What Firefox add on to recommend
My friends have recommended that I start using Firefox because I’ve been complaining how slow my browser sometimes gets. Until now, I have been using Internet Explorer but have now a couple of times used Firefox as well. It really seems faster. I wonder why that is. In any case, I noticed that there are some kind of add ons available. Should I use those as well? What are they good for?
Thanks for the answers already in advance!
