What is an add-on manager?
An add-on manager in applications used to access the Internet is an administrative section or process that records all utilities used by that application. Web browsers often use add-ons and add-on managers that can be installed on client systems or server systems depending on the type of add-on. Firefox and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) are examples of applications that use add-on managers.
Options are available to customize the web user experience. An add-on manager helps users make the most of their time on the web. Add-ons are simply software applications that allow an application to perform better and perform more tasks than originally planned. Some examples of add-ons are Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, and Image Viewer, all of which are contained in a single application such as a web browser. An add-on manager (in a web browser) saves a user's preferences so that they don't have to change the settings every time they log in.
