Browser add-ons can help personalize the way you use the internet. They also give you additional features and can help you make the most of your time online.

As Firefox literally has thousands of add-ons or as they call it, "extensions", below is a list of the best and most useful "extensions" available. There's also an essential list of plug-ins that 95% of users need to use the features of the websites they visit on a daily basis. Plug-ins help your browser perform specific functions like viewing special graphic formats or playing multimedia files.

Everything available on this page has been tested and come from the Firefox website as well as major software development companies, such as Adobe and Sun Microsystems. They can be easily installed, uninstalled and reinstalled and will be available from this page whenever you need it.

The add-ons list has been separated in 3 sections, Essentials, TopMarks, and Personal.

- The Essentials list consists of "must have" plug-ins that all browsers need to surf certain websites like eBay, YouTube, BBC, as well as most game, video, music sites
- TopMarks is a list of add-ons that InternetExplorer-Firefox.com recommends as they provide additional functionalities which can save you a massive amount of time as well as keep you safer online
