In fact, Firefox still has a lot of life. Proof of them are extensions, which continue to grow and improve with each new version, and allow the browser completely adapt to your tastes and needs. So if Firefox is your inseparable companion of long hours at the computer, do not miss this list of extensions to make your relationship even better.
