    Another great effort from fireCAT people. They have actually made the firefox a security testing and auditing platform.

    Do you have to install every extension seperately, or is there a package that contain them all, or one where you can choose which to enable?

    addict: No it’s just a map or outline of which extensions are suitable for security use – there’s no package or similar. It’s up to you to install separately. You don’t have to install all either, you can choose which are most relevant to you.

    This has been out for a little while now, v1.2, anyway it doesnt take that long to download the extensions and as mentioned you can customize the extension to what you actually need
