If you are a blogger, niche, or Atticus Blog affiliate marketer, the Firefox browser can save you time and make you money. There are free extensions available that you can quickly install to help you do all kinds of things that you usually need custom software for. First – if you blog or own a website, you should already use the Firefox web browser. If you aren’t, download and install it now and make it your default browser.
It’s free, open-source, and the same extensions are available for everyone regardless of whether you’re on Windows, a Mac, or Linux. Next, download and install this list of free Firefox extensions – and then follow along below with my descriptions of how to use them. I’ll give you two lists of extensions, one “must-have” and the second is “optional” depending on your needs and the type of web work you do. Please note, “your mileage may vary,” and the more extensions you install, the more memory Firefox needs to run.
You can install and uninstall any of these add-ons at any time by going to “Tools -> Add-Ons” in your Firefox browser. All of my working PC’s have 1-2GB of RAM; if you have an older system with less memory, you may choose only to run the essential extensions that work best for you. Oh, also, if you work in more than one location or on more than one PC, you may choose to run “Portable Apps” (Google it) on a memory stick thumb drive. These firefox extensions can be found in the repository at firefox.com (just search by name).
