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 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.

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.

    I love two addons: Forecastfox weather & Tab Scope. I really can’t live without them since I’ve found them here. It’s so cool to change the weather icons/add unlimited locations you’ve visited and switch between them in seconds in the first add and see what’s loading on the next page in the last one addon (surely, I always use it to enlarge the page’s thumbnails without opening them). Gosh! That’s also an amazing feature to change your themes or interface as easy as you breathe or surf the Web with the help on different themes. I love all the addons I utilize. They are very helpful and simple to use.

    I could not stress enough how much I love Firebug. It could come as a surprise for some that I have chosen Firebug amongst all fun Add-ons there are, but despite Firefox being my Web Browser of choice for day to day browsing, it is also one of my favourite Tools at work.

    I’m a Web Developer and I could not see myself doing my job without it. Firebug makes my life so much easier and my work so much enjoyable.

    So that’s it – Firebug it is 🙂

    Go on Firefox Team… I’m a big fan!!! 🙂

    To listen to a lot of serbian radio stations takes me to a very old time, many years ago and helps me inproving my low-rated knowledge of the serbian language. A real nice application for those who are living abroad but are homesick or just trying to improve their language abilities in serbian!

    But I like all my addons. If I had to choose my most prefered ones would be adblock plus, hide find bar, tab mix plus, url suffix (it would be great the last two ones could be integrated into firefox).

    Keep up the good work and thanks for making firefox, it makes internet better

    My favorite ‘Add-On’ is the ‘Side Bar.’ One icon lists all the downloaded ‘extensions.’ Above this
    list are tabs for ‘themes’ and ‘plug-ins.’
    Within the feature there is a button to check all extensions for latest [ updates ] version of
    The ‘Side Bar’ can also be hidden until needed, by moving the cursor /mouse to the left edge of
    screen. Or the user can lock the ‘Side Bar’ to view constantly.

  33. MG Orejudos wrote on :

    My favorite add-on among all of the add-ons I installed on my browser was the Cheevos , it is because it makes me entertained even though their is no musics and videos or else. It is like a point card that everytime I access my favorite websites( including for more add-ons) I can get points and achievements. That’s why I love Cheevos.

    More power MOZILLA!!!

    Unfortunately I am a newbie to computers but I love the music on lastfm. You can get the type of music you personally enjoy from any era which is a joy without comment or censor. I happen to enjoy the music from Broadway especially the era of the big musicals from the 1930’s to the 1960’s.
