    Uses

    - Adding features

    Extensions are generally used to add functions to browsers. Examples of functions which an extension might add include RSS readers, bookmark organisers, toolbars, website-specific client programs, FTP, e-mail, mouse gestures, proxy server switching, or developer tools.

    - Modifying how you view web pages

    Many extensions can change the way content is displayed on a webpage. For example, Adblock extensions can prevent the browser from loading images that are advertisements.
