    Hieu@ I do agree, WOT is one of the popular one. However sharing the same Add-ons that every one is sharing is not going to help any one.
    I though it will be great to share some thing new with my readers.

      You are right, but I am sure, many web surfers still ignorant about WOT. As a WOT community member I recommend every internet surfers to use it.
      The add-on Lazarus is new to me and I will try it soon. Thanks!

    Chrome is taking place of Firefox, however still firefox can beat chrome due to its rich features.
