My Reviews

Paste and Go Key

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many thanks for this. Paste and go via keyboard shortcut is way more useful than via the context menu version. I'm surprised it's not native to the browser like in Opera and Vivaldi.

Paste and Go 3 Again

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I missed the old version of this. I know there was an old hack that worked for a while but I fully agree with @niceshorts above. Having a keyboard shortcut is so much more usable than the context menu. (Btw, Ctrl+Shift+V works in current Opera. I'm not sure whether it was there from the start of 15.x.)

Send Link in context menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant. A major usability regression reversed. :)

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Instant Preview

Good but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It needs to somehow be able to bypass pages that have script error pop-ups or network login dialogs. Solve those problems and I would give it 5 stars. :)

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Speak Words

Superb Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I discovered this a while back by accident. I forget how. But in my opinion this raises the already impressive Awesome Bar (way better than the competition) to the stars.

RSS Icon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this. :-) I can't see why it was removed in the first place. I've no problem with Mozilla "updating" the default UI but at least allow customisation. The RSS icon makes it easy just to click on it and then in my case I click Add to Google Reader and that's it. Saves having to copy the URL, switch to Reader and then add the subscription.

Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser)

Useful add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is especially useful when reading long technical articles where you want to, e.g., view a graphic and also read the discussion of it below. Ideally all browsers should have splitter bar functionality such as you get in Microsoft Word, for example. But none do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2009050101). 

Tab Mix Plus

Excellent add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on especially for the Ctrl+Tab behaviour that works the same way as Microsoft's Visual Studio. I also love the new tab list popup menu that's similar to Visual Studio and Opera. (MS was the pioneer here I believe. Too bad that their browser didn't follow suit!)
