Yahoo! Toolbar is a browser extension for Internet Explorer and Firefox that gives users quick access to email, weather, stock reports and Facebook. The Facebook integration brings in a user’s News Feed, profile and notifications.

No. 2 How Hipster Are You? is a quiz app that includes a series of questions to determine a user’s “hipster” percentage. The app has grown incredibly quickly from users posting their results to Timeline and friends seeing the activity in News Feed.

Three promotional tab applications made the list: No. 4 SimCity Social: Get free stuff, No. 9 Embassy Suites 366 Days of More Sweepstakes and No. 15 Dove Men+Care – Dadism Sweeps.
