Although Mozilla is reviewing the extensions available in the official add-ons store for Firefox, the process is now working using the "publish first/review later" approach. However, the Recommended Extensions program comes with a list of curated extensions that comply with Mozilla's "highest standards of security, utility, and user experience."

Many Firefox users who tried other browsers always got back to Mozilla's creation because there was some extension that provided something that the competition couldn't deliver. However, there are a lot of extensions available for Firefox and some of them fail to live up to the expectations. Thankfully, the recently announced Recommended Extensions program aims to provide nothing but the best.

Firefox Recommended Extensions is expected to kick off later this summer and "will foster a curated list of extensions that meet our highest standards of security, utility, and user experience." Even more, the recommended extensions will be visible across all Mozilla websites and products, including addons.mozilla.org (AMO).

Right now, Mozilla is working on identifying the candidates for the aforementioned list. Selected developers will be contacted starting later this month and the changes on AMO should become visible by the end of June. Recommended extensions will be distinguishable thanks to special badges, while AMO search results and filtering will push them higher (most likely similar to Google's sponsored search results).

The extensions included in the list should be really good at what they do, provide a top user experience, relevant to a general audience, and also safe. If you would be one of the curators, what Firefox extensions would you add to the list? Give us some names in the comments section, we're looking forward to your suggestions.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
