My Reviews

S3.Google Translator

Still too aggressive Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Excellent service in principle but dominates to the exclusion of other necessary services like Dictionary Tooltip and HighlightAll. Repeated attempts to tame this add-on have all failed. Since it cannot respect other services sharing the same access operations (click, double-click, key combination, etc.) then it must be relegated to a disabled status until absolutely necessary. Disappointing unfortunately.

Oxford Dictionaries

Was perfect now useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Last week this was the best English dictionary search tool on the web. Now it is useless. Something to do with URL? Needs fixing.

Translate This!

Oh dear, what a pity Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Thought I had found something neat and simple, but not so. Everything gets sent to a Google Translate page which prevents my operating on the source page. In practical terms, unfortunately, it is useless.

Prostetnic highlighter

This is brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you. This has a perfect selection of options visible on the main taskbar, is pleasing to the eye, simple to operate and, what I specially appreciate, survives bookmarking.
Like @Corveau, I am also using Firefox 47 and Windows 10 but I don't seem to have the problems he describes.


Dies in Bookmark Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very nice highlighter which does not survive bookmarking. What a pity.
