Winners of the Extend Firefox 2 Contest
The results of the contest were announced on March 12 and best extensions according to the jury, which included J. J. Garrett, the inventor of the term Ajax, are provided below.
Most of these extensions (those winning at least) were here for a long time, so congratulations from the organizers to candidates to have provided the software on time seem rather superfluous.
