Firefox users have advantage of some really awesome add-ons and utilities like Adblock Plus and NoScript. I can’t imagine browsing the web without these two Firefox add-ons.

While Opera is planning to bring extensions to the Opera Mobile, Chrome team constantly adding up new APIs for the extensions.
One good thing about Chrome is that it offers several built-in features for which you need to install (and then update every time!) a separate extension in Firefox. For example, Chrome supports Greasemonkey scripts natively while in Firefox, you need to install the Greasemonkey Add-on from the AMO.
There is another such integrated feature in Google Chrome, which works almost similar to the popular NoScript add-on of Firefox. Hence, you don’ t need a separate extension.
