You can already download and install as many Firefox add-ons as you like, but now the Mozilla Foundation has made it a lot easier to customize your Firefox installation with a new Web application.
Termed Fashion Your Firefox, the Web application, in much the same manner that Linux and BSD distros are functionally categorized on this site, lists Firefox add-ons in “activity-based categories”. According to the press release:
Fashion Your Firefox presents add-ons in activity-based categories that make them easy to find and install. Add-ons are tiny pieces of software that add new features or functionality to Firefox, letting people customize their browser to meet their tastes. There are currently more than 1 billion downloads of Firefox add-ons.
Categories in Fashion Your Firefox include:
- Shutterbug: View and share pictures and videos online
- Rock Star: Listen to music while surfing, working, emailing or researching online
- News Junkie: Get the most up-to-date news and weather
- Shopaholic: Shop and take advantage of online deals
