WordPress fans from far and wide congregated this weekend in San Francisco for WordCamp 2008. There is some great coverage in a live blogging style over at The Web Life. One of the interesting tidbits that I found over there was a list of the top 10 WordPress plugins.

Here’s a quote:

For every feature that we could add to WordPress, there is a plugin for it. Wouldn’t it be interesting to look at the usage of these and guage where should we go with it.

They also state that there are 4.96 average plugins per blog. The most a user has installed is 1290; 526 of those are active.

The post goes on to list the top 10 plugins…sans links. But I have taken the time to make your journey to them a little easier by providing them in my list below. Also, no information was provided as to the basis for how this list was calculated.
