Can't fix stupid! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I've said it here before, and I'll say it here again; bloat is bad!
CoolPreviews is an add-on that is supposed to add a preview functionality to the browser. The search engine bloat was bad enough, but now Liveshare? No thanks, uninstalled, have a nice day.
K.I.S.S. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Good extensions offer solutions, not bloat. With that being said, Cool Previews offers much of the former, but unfortunately too much of the latter.
Cool Previews offers the user an intuitive means of facilitating searches and general web browsing alike. Tab bar space and unnecessary mouse clicks are saved by means of a preview window, which may in turn be pinned or stacked.
Preferences should be adequate for the normal user, especially if utilizing the add-on tool bar (which is the only tool bar that allows the Cool Previews shortcut icon). However, more advanced users will find it frustrating that such an intuitive extension cannot be fully customized.
If my review would have stopped at the last paragraph, Cool Previews would be a four star extension in my humble opinion. However, the developers must hold the conviction that their product's users need a customized search engine not only in the preview window (which can be removed), but in the browser's context menu as well (cannot be removed). Search tools are very useful, but there are specific extensions that serve such a purpose.
