We love Firefox and all tend to use it to surf the net, and one of the best aspects of Firefox is its add-ons, letting you customise it to make your job easier and to just have fun! Here’s our list of the best of the bunch for business.

Following the launch of its latest version, Firefox is fast becoming the browser of choice for many business users due to its speed, reliability, and constantly evolving selection of add-ons. We review and compile the ten best business add-ons you absolutely cannot afford to be without.

Morning Coffee

How much time do you waste every morning typing in the addresses of the same websites you visit day-in-day-out? Okay, it’s probably not that much, maybe a few minutes each week – however, this is a few minutes you can now reclaim with the help of Firefox’s Morning Coffee.

Morning Coffee is essentially a web page management application that allows you to allocate specific web sites to certain days of the week. The option to have certain web sites – the ones you visit every morning – open automatically once Firefox is launched is a particularly useful time saving tool, cutting out the hassle of opening them all individually.

Additionally, the ability to configure each day of the week around specific routines, or sites you require on individual days, has many business applications and cuts out the temptation of needless web browsing when you should be working.

However, the add-on’s strongest point is that it allows you to separate your work and leisure web based routines – ensuring the two never meet.

Xmarks

Xmarks, previously known as Foxmarks, is an advanced bookmarking add-on that synchronises your bookmarks. There is also an option to synchronise all your passwords, meaning you only have to log into Xmarks once to access numerous sites that require your password, saving you valuable time when in work, as well as taking the complexity out of personal encryption.

Also, Xmarks can sync across browsers – Safari, IE, Opera, Firefox – as well as between machines. This means that whether on your work or personal computer, your bookmarks are accessible and are fully backed up – ideal for professionals that analyse and save a lot of web-based data.

Once installed, a blue icon appears in your address bar. By clicking this icon, you can view how popular the website is and view links to similar websites, which is a handy tool for revealing useful sites you may have overlooked – a must for any professional requiring a wide spectrum of focussed information at their fingertips

TwitterFox

Twitter is becoming increasingly important to modern business, whether you’re advertising products, finding potential new customers and business, or simply communicating with your followers – Twitter is an essential business tool.

TwitterFox is a very simple add-on, much like the actual website. Once you have the add-on installed, you simply register an account – or as many as you want – and it opens in the bottom right hand corner of your browser, keeping you constantly updated with Tweets all day long.
