    Hi Babanature,

    Yes indeed, there are SO many extensions that one can literally go crazy seeing them as you want to have most of them, but as you mentioned, if you go in for too many, there are more chances of your browser crashing.

    I am more of a Chrome person, though I do toggle between Firefox and Chrome if need be. I hadn’t heard of Firebug from your list, so would surely be checking that one out, as you know how far I run off from codes!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful list with us. Have a nice weekend :)

    Hey mate,

    Great post. For me, Buffer and HootSuite are important. I quit using SEOquake because it was lagging my Firefox badly. But if my lappy isn’t old, I would be using it.

    Oh yes, I replaced it with Moz bar!

    Hey Babanature,

    I had a good time reading your article, actually it was the first time i was reading your article. I heard a lot about you and your blog and finally i decided to stop by your blog. You’ve mentioned some outstanding extensions. My favorite extensions among all of them are SEOQuake and Buffer. I’d try others too if it will not affect my browser speed.

    Though I hardly use any other browser apart from Chrome, but since the recent latest upgrade of Firefox, everything about Firefox improved, and I now sometimes toggle Chrome and Firefox again. I agree with you that those Firefox extensions are wonderful and in fact they work magic to your browser because I have used some in the past and can really attest to that. Babanature you want to make me now to be visiting my Firefox again on more frequent note. Thank you for the share
