    Hi Ann and merry christmas for the first time from me 😉

    Out of your nice compilation I picked the word counter for me. The other add ons are available in some add ons I’ve already got or I wouldn’t save time by using addons to do what i must. Which of them do you use yourself?

    Nice weekend now!

    I use the Kall Out for search. It’s really cool actually. Much easier and more convenient than opening a new tab. 🙂
