Several Firefox add-ons have gone out be really very popular, few I can think of include Greasemonkey and Firebug. However, what are the popular Firefox add-on categories?

A new blog post from a Mozilla Add-ons Product Manager, Justin Scott, has reveled the most popular add-ons categories which are browsed at Firefox add-ons site. The data available is for January 5th 2010. The most popular categories browsed are Themes, bookmarking, plugins, appearance, search tools and download management.

According to Justin, most of the category pages see a high bounce rate, which is a bit concerning for them. However, these stats do not include the individual add-on pages. Do you visit the Firefox add-on gallery frequently? How many categories do you browse on a regular basis?

    "According to Justin, most of the category pages see a high bounce rate, which is a bit concerning for them" – Now what does he mean by bounce rate?

    Anyway, I for one do need to frequent the add-ons website a lot, for a pretty lame reason – monthly download limits imposed by my ISP. What I do is every 2 weeks or once a month I do a check on all the add-ons that I have installed and that have updates available.

    Next I fire IE7 (!!!) and download all these updated add-ons as xpi files (Firefox won't allow me to download them, rather it installs them directly), copy them on a pen drive and install them in Firefox on my 2 Windows & 2 Ubuntu installs. :)

    Phew!
