Popular Bookmark Add-ons for Firefox

So which bookmark add-ons for Firefox are downloaded most often?  Here are the top ten most downloaded bookmark extensions for the browser.

    • SmarterFox – Browse faster by speeding up common tasks – faster downloading, searching, visiting favorites, copy & paste, and more.
    • Xmarks (formerly Foxmarks) – Xmarks is the #1 bookmarking add-on. Install it on all your computers to keep your bookmarks and (optionally) passwords backed up and synchronized.
    • Delicious Bookmarks – Delicious Bookmarks is the official Firefox add-on for Delicious, the world’s leading social bookmarking service.
    • StumbleUpon- StumbleUpon discovers web sites based on your interests, learns what you like and brings you more.
    • Speed Dial – Quicker direct access to your most visited web sites and saved links.
    • Google Toolbar – Not sure why people are still using this, however it did make it on my list of non-evil toolbars, so go figure.
    • Brief -  Brief makes reading RSS feeds as easy and intuitive as it gets. Designed to have exactly the right set of features, it is powerful and simple at the same time.
    • Fast Dial – Much like Speed Dial, this add-on gives you a quick visual way to access a number of web sites all from one page; showing thumbnails for each.
    • iMacros – Automate Firefox. Record and replay repetitious work. If you love the Firefox web browser, but are tired of repetitive tasks like visiting the same sites every days, filling out forms, and remembering passwords, then iMacros for Firefox is the solution you've been dreaming of!
    • Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar – This add-on does exactly what you would expect, it gives you multiple bookmark rows.  Yes, I like it when they name add-ons about what they do. 

    There you have it, these add-ons have been downloaded more times than any other, and all will help you in one way, shape, or form with your bookmarks.  Have another favorite that you think deserves to be on the list?  Leave a comment, and tell me why.

    Recover Lost Data

    Ever lost something you just typed into a web form, and wanted to get it back? Lazarus: Form Recovery, a security related add-on for Firefox, will auto-save anything you type into forms as you type. 

    Have a server crash?

    Did the page timeout?

    Did Firefox go down an a blaze of glory? 

    No matter what the problem, you can go back to the form, right-click your mouse, choose "recover form" and get your information back.

    Here is a little more information about Lazarus: Form Recovery from the add-on developer:

    Lazarus works on web forms, WYSIWYG editors and AJAXified forms and will save you from almost any given server, browser, or connection problems that might otherwise cause you to lose your work.  Lazarus now comes with 2048-bit RSA and 256-bit AES hybrid encryption so your data is more secure than ever! Lazarus 2.0 also includes search functionality so you can recover text even if you can no longer find the original form you entered it into.

    If you often run into the situation where you just lost what you typed, this add-on for Firefox is your perfect proverbial right-hand man.  You can pickup the Lazarus: Form Recovery add-on for Firefox from the Firefox Add-ons site.
