Collections of Add-ons

Firefox Collections Along with the new Firefox Add-ons web site, the people at Mozilla also treated us to a new feature called collections.  What are they?  Well, they are a group of related add-ons that are assembled for easy sharing. 

Here are some of my favorites I have found thus far:

  • Web Developer’s Toolbox
    12 add-ons to help you speed up the development process when it comes to web development and managing the ins and outs of your own web site.
  • Downloadsquad Pack
    Soup up your browser with selections from the Downloadsquad.com staff and some of our readers’ favorite add-ons. They’ll help make your browsing safer, more hassle free, and more productive!
  • Traveler’s Pack
    When the travel bug bites, these add-ons make it easy to plan, book and document your trip — without getting lost along the way.

That is just a small sample of what is out there, and who know – I might be working on a Firefox Facts Pack in the near future.  Creating your own pack is easy to do.  All you have to do is login to the addons.mozilla.org web site, and then visit the create a collection page.  From there, you give it a name, description, decide if you want your pack to be public or private, then start naming off your add-ons that will be included. 

What have been your favorite add-on collections, so far?

Firefox Extension Packs

Thanks to the Firefox extension, Mass Installer, you never have to worry about downloading all your favorite extensions again when doing a clean install of everybody’s favorite browser. The only work you have to do is collect the links to all of your favorite extensions (i.e. to the XPIs) and put them in a text file (one URL per line). Be sure to check out some of the “extension packs” that the folks at Lifehacker put together as well.
