    It is interesting that with the advent of Google Chrome that Firefox still has a ton of developers building extensions and tools. I suppose just because myself and many that I know personally use Chrome almost exclusively does not mean that everyone else does too. But it has got to be tough because now you need to build one for FF and one for Chrome too!
