My Reviews

SoundCloud Downloader

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hijacks traffic to Google Search and Bing, sending the search query to Yahoo! instead.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2). 

Grammarly for Firefox

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

On a plain web document, it works fine. It gives suggestions, even though it does not always recommend a fix too. But when it comes to the places where we really need it, it does not work. For example, try to edit Wikipedia using its VisualEditor with this plug-in! It brings the browser to a halt. It also doesn't understand markup languages like markdown either.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.735.650). 

FoxyProxy Basic

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works fine and is filled with optional features that probably I never use, like emptying cache when the proxy is switched. (Does that mean if I accidentally click on its icon, my cache would be gone?)

But why are some basics are neglected? The name of the default profile cannot be changed. (Why should there be a mandatory profile anyway?) And the icon in the context menu is misplaced.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.5). 


Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Reviewing version 10 on Firefox 39. There is not much to tell: This plug-in tries to find an iterator at the end of the URL and increase or decrease it. It places its small user interface in the address bar and reveals it only when the mouse is over there, thus and causes conflict with reading mode icon there.

With only user interface and functionality to consider, the only feasible scores for this add-on is either 1 or 3 or 5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1-signed). 

Evernote Clearly

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This plug-in works on all web pages and generates relevant contents on most. So, yes, it works. It is easy to use too.

But it does not impress. Internet Explorer 11's Reading Mode works much better, although the latter doesn't work on every web page.

To give specifics, this add-on fails to render all relevant contents. Try it on a Wikipedia article and you see what I mean.

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is nice bit of feature to have, especially it lets users open MHT files in their Firefox instances and benefit from the added security that Firefox add-ons provide.

However, it is not compatible with Outlook 2013. The MHT file that Outlook generates with its "View in Browser" command does not render well in Firefox with this add-on.

Flag of Hungary

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A nice green theme -- what more is there to say?

Flag of Palestine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Another nice red theme -- No comment on the country itself

Flag of Iran

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Political, national and (potentially) patriotic aspects aside, this Persona is nice. It is chiefly a warm red but not hot red.

Wikipedia (SSL)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely useful for Wikipedia editors who use Wikipedia over SSL connections, since the secure Wikipedia site requires a separate sign-in.

I cannot confirm whether this provider has search suggestions. (Search suggestions does not work properly in my Firefox anyway.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20101024). 

Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This plugin is an official and competent replacement for FFClickOnce by James Dobson. It allows publishers of Open Source or free applications to publish their products so that it is downloaded and installed painlessly, in the same manner that a Firefox add-on is installed.

Unfortunately, this add-on received an undeservedly bad reputation because in its first version, it could have not been uninstalled or disabled. Although applications like Internet Download Manager or Orbit Downloader still include such intrusive add-ons, they never received such criticism as this add-on did -- only because this add-on is from Microsoft and bashing Microsoft has become a sport these days.

Microsoft has now resolved the old problem with this plug-in and has published updates for it via Automatic Update or Microsoft Update.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1).
