So Firefox 3.5 is out and I’m looking forward to trying it, but I can wait. Why? I use a number of extensions and I don’t want to be without them. Courtesy of the Extension List Dumper extension, here are the addons that I now use.
There really should be an easy way within Firefox to see which extensions you are now using will work or have upgrades for the most recent version of the browser. Is there an extension for that?
Also see the CNet story “Firefox add-ons: Which work in 3.5?”.
Also see the Mozilla Firefox add-on compatibility report.
Update: I decided to move to v 3.5 on my iMac/OS X but will stay on v 3.0.11 on my Lenovo work ThinkPad until the latest version is officially supported in the Ubuntu repositories. That way I can get experience with the new version while not abandoning my working environment.
Application: Firefox 3.0.11 (2009060308)
