My Reviews

Super Start

It just gets better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gave my 1st review soon after installing, wanted a straight forward quick dial page for my usual sites. Passed with flying colours, didn't reset or disable any other personal settings & no conflicts with other add ons. Started playing around with it ( as you do ), impressive rating went higher. Last 1 I had I used to have to select edit so I could organize the tabs layout, then save the settings. With this a simple drag & drop, everything moved to where I want it. Then my favourite, right click on super start page offers refresh. Every saved tab loaded the latest page from that site, within seconds. New headline on the news channel, latest films added to movies, sports channel saying no broadcast until start of play. Just like mail notifications, don't have to check everything, it tells me if there's something new.

Super Start

Super start - does what it says on the tin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent tool, don't know or care about any specialities it has. Just set background to my favoured colour, went to my main news broadcast site - right click - it's saved. Then all the TV channels, streaming football, full length movie channels. All saved on my new home page = Super Start. Not new to FF or quick tabs, took time to choose this 1. Been reading some horror stories of quick dials that change search engines, even toolbars. Installed this no such problem, search engines are still selectable from Google / Bing to Chambers / Wikipedia. If you want to log on & just go directly to your favourite news or sport site, this is the must have.

ScrapBook Plus 2

Great to be back Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just downloaded it because original is not available on current FF. Liked the old version, might fall in love with this one. Some excellent new features, and seems quicker than before.

Aries Cookie Block

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add on, don't even get cookies telling you they use cookies. Straight into the site, no info bar about cookie & privacy use, Usually click ok & clear on exit, no more, its DOA. Still need better privacy add on to kill off LSO cookies. They are nasty, sneaky cookies that don't go in the cookie jar. Banks & credit card companies use them , but less reputable sites do as well. They are put in main drive folders to avoid deletion. You need to know when these are used.

Self-Destructing Cookies

Excellent - This & Adblockplus & Betterprivacy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic privacy & general clean up tool. There's total control of it, just check options & add on toolbar icon. I use it on sites I trust, always knew they used cookies, was surprised by how many. I even use it on my bank & credit card sites, I know my login, security code & personal security question answer. I never liked the idea I set up all these, yet they allowed entry after the first code was entered. Could have white listed them, as a short cut, but short cuts are what others look for as well.

BetterPrivacy

The law caught up Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now every website covered by UK law must tell you, if they use cookies, what those cookies are for & who else they allow access to. Next step LSO, let me know when you take over a part of my computer, where you've hidden it why is is there.

ScrapBook Plus

One of the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent tool, even the most demanding of Geeks recognise it has few if any faults. For those who aren't computer savvy, it's easy to use, just try it out play around with it, find the settings you want.It won't break your computer, let alone your heart. :-)

BetterPrivacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best I ever added, real time notification of who is adding these nasty little LSO. Smart cookie helps keep check of their smart cookies. Everyone needs this, can erase all, or save white list, but I just trash them all on sign off. Can always log in on sites I really need, without tracking by them.

Personas Interactive Theme Engine

Nothing is free, always check the options, downloading or installed Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Once upon a time Firefox had add on contributors who just loved what they did. Sometimes they would ask for a little financial support, but who did when they could get it for free. Now it's real world, download Java or Flash Player, you have to uncheck the optional extras - Google / Chrome / et al. So simples, check options during & after download. Anything you didn't actually ask for E.G. toolbar or search - just disable or remove. Can be done via FF or Ccleaner or Jetclean, stop thinking there is such a thing as free lunch. If you want lots of tools, you've got to know how to use them.

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Had it 24 hours, probably saved me a few. Its a quick link to all you need, tools tab is obsolete with this addon. I have scrapbook plus - main concern when installing this. Alt & K is scrapbook, then move to page sidebar is gone, no closing. Addons list - page info & more, its a godsend. Brilliant work eXXile.
