The 20 best Extensions for Firefox and Chrome 2011

Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are based on today’s most popular browsers on the network, and the proof is that they pose a real threat for Internet Explorer that seems to suddenly lose its leadership. The same happened to the Mozilla browser with the second place a few weeks ago. The newest browser, Google’s proposal, gets hold of one, in my opinion, deserved as it makes even more exciting even competition between the two favorites.

Mozilla Firefox has a gallery-based extensions that not only power but in many cases already consolidated reinvents a browser, and gradually the Mountain View are also gaining ground. Every year new additions and also launched new versions of existing extensions, and coming to the Christmas season did not want to create a list of 20 extensions that I think have been the most interesting 20 years . What do you think?
