Top 10 Plugins for 2013

Eclipse users have a great selection of plugins and tools that can help developers extend Eclipse. Eclipse Marketplace makes it easy to discover new plugins and Eclipse Marketplace Client makes it simple to install directly into Eclipse. If you haven’t used Eclipse Marketplace Client, I’d recommend giving it a try from the Eclipse>Help>Eclipse Marketplace menu item.

In 2013, 752 products were successfully installed over 3,800,000 times from the Eclipse Marketplace Client. The top 10 most popular products in 2013 were:
