Mozilla Firefox, more commonly just known as Firefox, is a free and open source web browser first launched in 2004 by the Mozilla Corporation.
According to Statcounter.com in October of 2011 25.3% of Internet users worldwide used Firefox as their go-to web browser. Internet Explorer still led the market with 38% and the very new Google Chrome was catching up with a 21.5% market share, but Firefox remains the browser of choice for millions.
As is also the case with Google Chrome, there are a growing number of add ons available for Firefox, many of which can be a real help to those involved in content creation (blogging, articling etc) social media marketing and indeed SEO in general.
Many of these add ons are so useful that they eliminate the need for all kinds of expensive software, are convenient to use as they “live” in your browser and perhaps best of all, especially from a small business’ point of view, they are free to install and free to use.
In this e book we have gathered together information about some of the best and most useful of these add ons. We hope you find it informative and that by installing some of these add ons you find, as we do, that your life becomes just that little bit easier every time you use them!
