Mozilla Labs recently announced the best Firefox extension winners in a contest held every year called Extend Firefox 3. In this contest, developers create extensions to extend the functionality of current features of Firefox.

This year’s Extend Firefox was launched back in March, and brought in over 100 entries. But only seven were chosen as the winners within three categories: Best New Add-on; Best Updated Add-on; Best Music Add-on.

The Tagmarks extension brings together the fast one-click bookmarking in Firefox 3 and the power of using Tags to organize your bookmarks. With Tagmarks, you have a lot of different options of icons to click when adding a site to your bookmarks, instead of just the Bookmark Star.

HandyTag (Install)

Best Updated Add-on

Read It Later (Install)

Read It Later allows you to save pages of interest to read later. It eliminates cluttering of bookmarks with sites that are merely of a one-time interest.

TagSifter (install)

Firefox 3 lets you tag your bookmarks, but it doesn’t give you a great way to browse your bookmarks by their tags. TagSifter tries to. Select a group of tags in the sidebar or menu, and TagSifter shows you all the related tags and bookmarks.

Bookmark Previews (Install)
