    Reporters who cover technology joke that the easiest way to provoke reader reaction is to describe Macs as underpowered and overpriced, or virus writers as hackers. Do either and your inbox is guaranteed to get flooded with e-mail.

    We can now add another response-rouser to that list: Write a story about Mozilla and Firefox extensions and fail to mention a few of the add-ons that people evidently find essential to their life and pursuit of happiness on the Web.

    I had the very same thought when I looked at the original article, they recommended solid choices, but still missed the most popular ones.

    This article does appear to cover the basics

    Adblock, tab browsing and mouse gestures ( I prefer all-in-one myself http://perso.wanadoo.fr/marc.boullet/ext/extensions-en.html) , image zoom.

    Super drag and drop is a interesting choice since it's much newer than the others.

    I think other choices are marginal, prefbar is Mozilla only not firefox.
    Firefox users should go for either prefbuttons and/or Toolbar enhancements
    http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/clav/#prefbuttons ,http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/clav/#tbx, neither allows user agent switching ,so you need user agent switcher http://www.chrispederick.com/work/firefox/useragentswitcher/

    Others I like

    Context search http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=75294 - Highlight text right click and choose which search engine to use to search.

    IEview - http://ieview.mozdev.org/ - Simple extension that adds a option to open links or pages with IE (or anyother browser), handy for visiting one or two IE only sites.


    There are others, my stable profile uses 30 extensions!!
