Firefox Download Day

Today is Firefox Download Day, and we're trying to set a Guinness World Record for the most downloads in 24 hours!

Firefox 3

I first downloaded Firefox when it was still at one of the early 0.x releases (I forget which one) way back in 2002, and it's been my favorite web browser ever since. One of the areas where Firefox consistently trounces Microsoft's Internet Explorer is in extensibility; the range of add-ons for Firefox is spectacular. Out of the thousands available, here are a few that I've found to be useful:

Adblock Plus (self-explanatory)
Book Burro (searches libraries and bookstores)
FireFTP (FTP client)
Googlepedia (displays Wikipedia articles along with Google search results)
Greasemonkey (javascript utility)
Password Exporter (also self-explanatory)
Sage (RSS feed reader)
User Agent Switcher (masks your browser's identity)

Don't settle for Microsoft mediocrity; the web can be so much better than that, and Firefox can show you how!

(Note: The sites have been getting hammered--a good sign for a record-breaking day!--so please be patient, and try again a few minutes later if your connection times out.)
