Top 5 Most Popular Twitter Add-ons for Firefox
Advertisement
#1
Twitter, the micro-blogging service, has seen a surge in popularity in the last few months. In keeping with its real-time nature, people want to be able to access it faster and easier and have it be available all the time not just when they're using the site. So we've gathered the most popular Twitter add-ons for Firefox to keep you connected all the time.


TwiterFox. By far the most popular, at least as far as downloads go, closing in on two million, this add-on places an icon on the lower right of your browser. Clicking on it will bring up TwitterFox. Its design is very stylish, similar to Twitter's, and it has three tabs with the most recent tweets, replies and messages. It also has a small text bar so you can write your tweets without having to go to the site. Simple, stylish and useful.

TwitterBar. With this add-on you can post your tweets without having to visit the website. However it takes a unique approach, since it doesn't have an interface of any sort and instead you write your tweets straight from the address bar and publish them by clicking on the little icon on the right of the address bar. Interesting and very simple, but do you really need to be that fast?

Power Twitter. This add-on modifies the twitter home page, adding some interesting new features like search and recent searches, search scoped to a specific user, inline YouTube, Flickr, TwitPic etc, url expansion,-link shrinking, -#hashtags and many others.

TwitBin. This offers much the same kind of information as TwitterFox except it does it in a panel on the right side of your browser, similar to the bookmarks panel. It has several tabs with the recent tweets, replies, direct messages as well as public and favorites.

Twitkit is very similar to TwitBin. It offers much the same functionality but also has followers and profile tab. It has several themes that you can use though it looks a little less polished than TwitBin. It also has a strange habit of showing multiple counts of the same message on the two Firefox installs I tested it on (3.0.10 and the latest 3.5 beta).
