In the latest browser wars, the browser usage statistics show that Firefox has almost 50% of the market share. Other than how easier it is to use and how fast it is, one of the reasons web users love Firefox is because of their massive library of add-ons. So since we’re all soccer fans, I thought I’d share five favorite Firefox add-ons — and they’re all free.
- FootieFox: This is without a doubt the best Firefox add-on out there for soccer fans. It updates you via your browser whenever a goal is scored in 200 leagues and cup tournaments from 60 countries worldwide. The add-on integrates into the bottom right corner of your Firefox browser, and features several configurations and options so you can read match reports, latest scores, team details and more.

- Hattrick LiveFox: If you’ve played the online game Hattrick before, you know that it’s free and incredibly addictive. But it’s also a pain to keep track of the live games. Thankfully, there’s a Firefox add-on that does that for you where you can watch up to 10 matches at the same time with feedback on the type of chances or goals scored as well as a live updating league table.

- Real Football: This Firefox add-on allows you to change the design of your Firefox browser to a soccer theme. It changes the color scheme to a light green and displays soccer-related icons. Available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8541
- Euro Football: This add-on too changes the design of your Firefox browser into an unmistakeable soccer look-and-feel. The design is clean and it’s a good way to remind you and your friends what is your favorite sport. Available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9964
- SoccerFox SVG: The last Firefox add-on out of the five is also a soccer theme add-on, which allows you to turn your Firefox into a soccer-themed browser. This one is quite different though. Instead of looking sleak and modern, the design goes for a retro 8-bit look-and-feel (see preview here). Available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5868
