There are many cathegories to filter addons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/ sadly none to sort by popularity. A popularity filter to list firefox addons would be a great feature.
Speaking of great features, addons.mozilla.org should not use google-analytics.com Mozilla on the one hand promotes privacy or atleast makes the impression of doing so, but on the other hand tracks their users by default and uses google analytics on their extensions website. There are privacy friendly alternatives to google analytics, why did Mozilla decide to use an invasive bigtech option? It is very unlikely for mozilla to quit using google analytics just because of this thread, and even if i asked on the apropriate forum or email chances are nothing will change. It's just sad mozilla uses google analytics, there's nothing else to say.
Another question, Mozilla in this article https://addons.mozilla.org/blog/firefoxs-most-popular-innovative-browser-extensions-of-2021/ claims that there have been a total of 133 million visits to addons.mozilla.org However this site https://www.similarweb.com/website/addons.mozilla.org/#overview claims that addons.mozilla.org had a total of 10.9 million visits over time, which seems incorrect since ublockorigin alone already has 7 million+ users. I've always thought that similarweb is a reputable source, or maybe not?
