That's like asking how long is a piece of string, since everyone's needs
are different. However I can comment that I currently have 22 add-ons
installed and enabled, and another half dozen or so installed but
disabled.

Obviously not. FlagFox shows a little flag for the country of the
website you're visiting, and I doubt it takes as many resources as some
Gmail add-ons I have.
