Blue Mozilla Firefox

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Best straightforward Firefox logo based skin I've seen thus far. Very well done. A particularly good fit for Australis, however it is using an old version of the logo.

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Very useful and good UI. Firefox needs to have something like this built-in.

Dark Fox

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Very good skin with stylized Firefox logo. Good fit for Australis now that all the menus and buttons need to be on the right, where the logo is shown. Things line up nicely.

Quick Search Bar

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Awesome! One of my favorite addons. Makes the search field actually usable. Much better UX than the default field. (click a search engine icon to select field for that engine; clears text and resets to icons after usage) Much preferred over Searchbar Autosizer.

New version 5.0a1 even supports Australis now. (though, please put in changelog text for your versions)

AutoPagerize

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

I've been using this for a while now and find it to be a pretty good lightweight replacement for Autopager. Sure, it doesn't work with everything, but I think it breaks less often.

Quick Search Bar

broken in Firefox 20 Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This addon doesn't always work in Firefox 20 (currently in Aurora). I emailed the listed address last month but have not gotten a response, so posting here in the hopes that this extension is not abandoned. The Error Console has exceptions which indicate that it may be due to an async API change (see Mozilla bug 760036).

SPDY indicator

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Simple, well designed, and useful. Also nice that it also shows a greyed out icon for pages not through SPDY but containing resources that are. Thanks for writing this.

Browse By Name

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Thank you Ehsan for creating a quick extension to bring back this nice feature, and thanks for streamlining out the JetPack SDK bloat and making this thing under 1KB upon request in only a matter of minutes. This is now quite possibly the most simple extension code in existence. Wonderful! :)

Is It Compatible?

simple and works Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Simple extension and does exactly what is says on the tin. Just what I was looking for and doesn't do too much I don't need.

Strata40

very nice Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Looks wonderful and works under Linux nicely. A very nice theme. Only obvious thing missing is EV support which would be good, but isn't a deal-breaker. I also wish the small icons mode were a little slimmer, but this is still a 5 star worthy theme even with these minor issues. Well done.

Tooltip Plus

nice Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Error I previously noted was fixed, thanks. Support methods were also added at some point. I still have some issues with icons here on Linux, though.

Simple and useful idea. I've been looking for something to do this for a while now, so thanks for creating an updated version of this concept.

Personas

meh... Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

This is a nifty extension to let people skin their browser without resorting to full themes, but in my case I don't see the point. Personally, I'd rather just install a few extensions to minimize the clutter and have an interface small enough that it doesn't get in the way and I don't need to make it look not-ugly. Use small toolbar icons plus an extension like Personal Menu or Tiny Menu and call it a day. Ditch the menu bar and the bookmarks bar and slim everything down and there's nowhere for me to put a pretty picture. ;)

For those of you who actually want the pretty picture, well, it works. It's just my opinion that this feels like a bit of a novelty item rather than something many people would actually use. There are some rather nice images available, though. I'm sure some people will like it but it's not for everyone.

Search Cloudlet for Google, Yahoo and Twitter

awesome Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

One of those few extensions you install and just say, "wow". Might not always be necessary but when it is it's a simple and useful idea. I concur with some of the other reviewers that it would be nice to have the cloud in the empty space on the right side instead of on top.

Also, the donate/review/share link that shows above the cloud is creative, but users aren't going to want to see that forever.

Resizeable Textarea

used frequently Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Easily one of the extensions I use most frequently. Simple idea that is vastly useful, and frankly should be built into Firefox itself.

Copy Link Name

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Hyper-simple and very useful. Works as advertised.

Brief

wonderful Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

A very simple and well done RSS reader. No bloat; exactly what I need.

Pilgrim's theme

nice and simple Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

This is a very nice simple and clean theme. Looks quite nice with small icons, though doesn't show quite right for me with large. A good theme for those who just want a good looking minimalist toolbar.

China Channel

wonderful idea Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This is simple and wonderful idea. Reports of oppression and censorship in China are heard but not really understood by most people. This extension lets people actually experience it, which is a brilliant idea to promote awareness of government censorship. Unlike most add-ons, this is not something to recommend for people to use in their daily lives but rather something to recommend for people to think about the daily lives of others. The Great Firewall of China is a system designed to keep their citizens from questioning things, and hopefully this extension will get a few more people in the rest of the world to question the Chinese government.

Chromifox Basic

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Probably the first theme on here I'm considering using instead of the default system-borrowed Linux one. Very well done, especially for a first release.

DOM Inspector

now with added extensionyness Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Once came bundled with Firefox itself, now spun-off into its own extension. If you're a developer of anything remotely web-related, get this. It's the #1 tool for all of your debugging needs.
