There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary & those who don't!
This add-on is convenience central. I often come across a snippet of foreign text while surfing the 'net, usually on Facebook. Being the inquisitive type, I simply HAVE to know what it means. After highlighting the foreign text, I just right-click on it and choose Translate selection with Google Translate. In less than a second (for say a paragraph) there it is in English (the wonders of Dynamic HTML). No matter what language, it just works. If I come across an entire page of foreign text, I can right-click on the page and choose Translate this page with Google Translate. This saves me a LOT of time and frustration. I used to have to copy and paste either the text or the URL, then go to Google itself, find the Translate feature, then translate it from there ... what a rigmarole that was! Anyway, the bottom line is that I simply can't do without this add-on now =)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
For me, the Download Manager Tweak is a blessing. I do a LOT of downloads, and I've set it up in Options to first ask me where I would like to save the new file, then DMT takes over in the background and does the rest. I don't get any annoying/distracting dialogs popping up, and when I'm ready to access my newly downloaded file(s) I simply open DMT in a sidebar. From here (during the download) I can pause/resume/cancel/retry; and once a download is complete, I can launch the file, open its folder location, or clear it from the list, delete it altogether, or both. I've never had any problems with this add-on either, which is why I feel confident in writing a positive review =)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5).
