My Reviews

Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Still one of the best ad blocking add-ons out there even though I don't like the acceptable ads feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.4).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Functionality and gain of security is superb. One little thing that could be improved though is the blurry icon when scaling is enabled (e.g. on high DPI displays). On my notebook which has scaling enabled it doesn't look that sharp.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.9).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Proxy Selector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like the simplicity of this add-on, anyhow there are visual bugs with the new Aurora (Firefox 29) interface. For instance, it doesn't show the proxy-list when using it via the new menu. To bypass this bug I have to use it via the Extras menu of the Menu bar.

Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good if you don't use the highly criticized Acceptable Ads feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1). 

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Highly configurable and a great additional layer of security.

One problem I had with this add-on was the built-in option for safe cookie management. It can corrupt other sites, so you're unable to log in on that pages. I solved it by defining exclusions.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.8.17). 

Ghostery

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I believe it does a good job in blocking, but it's also very buggy. I had to reload pages many times to see the tracker-list because it was empty.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.2).
