    Thanks Harold! A great and useful article really. I currently work with 2 browsers. Firefox is what I use for Customer Support tasks and G-Chrome is my playground for our corporate blog and twitter. Now I see I can have my Chromium enhanced a little, thanks again 🙂

    By the way, I did kind of a similar research in Mozilla Firefox Add-ons, namely in their usage for website administration and picked 5 of those I like best and find most useful. If anyone is interested, welcome to svhostingblog.com.
