My Reviews

ClearURLs

I don't get why you implemented blocking Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please keep the addon focused on what its name suggests: clearing URL.

If I want to block doubleclick, I can use another addon. Keep it simple and focused!

Translate Now

Support for DeepL translator Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the only addon which supports DeepL (state-of-the art convolutional neural network for translation).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.0). 

Décodex

Aucune confiance en Samuel Laurent Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Les Décodeurs font généralement du bon travail, mais leur chef est une sorte de troll sur Twitter et tient des propos qui n'inspirent aucune confiance lorsqu'il converse avec des sociologues proches du mouvement "black bloc".

Privacy Badger

Disappointing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon is very disappointing. I cannot give the reason why in this space because my reviews have already been deleted twice by the moderators. Just benchmark the addon for your Internet uses with uBO-Scope and see what is not blocked despite training Privacy Badger for weeks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2017.7.24). 

uBlock Origin

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After using uBO-Scope, I am back from Privacy Badger (which does not block Google Analytics) to uBlock Origin.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.4). 

uBO-Scope

A personalized privacy benchmark Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on builds over time a local database of 1st party/3rd party occurrences. It is a very interesting attempt at personalizing the benchmarking of ad-blocking/privacy-enhancing add-ons.

The concept seems similar to Privacy Badger, in the sense that the add-on experience is personalized to the user. The core difference is that the add-on does not block anything, it just aggregates stats based on your browsing history.

Right now, I am using uBlock Origin to block ads ("very easy mode") and Privacy Badger to enhance my privacy. I was really surprised that, despite using Privacy Badger for weeks, uBO-Scope would tell me that google-analytics was still not blocked! I am going to switch back from Privacy Badger to uBlock Origin with EasyPrivacy subscription now...

Regarding Privacy Badger: Google Analytics is considered first-party and not blocked by Privacy Badger. When I posted a negative review about it on the addon page, this review was deleted for a spurious reason. When I posted a new review, it was again deleted without even notifying me by email, like it did for the first review deletion. So I am stating it here, as I learnt about it thanks to uBO-Scope: The heuristic of Privacy Badger is unable to block Google Analytics. This is documented in several closed Github issues:

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.8). 

Behind The Overlay Revival

Remove icon in url bar? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Could you make it so that we could remove the icon in the url bar? It is annoying because it is a cross, just next to the cross to stop the loading of pages. So it is easy to misclick. I only use the shortcut anyway, I don't want this icon.

Steam Database

This or Enhanced Steam Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like this addon, and I'm torn because I also like Enhanced Steam ( http://www.enhancedsteam.com ).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.3). 

Google search link fix

Effective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good job, Vlad!

If you have the opportunity, use StartPage or Qwant instead of Google.

Skip Redirect

It works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very convenient.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.7).

Cookie AutoDelete

Imagine Self-Destructive Cookies but multi-process ready Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is this addon. A good replacement for SDC and Cookies Exterminator.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0). 

BetterPrivacy-signed

Useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Flash cookies were a nightmare to manage.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.76).
