Great site, great people, two thumbs up! What is the difference between Add-ons and Add-Ins. Thanks!

Cel, an Add-on often refers to a program like a tool bar or a media player flash that you can add on to your Internet  browser to perform additional functions.


Add in refers to a component such as a graphics card or additional memory, that you can add to a computer to improve its capabilities. They can sometimes also be referred to as an Add-on.

Hope that clears things up.
