User Agent Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this plug in and will recommend this highly for one simple reason, you can strip out the version and platform you are using from the user agent field, something people need to use if we are going to put a stop to the browser wars and force standard makers to stop making creating web sites so difficult you have to agree to complicated license agreements and tools just to make a web site. I don't mind a few bells and whistles, but my css code should not end up being larger than the actual content itself - what happened to saving our foot prints - lol! Tools like this will put a stop to the browser wars, just say, Mozilla, Netscape, Ver 5.0, that's all a web designer should have to deal with. No platform information is really necessary unless you are trying to make it easier for hackers, which is a rampant problem today.

Too much sharing required Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While is it exciting to see what new css rules can do, I have no interest in going to the developer's web site so they can track every gradient I create. The base64 code makes me nervous too. Sadly I see this a lot in "open source" software, and people see so many license agreements, they might not really think about reading them. Will create my own tools instead. It's a nice "gee wiz" add on, but something I don't really need or want, especially if I am not connected to the internet (the tool does not work unless you go to their website). The developer looks like they put a lot of work in this. This is something you can learn to do on your own with a couple of days of practice, and this tool might help a lot of people doing that. Tools that are "browser add-ons" should not require connection to other web sites, because they cease being an "add on" and really function as marketing tools for clever web site operators. Par for the course with the "open software" movement? Sigh.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7).
