I would judge that "about" is the general used collocation.

72 usages against 6 for "over" in the British National Corpus

725 against 66 in the American National Corpus.

Thank you dear. Could anyone tell me what does ''add on'' mean? And is there any difference between add and add on? With an example please.

As in the mathematical sense (to add a series of numbers) add is an action ("I would like to add a built-in cell phone to my new vehicle.") while add on (or add-on) is an object, typically optional ("A built-in cell phone is available as an add-on.").

If you use Firefox or Thunderbird, there are numerous add-ons available to modify performance.

At the simplest, you add an add-on.
