I love Firefox. I despise IE. I use IE only long enough to ensure that my own webs and my client’s site resolve properly using that browser. Then, lickety-split, I’m back to FireFox where I can browse in tabs, where I can worry less about security issues, where I can customize my browser to serve me the way I work, and where I can be a part of a community of software developers and users that create objects for their peers. It’s a geeky community, but an enjoyable one.
Yeah, I know the new IE 7.0 offers its own "tabbed" browsing, but they are too late to this party, IMHO.
I could wax poetic about Firefox for hours (I’m verbose that way, at times…)
But, rather than doing that, I thought you may be interested in what Firefox add-ons I use and why I love them. That way, if you want to give Firefox a spin, you will know some of the bells and whistles you can add. And, if you already adore Firefox, you can peruse a list of "must have" add-ins that are tried and true (and won’t crash your Internet sessions).
