(Updated February 2007) Our Top 10 Firefox Add-ons list is based on a review of more than a dozen lists published by colleagues, friends, and website pros. Given the length of the content, we created a stand-alone page and included the Firefox add-on, plug-in, and extension lists used as references. Here's the link:
Choosing the best Firefox add-ons has become a personal preference given there are thousands available. Try a few and stick with the ones that enhance your surfing experience, save you time with repeated tasks, and don't require a lot of maintenance.
Most pro bloggers and website developers use Firefox because of the enhanced features and benefits it offers. To download Firefox – it's free and easy to install – go to this link.

Hat tip to Read/Write Web for inspiring us to create a Top 10 Firefox Add-on List. It's fun looking at all of the possibilities.
Following the old adage "less is more" can improve your website or blog. Graphic artists generally recommend as much white space as possible; hence, the creation of "Minimalist WordPress Themes."
Studies have proven that the eyes "bounce around" and visitors fatigue quickly (i.e., leave your website, blog, or ad) when there is too much to look at on any given page. Take any popular magazine and look at the ads on the back cover or inside front cover spread. You'll probably see a lot of space with little text. Be careful, some of the ads are image or branding ads, which are not used to incite action by the viewer. Include enough content to make your message concise, clear, and visually pleasing, but don't over do it.
