One reason of Firefox to be best is the availability of thousands of free plugins / addons out there. You just go to the Firefox addons official resource and download plugins / addons for your Firefox to make your work more easy. Have you ever thought that these plugins can get your computer’s privacy compromised. Yep! Developers from around the world develop these plugins for you to use. Plugins reside with the same browser you use to buy things online using your credit card and the same browser is used to authenticate your username and password with different online services you use. Time to check your browser’s plugins for reliability, version or upgrade alert and vulnerability scan.

Mozilla provides online service ‘Plugin Check’ to Keep your Plugins up to date. Just load the plugins check page in your browser and you will be notified about plugins you have got in browser and whether these are up-to-date or need to be updated. Further more you can easily distinguish between reliable plugins and unreliable plugins that might have come from outside source (suspicious developer). ‘Research’ Button will alert you about any plugin that needs to be checked closely for reliability. Because these plugins do not have version record with Mozilla.
