My Reviews

Adblock Plus

No longer a 5-star app Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This used to be simply the best. Now it's suffering from feature creep, adding totally unwanted extras. This would be bad enough, but since the recent update I've found that it works on far less sites than it used to. Some of my most used sites are now plastered with ads, again. So, with a lot of regret,I'll be uninstalling this and looking elsewhere.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.2). 

Xmarks Sync

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Stil seems a bit buggy, with some bookmarks vanishing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.2). 

Flash Video Downloader - YouTube HD Download [4K]

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent - unlike the highly-rated "Flash Video Resources Downloader", this one does the job on every site I've tried - and it doesn't pester me to pay cash, unlike the other!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.5). 

Xmarks Sync

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to be a great app.

It's still good at syncing bookmarks, but unfortunately bundles it with a lot of insecure and intrusive garbage.

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

Magic's Video - Downloader

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just doesn't work?
I've tried this on a couple of computers, XP and Linux, and it hasn't worked on any.

Fast Video Download

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was a superb add-on until a recent 'improvement.'
Now, instead of downloading directly as before, it redirects you to a download/advertising website - which then doesn't work.

Video Search and Downloader

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, but basically trashes the first 5 seconds or so of a video download by superimposing a highly intrusive title over the picture

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2). 

Xmarks Sync

Was great, now it's practically spyware. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Came back to delete my original 5-star review for Foxmarks. Sadly, it's now become 'Xmarks', (AKA SpyMarks), a data-mining app.

So, with deep regret, Foxmarks is coming off my PCs, and I'll have to find an alternative. Pity, to see one of the best Firefox add-ons bite the dust...

Wonderful idea, but needs a bit more work.
