I am a sucker for efficiency. I like being super efficient, a good time manager, productive and well, again, efficient. I would romance efficiency, if that was humanly possible.

On Windows.Appstorm, over the next few weeks, the writers on the site are going to be giving you more information about their workflows. As the title suggests, each writer will show you the apps they use to help write the articles you read and love. The series will talk about the apps from a very personal view and if we’ve done reviews of the apps in the past we will link them.

Thanks to its themes, tabs and endless list of add-ons, there is really nothing you can not do here and this post could go on to fill a book. However, we don’t have that much space, but we can hit some of the highlights.

The very fact that you are reading these words means that you make use of the internet. You probably use it for all sorts of things from downloading software and checking the news to keeping in touch with friends and using social networks.

You’re undoubtedly aware that using the internet can mean compromising your privacy, and this is particularly true if you are a social networker. Privacyfix is an interesting add-on for Chrome and Firefox that enables you to check your privacy settings on Facebook, Google and other sites and change those that might reveal too much information about you.
