Best Firefox Extensions - A Useful List of Tools For Your Internet Treasure Hunting

A fellow blogger over at Jeremy's Blog of Tech/Science Related Articles turned me on to this list of great Firefox extensions that every internet hunter needs. While I don't want to debate the merits of all internet browsers, I do know that several of my upcoming lessons will rely on Firefox extensions, and there really is no substitute for giving you the tools you need to make money on the internet.
