Magento has been taking the eCommerce software world by storm. We’ve been hearing a lot about Magento as a well-designed and well-executed software product, but you’ve got to hand it to the Magento team for awesome community-focused resources like Magento Connect.

Magento’s robust platform provides innumerable benefits for our customers, including product comparisons, product reviews, multiple ship-to addresses, and one-page checkout, and the open-source platform will allow us to extend Magento to meet our growing needs, given our obsession for innovation.
