After launching a first set of add-on kits under the suggestive name of Fashion Your Firefox a few months ago, Mozilla have taken a step beyond in themed packs with the so called Add-on Collections. Collections are customizable groups of related add-ons that anyone can create and share on the Mozilla website. In this way you can easily keep track of new updates for your favorite add-ons, create personal packs with your basic add-on kit for quick browser installations and share new exciting add-ons with your friends online.
Collections have now their own section in the Mozilla Add-on official website – which, by the way, has been redesigned. From here you can browse collections by popularity, and also check Editor’s picks and latest additions to the site. You can also subscribe to any collections you like, and create your own. Creating a personal collection is as easy as filling in a form with a name, description and a choice of a few selected add-ons. Plus, they can be made public or restricted to only people you invite.
But the best way to keep track of your favorite collections and manage the ones created by you is probably installing the Collector add-on. This add-on has been especially designed to keep track of any updates in the collections you’ve subscribed to, and let you update your own collections with new additions, all directly from your browser.
