Mozilla & Gecko clones "The Mozilla development community has rolled out the latest beta of its Firefox 3.6 browser. In addition to the usual round of bug fixes, Firefox 3.6 beta version 5, comes with a number of new features and performance enhancements. The browser offers the ability for users to easily reskin the browsers with a new visual theme. The new version can also run scripts asynchronously, which should speed load times of pages that have multiple scripts. The new release also aims to appease cutting-edge developers, with support for various new standards."

Probably AdBlock+, which is available for Chrome. However, in general, I get the feeling that the whole extension thing is:

1. A security bomb waiting to go off.
2. Mozilla Corporation's own flavor of 'user lock in'.

I avoid them. But then again, I avoid Firefox, as well.

I avoid FF because the current Epiphany is a better browser. I merely note where Firefox is almost certainly headed for trouble. Your complacency is duely noted. But rest assured that after the shit hits the fan, you'll still be able to either deny the problem outright, or blame it on Microsoft in some way.
