When I used to use Firefox it came with tons of Extensions for it but then Google chrome came out so I took a leap and changed. I run many Extensions in Google chrome because, like Firefox it comes with loads of extensions but i wondered Does Google chrome have more extensions and add ons than the old, wise Firefox has. What do people think and what extensions do you run?

Firefox has way more extensions.

I run these:

  • Tab Mix Plus: let's me put the tab bar at the bottom and double click tabs to close them. Not available for Chrome. :(
  • QuickDrag: drag & drop links/images anywhere to open in a new tab. There's a similar addon for Chrome but it sucks, it doesn't always work and can't do image+link drag & dropping right.
  • Flashgot. Perfect for download managers. Not available for chrome :(
  • Firebug. It's just the most awesome add-on ever, if you develop websites, get this now. There is a Chrome version :)
  • Echofon. Twitter client. There is Chromed Bird for Google Chrome :)
  • Greasemonkey. Not needed in Chrome :)

It would be very hard to count all of the extensions...

No, firefox has like a billion apps for aesthetics and design xD plus more years of development. Probably the other apps have been made for Chrome though but it would be difficult to find each app the two of them have.

All I know is they both have a lot more than Safari.
