 getting set back to February 2011.

"Much of this development has been wrapped up in adding HTML 5 features to the open source browser, so the delay, while not greeted with much enthusiasm amongst Firefox users, hasn't created a lot of fussing, either.

"Nor has it slowed down the development of the vast array of extensions available for Firefox, as developers find new and creative ways to view and interact with the web every day. Extensions are one of Firefox's most powerful feature sets, since their ease-of-use and extensibility enables users to build exactly the kind of browser they need. With more than 5,000 add-ons available, there's a lot of customization options to chose from, and some of them have to be better than others.

"So, which ones do you simply need to have? That will be the focus of this series, which will review the best Firefox extensions in several categories, then round up the most popular Firefox extensions of all as of the end of 2010. The categories are built around Mozilla's own classifications, but grouped together in ways we think makes more sense."
