Coo, look at all those Extensions...

Firefox extensions are very useful indeed - adding lots of extra functions to the browser. They're often small, quick to install, and simple to use. I've got a lot installed, and use FEBE to backup and manage them all. It also produces a formatted list of what you've installed so far.

After I ran today's extension backup, I took the list, tidied it up a little, and stuck it behind a cut tag...

Here's a nice long list of all the Firefox extensions I use (with some links).

I've also added a quick star rating, and a review/description
