Mozilla FireFox is one of the best browsers out there in the market and it's  "Open Source".  Mozilla is in constant battle with all other tech giants over the "Privacy" issue. Mozilla wants everything transparent, means a user must have the control over the things he's doing on the internet. 

One of the attractions of FireFox is the "Add-ons". Usually, these add-ons are developed by programmers related to Mozilla FireFox Community. The add-ons give extra power to the browser.
