Winner Selection

10 finalists will be selected by a panel of judges on or about July 4, 2012. The community will then select the final three winners based on the following criteria:

  • Is your story compelling?
  • How creative is your use of your favorite add-on?
  • Does your review capture the “spirit” of the AMO community?

Voting will end on or about July 18, 2012, and the winners will be announced on or about August 1, 2012.

Judging Panel

  • Ken Saunders | Mozilla Contributor

Ken has been volunteering for Mozilla since 2005 and is the creator and project manager of Access Firefox. He’s also an Add-ons developer, Mozilla Accessibility steward, and a self-proclaimed add-ons junkie, with 56 add-ons enabled (68 installed).

  • Courtney Charet | Mozilla Contributor

Courtney has been a Persona designer and reviewer for over a year. Her Personas adorn the browsers of hundreds of thousands of Firefox users, who love her sparkly, flowing designs.

  • Jorge Villalobos | Add-ons Developer Relations Lead

Jorge is the Add-ons Developer Relations Lead at Mozilla. He manages the add-ons review team, add-on compatibility, and documentation. You’ll usually find him in his native Costa Rica, glued to his laptop and avoiding sunlight.

  • Matej Novak | Mozilla Scribe

Matej is Mozilla’s resident copywriter and all-around word guy. When he’s not working on a website or campaign, you’ll likely find him in a spirited debate about some obscure point of grammar or style—either with someone else or himself.

    Приветствую дополнение повышающие безопасность пользователя, поистине почти всем маст-хевв, это No Script и Adblock Plus. Вопрос почему? Да как всегда, человеческий фактор, ну зайдет пользователь на сайт вредоносный, 100% зайдет, что-бы вы не делали, все мы грешны, и ловим на таких сайтах троянцев и прочих червячков, имея No Script мы уже защищены на 50%, иногда и полностью, а это класс. Из практики ПК с Фаерфоксом и плагином No Script проработал пол года, на нем не стояло никакого антивируса, да-да вообще ничего, и после полу года была сделана проверка – что думаете нашлись вирусы??…Нет, вирусов не было, все что можно было словить заблокировано No Script, вот так.

    It is kinda hard to narrow down to one favorite add on, but currently I’ve been using Personas Plus 1.6.2 to rotate through my many favorites and try out new personas. The next one in line of my favorite add on is Collusion 0.16.3 to check on those snooping on me.

    Hi friends.
    my fav. firefox add-ons are

    “Xmarks 4.1.0″ = With this I Synchronize with Bookmarks and password.it is the most secure way to get syncd. trust me and use it.

    “ADBLOCK PLUS 2.0.3″=IT IS ANOTHER MOST IMPORTANT ADD-ON. use this to block any types of unnecessary advertisement for your safe browsing.
