My Reviews


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Long-time Vim user, so I really like the way that this extension works, and the way that, like in Vim, the order in which character pairs are typed doesn't matter.
Ctrl-K clashes with the Focus to Search shortcut, so I'm pleased to see options to change this.
Disappointed to see that the digraphs don't appear in the location bar or search bar, but input fields work fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but version 4.9 has an unresponsive addon bar button, so I've reverted to 4.8.6. Would have given 5 stars, but 4.9 can't have been tested much, so only 3/5
@VGPowerlord: log in, scroll to bottom of page (Release Notes section) and click "View all versions"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.1-signed). 

IE Tab Plus (FF 5+, 4+, 3.6+)

Workaround for Firefox 4 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

IE Tab Plus can be made to work well in Firefox 4.

Because of a recent change in the way Firefox installs add-ons, users are now seeing a message to install a missing plugin. Until the add-on is updated, you can (if you're brave enough) open the XPI in WinZip (or 7-Zip, or similar), edit the install.rdf and add below the Description:


Save the install.rdf back into the XPI, and install.
If this is all a bit too much, then just be patient.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.94.20100904). 

Open in Browser

Must-have feature Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a must-have add-on for anyone who often browses though various text files (source-code, TeX, etc) or mis-configured webservers.
It really should be built in to Firefox.
Agree it would be nice to see some integration with the Options/Applications page, so that the choice could be made permanent.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). 


Fairly good, but not great yet - needs polish Rated 3 out of 5 stars

v1.3.0.30 on Firefox 3.5.1:
This could be a great extension, but there are some annoying niggles:

1) Folder titles do not persist: click in the title bar, type some text, then Control-T to create another new tab with the desktop HTML, and the folder has no title.

2) Refreshing thumbnails seems unpredictable: create a folder and within that a few thumbnails. Even though the thumbnail's images have been created, they don't seem to update in the folder's thumbnail image.

I'd love to see more features:
tiling, top-level background colors, more control over search engine URLs, and some visual indication of where the user is in the folder hierarchy.

But even without all that, it's an impressive extension.

Petname Tool

Suggestions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Even phishers can install SSL certificates these days, so I like having a visual indication that the site I'm visiting is known to me and not a plausible scam.

2 points though:

1. It only allows editing for SSL sites. It would be nice to name insecure sites too (with a different background - maybe yellow?)

2. To concur with Lane's comment on September 14th, the extension does take up a large chunk of the toolbar.
The Firefox 3 way of presenting things would be to show an icon/button in the address bar instead (like the bookmark/tagging and RSS feed buttons) - this could display the pet-name as a tool-tip.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6).
