Firefox: Snoozing emails is a pretty common practice these days, so it makes sense to bring that same feature to your browser. Chrome has the Tab Snooze extension, and Firefox users can get it using Firefox's own Test Pilot extension.
When Google originally launched Chrome, it made a point of promoting the browser's performance over its competitors. But that was almost 10 years ago and both Chrome and Apple's desktop OS have changed... a lot. Given this large chunk of time, has Chrome remained on top of the pile when it comes to grunt?

Many of us spend most of our time on the web, but all too often browsing sessions can descend into a sprawling mess of memory-hogging, audio-playing tabs that bring your computer and your productivity to a shuddering halt.

When browser vendors make breaking changes to developer APIs, it's left to add-on and extension creators whether they fix their offerings. Usually, if it's a small change, no problem. But what about massive overhauls? For Luís Miguel, responsible for a number of popular Firefox add-ons, Mozilla's switch to the WebExtensions API this year will signal his exit from the add-on scene.
Browsers now come with all manner of developer tools for debugging websites, inspecting code and even making live changes. HTML, CSS and XML are easily interpreted and presented in human-readable form, but just-as-important formats such as JSON still come out as a wall of monospaced text. Soon that won't be the case for Firefox.
Most services you might use to save links for future reference or reading are part social network and part sharing service. They're designed to help you share those links, or make big lists.

Web of Trust is a popular extension, one we ourselves have recommended in the past. Unfortunately, that trust was misplaced — the add-on has been removed from Chrome and Firefox's online repositories after it was alleged the creators were selling user data.
