Tip of the Week

For most people who do serious work online, Firefox is the browser of choice. It’s quick, more standards-compliant than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, and it offers a huge range of plug-ins to extend its capabilities.

The problem has been, how do you find the best ones to use? Well, now the team at Firefox have announced Firefox Add-On Collections, which allows anyone to put together a list of their favorite plug-ins which can then be installed as a group. Collections are themselves listed by popularity or as “Editor’s picks,” and currently include Social Circuit, a collection of 16 add-ons for social-networking, and Web Developer’s Toolbox with 12 add-ons that aid in building online projects.
