Visual Studio provides a rich extensibility model that developers at Microsoft and in the community have taken advantage of to provide a host of quality add-ins. Some add-ins contribute significant how-did-I-live-without-this functionality, while others just help you automate that small redundant task you constantly find yourself performing.
This article provides some of the best Visual Studio add-ins available today that can be downloaded for free. (Click on the links to explore them !!!)

There are also a lot of add-ins that can be purchased for a reasonable price(Though, I never bought one …) for some better options, as in some cases they can add some tremendous functionality to the IDE..
Happy Coding !!!
