Seven Firefox Plug-ins That Improve Online Privacy
Time travel isn't an option for securing my browser. But Firefox gives me it all and then some. The number-two browser (with 32 percent market share), Firefox is a cross platform, standards based, open source browser. It is feature rich and has supernumerary add-ons to extend its functionality. In the spirit of Open Source, its community maintains a focus on security and has a strong record of swiftly patching known vulnerabilities, faster in some cases than most others in the market.
Firefox isn't just a killer app; it's also a pillar of the Internet community. When it comes to security and privacy, the Firefox picture is compelling, with over 600 plug-ins related to privacy and security. Acknowledging the current state of privacy and security, these plug-ins are a welcome addition to any browsing experience.
My goal in this article is to highlight a few of my favorites with the hopes that you too will take advantage of them.
