    Hi, thank you for mentoning 3 of our extensions :) since October we’ve developed more extensions that truly deserve to be in the list, such as Magento Booster, which increases Magento performance significantly: http://www.aitoc.com/en/magento_booster.html
    and Product Matrix, which enables Admin to create and edit configurable products with two attributes in a convenient matrix form, where Admin can specify configuration for each simple associated product: http://www.aitoc.com/en/magentomods_product_matrix.html

    “Facebook Connect Social Shopping” seems to be really cool extension. I’ve looked the video about how it works and I must admit this is a good job.
    We would like to introduce one more social extension for Magento which we hope can give something useful.
    Social Booster connects 70 social networks with Magento. It allows to share any pages to the social sites you want.

    We are anxious to hear your feedbacks.

    Nice work getting these together. We’ve just released an extension which I think will soon become an essential extension to any Magento store: Moo Testimonials


    It’s essentially an install-and-forget extension to boost sales and reduce dropped carts. With things like gravatar display, auto-approval of testimonials and nice design, it will help Magento all stores for minimal effort.

    Nice extensions. But as for navigation I have found a better one – advanced navigation of gomage
    And as for oder editor – lightcheckout of gomage I like better. It has address book for shipping and billing address and opportunity to register and edit not creating new order.

    reading this article in 2013 – I use a different set. I prefer Facebook + bundle – and there’s plenty of free options. I like speedster (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/utilities/server-performance-caching/fooman-speedster.html) and auto backup tool (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/mageplace-cloud-backup-4781.html) – that’s my ‘must have’ list for every site.
