Described as the Facebook of the business world, LinkedIn
allows you to network with others in your profession. If you’re
a fan of the site then the official LinkedIn Companion for Firefox
extension is a must.
The add-on does three main things. The first is to add a button
beneath the bookmarks toolbar that displays a menu, showing
shortcuts to various sections of the LinkedIn Web site. It also
allows you to share the Web page you’re browsing on your LinkedIn
profile, and tracks recently-viewed profiles.
Secondly, the extension adds LinkedIn entries to the Firefox
search box so you can quickly search both the LinkedIn site and
also its jobs section.
Note: This link takes you to the add-on’s page
at Mozilla.org, where you can automatically install the file into
your Firefox browser.
