My Reviews

Lightning

Still very basic and rather non-innovative Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortonately this is hardly more than what any calendar application on even the most basic mobile phone offers. There is no way to sync the calendar between the TB on different computers (similar to FF Sync) nor is there any useful way how the email and calendar component are unified, e.g. by making it possible to add "deadlines" or "reminders" for email messages or easily link a task to one or more emails or threads.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Extremely disappointing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Given that this addon directly comes from mozilla.org, it is very badly done and very embarrassing for mozilla.org.
It does not even keep up with current FF 4 betas (beta 10 is out but it does not even support beta9).
It does not give feedback about what it did, no feedback about what went wrong, no way to influence things, no way to undo things when your bookmarks are messed up -- and do get messed without the user having a clue why and what went wrong.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon would be great -- if it would work correctly. I just deinstalled it because it duplicated bookmark folders, refuses to syn other bookmarks and just does not do what it should do. Also while it is supposed to work with 4.x it seems to work even less/worse with that version and the GUI integration is even worse than in 3.x.
When one has thousands of bookmarks like I do I would also like to optionally get some feedback about what the addon does: which bookmarks are being deleted, added, changed? Also a log of what happened in the latest syncs would be good to be able to undo errors.

Good idea, terrible implementation.

Bing

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The only search plugin that requires the acceptance of an idiotic EULA. Typical MS crap.
This does not get on my computer.

Daum Blue

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work for Linux.

Mail Redirect

Great and useful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I only miss the possibility to have redirect as a filter action too.

Linkification

Dangerous Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This has totally destroyed my Tiddlywiki file - every URL in it, and this includes URLs within Javascript has been destroyed. Unlike I thought, this extension does not just show the URLs as Links it obviously changes the DOM and this means that the changed stuff gets saved to disk. If it happens without you noticing immediately, the changed stuff gets changed yet again next time, resulting in huge messed up monsters of nested HTTP tags of incorrect syntax.

Adblock Plus

Essential extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Together with NoScript the best and most useful extension in existance.
