	I just got through counting; on the machine I'm on right now, 
ignoring things grayed out, there are three dozen. At least eight 
defenses -- NoScript, noreferrer, adblock, flashblock, redirect remover, 
etc.; half a dozen or more are for tweaking tabbed browsing; and the rest 
are either reference tools like the Mozilla Internet Dictionary, or 
conveniences like colorful tabs, no squint, and speed dial.
