Addons are scripts loaded in a browser or in the standalone client, usually for quality-of-life features. Addons can change the user interface, add extra statistics, etc. This is different from modding as it only changes your client and can't add new areas or enemies or other content.
Addons can be found here: https://gitlab.com/Isleward-Modding/addons
The most popular addon is waddon2.
