Web browsers and web application testing tools such as Mozilla's Firefox, OWASP's Zed Attack Proxy and Portswigger's Burp Suite constantly evolve and grow to help us test web applications more easily and thoroughly. Even with their core awesomeness, sometimes these tools don't do have the built-in features that make our jobs as easy as they could be. That is where their extensibility comes into play. These tools have online, free repositories of add-ons and extensions that testers can use to make web content more readable, to test more deeply and to achieve their testing goals.
