"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."
