Firefox Add-ons that Add to the Performance

Over the few months, Firefox has seen a fall in its number of users largely due to Google’s creation of the Chrome Webstore which has a whole database of extensions and applications. This has attracted a lot of new Chrome users. However, one should not overlook the fact that Firefox still holds about 30% of the web-browsing market and it features in the top 3 browsers being used by most internet surfers. Moreover, Firefox has some great add-ons which really deserve applause. Here is a list of some free and very useful extensions which add value to your Firefox and improve your browsing experience.

Who does not shop online these days? Almost all of us are used to buying stuffs from Amazon.

Auto Pager

How often have you been reading an interesting article on a website and the articles are spread over several pages? Each time you click on “Next Page” to move to the next part, the webpage reloads. This trouble of reloading every time can be avoided with this extension. It automatically merges all the different pages on the website into one single page which can be scrolled endlessly. So, no need to bother yourself with multi-page articles anymore, you can view the entire article in a single page only.

This is a helpful tool for students who are doing research work on the web. It enables you to copy large amount of text and data, then paste them anywhere (word document, twitter…) as unformatted text. Then, you can edit the data as per your requirements.

Internet Explorer Tab

If you surf a lot on the internet, you might have noticed there are certain websites (especially Microsoft websites) which frequently are not available on Firefox or Google Chrome. These WebPages have been actually encoded as per the specificities of Internet Explorer. This add-on pops up a tab which is a simulator of the Internet Explorer browser. This will allow you to surf the web without any limitation and thus, there isn’t any need to install both the browsers.
