Top 5 Firefox Social Networking Tools

Filed under
Moz/FF

This week TechNewsWorld takes a look at the top five must-have social networking tools for the Mozilla Firefox desktop environment. Social networks have taken mobile by storm, but the PC is still a player -- particularly based on its copious screen real estate.

Add-ons are sometimes called "Extensions" after they have been installed.
