Browser Add-Ons

Add-ons, or extensions or plug-ins (they’re more or less the same thing), let you make your browsing more productive.

Add-ons may

  • let you add or organise content more easily
  • enhance security
  • access content from web-pages more easily
  • change the appearance of your browser

Some add-ons come pre-installed with the browser.

You can find a list of add-ons for Firefox here.
