There are plenty of Drupal Modules that you can install for your site as add-ons. What we liked best about Drupal modules is that it already comes pre-shipped with several modules. So a standard distribution contains several useful modules that you can simple point, click and enable.
Some examples of such pre-shipped modules are: archive that displays a calendar to navigate old content, book which allows users to collaboratively author a book, forums for threaded discussions about general topics, paths that enable renaming URLs for search engines, polls to capture votes on different topics in the form of multiple choice questions, and much more.
You can also download many user contributed modules from the Drupal site that are not pre-shipped in the standard distribution. You can see the full list of modules at: http://drupal.org/project/Modules. Here are some modules that we found interesting: API: This is an implementation of a subset of the Doxygen documentation generator specification, tuned to produce output that best benefits the Drupal code base. This module was designed to produce the Drupal developer documentation available at drupaldocs.org. http://drupal.org/node/6018
Banner: The banner.module allows you to display ads on your Drupal website. It randomly displays the banners, and automatically tracks how many times each is displayed and clicked. Users of your website can be given ownership of banners, and be allowed to modify certain settings and view statistics. Supports numerous graphic formats, flash animations, and text. http://drupal.org/project/banner
Chatbox: This is a simple chatbox module. It allows your site's visitors to chat in an HTML interface. http://drupal.org/project/chatbox
Database Administration: The dba module provides Drupal administrators with direct access to their Drupal database tables from within the standard Drupal user interface. It is possible to execute scripts to create and alter tables, to backup one or more tables, to view/edit/delete data within tables, and to empty or drop tables. If using MySQL, it is also possible to check and repair tables. http://drupal.org/project/dba
