Many people are switching to G’s Chrome. Some people are not aware that Google Chrome tracks everything you do on Chrome weather your logged into your account or not. So I still use Firefox for a more private browsing experance. Plus there are so many useful Add-Ons to make surfing for what I want easier. Here are my most useful Add-Ons for Firefox.
