Mozilla Labs announces the winners of their official Extend Firefox 3 Contest, and they’re an impressive crop of new and updated extensions for your favorite browser. I was honored to serve on the judging panel for this year’s contest (alongside some huge names in the browser biz), and we rated the entries based on how easy they were to use, and how well they took advantage of new features in Firefox 3. Let’s take a look at this year’s best new and updated add-on grand prize winners.
Note: There are gadzillions of indispensable and innovative Firefox extensions out there, but this is the Extend Firefox 3 contest. Therefore, you’ll notice the winners’ entries primarily involve new Firefox 3-specific features, like bookmark tags and web page preview capabilities.
Best New Add-ons
The best new add-on grand prizes are “awarded for entries that make use of new capabilities being introduced in Firefox 3 and that demonstrate excellence in user experience, innovativeness, and use of open standards.” Here are your best new add-on contest winners.
