FireFox SEO Extensions – the Ultimate Collection

FireFox is the most customizable browser I am aware of and hence it is my favorite one. A while ago posting a huge overview of SEO tools I promised to compile a similar list of available FireFox SEO extensions; and so here I am.

Please mind I don’t use all of them (as that’s impossible, I guess) – you can see that in "How often I use it" column – but that doesn’t mean I do not recommend them; it only means I either didn’t need those add-ons or got used to using something else. Besides, some of the extensions listed might fail to work on the latest FireFox version but I still decided to include them as not everyone now uses the latest version.
