In a little more detail...

With an industrial experience of around 3 years in web development in Java & architectural experience in providing Searching & Indexing solutions using Apache Solr, I am constantly shaping my skills to match what the future demands. I am an Associate Technology L2 at SapientNitro, Gurgaon, India. I have had an amazing experience in developing the website of UAE’s largest selling newspaper client (gulfnews.com) in Struts & Polopoly CMS.

I am a Big Data enthusiast and have hands-on experience on Hadoop, MapReduce & NoSQLs like MongoDB. I am a cloud fanatic and constantly thrive to expand my skills on Amazon AWS. I am determined to work in a similar profile which puts me in a position to expand beyond what seemed impossible yesterday.

I’ve always been fascinated by gadgets, start-ups and the open source world. I constantly contribute to the open source community at GitHub and also interned for a start-up during graduation days.

My Reviews

InstantFox Quick Search

Awesome addon but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,

This is an awesome addon. It's one of the addons that I install first on a new FF. However, I can't remember if that's the behavior from the start or it has started to happen recently.
When just typing something in the URL bar, say pizza, I get the first result from the history and then the rest are suggestions from instantfox. What I need is to load a URL that contained pizza from the history of FF. So, the correct behavior should be- first result from history, then 5 suggestions from instantfox, then the rest of the URLs from FF history as well.

Thanks,
Gaurav Kumar

Google/Yandex search link fix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome...just the addon I needed.
Just one thing though...after enabling this, the web history in Google cannot show which links I clicked from the search results. Is there any way to fix that?
Thanks.

Elite Proxy Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good addon until you did this.
"Now Firefox will use direct connect at start in case the user forgot to clear the proxy settings."
Please undo this or atleast have a setting to control this behavior.
I am behind a corporate proxy and I don't want this addon to reset the proxy everytime I restart FF.
Many Thanks

Readability

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have tried iReader, Stream, Readable & Evernote Clipper and trust me guys, no one does the job better than Readability. Awesome add-on, reading list, multi-page articles etc makes it the best.

Suggestion:
Please have some options to configure the CSS more. Some of us developers like to play around with the width of the page or some other parameters ourselves, so please have some options to change them.

Thanks,
GK

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome addon...highly recommended...
Google Reader seems to be really in beta after viewer the same feeds in feedly...

Suggestion/Bugs:
* The feedly mini toolbar also appears while viewing images...and it kinds of appears distorted.
* When anything is saved for later, I can't seem to be able to delete that entry from the saved list. Both marked as read and delete are not working. I have to manually go to google reader and remove the star from the entry. Plz fix this.
* In the mini feedly, i have only enabled gmail, twitter and fb, still google's +1 and feedly, save for later are also appearing.

Thanks,
GK

Configuration Mania

Great (a minor error though) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi
Great add-on.
A minor error though.
The actual config entry is "browser.ctrlTab.previews" and not "browser.ctrlTabs.previews".
Thanks
