Mozilla annouced today that FireFox 3 Download day was a success. A world record was set with 8,002,530 downloads in a 24 hour period.
The much hyped download day was not without its problems as we remember. But the record was set and FireFox 3 is great.
If you do not use FireFox click the button above and download it now. I will admit I was a little late to the FireFox party. Although probably still qualifying as an early adopter I did hesitate switching from IE.
The reason to switch is addons. The FireFox wealth of browser extensions make it the must use browser for Windows.
The following is my everyday list of addons that I run. If I had to pick one and only one it would be Tab Mix Plus. I can not run FireFox without it. Tab Mix Plus gives you total control over your Tab behavior.
Here is my list of the current addons I am running. Info Lister does a great job of listing the extensions and plugins you have installed. As a result it was very easy to produce this list.
- Down Them All
- Info Lister
- Copy Plain Text
- Copy All URLs
- Better Flickr
- Better Google Reader
- Better GMail
- Tab Mix Plus
- Colorful Tabs
- Ad Block Plus
- Nuke Anything Enhanced
- StumbleUpon Toolbar
I love FireFox 3 but unfortunately some of my favorite extensions from the list have not been updated yet. FireFox without the extensions is still a great browser but the addons make it the only one I ever use.
