Browser add-ons are usually free components that extend the capabilities of modern browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox or Opera. Each of these browsers has many add-ons or extensions, which can be downloaded from either add-on websites or the browser’s add-on marketplace, such as the Chrome Web Store, Firefox Add-ons, or Opera Add-ons. These small programs are specialized tools that can, for example, improve the search for information or take care of the correct spelling, support downloading files, block advertisements, take screenshots, or offer one of the thousands of other possibilities.
When we want to increase the functionality of our browser, or completely change the way it works, we visit one of the stores with add-ons and install the selected extension. The rankings of downloads of the most popular extensions will help us choose. Another facilitator is the clear division of browser extensions into categories such as Privacy and security, Productivity, Entertainment, Translation, or News and Weather.
