Here are a few of my favorite extensions, all tested with Firefox 1.0.1 on Windows XP and Mandrakelinux.

Another jump in Firefox marketshare.

W3schools has updated their website browser statistics, and the good news is that Firefox has jumped up another 2% in the past month to just a tiny bit less then 24 percent of their overall visitors.

And by following the right examples, we can help spread the usage of open source software without sacrificing the goal of software excellence.
