Top 10 Best Addons For Mozilla Firefox 4

First off all let me tell you a little something about Mozilla Firefox. Keep in mind that it’s a free and open source browser, comes from Mozilla Application Suite, and was created by Mozilla Corporation. Starting March 2011, Firefox managed to occupy the second position ( with 30% usage share ) in the top of worlds most used browsers.

Firefox had the biggest success in Germany and Poland, where is the most used browser, holding 60% and 47% respectively. The interesting part is that Firefox is based on the Gecko layout engine to show pages. Alongside Firefox 4, a new wave of features are available for the users.

The new options and features include tabbed browsing, incremental find, spell checking, live bookmarking, private browsing and much more. Users can also add new plug-ins ( extensions ), which are created by third-party developers.

As you already know by now, Mozilla launched the new and improved Firefox 4 web browser. The great news is that Mozilla has it’s own developer community, and as expected hundreds of add-ons were submitted for approval.
