My Reviews

LastPass Password Manager

I hate it with a burning passion Rated 1 out of 5 stars

So badly designed, prone to crashes, uglifies forms, overall backwards, I hate this extension with a burning passion. Not only that, but its dominant place in the extension ecosystem discourages others to make a decent one.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.41). 

JSONView

Does its job so well it becomes invisible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I noticed today I had installed this a few years ago when I saw someone else I showed JSON didn't have it. It allows me to see JSON responses naturally, and it's so flawless and seamless I didn't even notice it was there. Good job, Ben!

(As far as I'm concerned, this should be integrated into Firefox Core!)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1-signed). 

Session Manager

Good idea, mediocre execution Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I originally just wanted to save my windows somewhere instead of having them lie on my desktop endlessly.

Over the course of a few months, this extension has turned into a cemetary of dead whole sessions, unmanageable mess of sessions, and no clear path to save/load sessions. The whole interface is way overcomplicated for the purpose.

I'm sure the developer meant well and put in a lot of work towards this, but in the end, I am removing it because the interface made me not wanting to use it anymore, and just slowed down crash recoveries. Sorry, but the UX is a nightmare.

I wish it well into improving this in the future, because frankly, the idea was very promising, and I think a such a feature, well implemented, is a browser essential.
