- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12253094, 8 months agoReally just agreeing with the most recent 1-star reviews. I wish to ask the Dev: do you realize ... and I'm not suggesting that you're not brilliant, honestly. It's just - I hate to see a once-very-popular add-on going this route.
I wish you'd re-think your decisions which resulted in a far more invasive experience and which have garnered some harsh criticism from formerly happy users. I know that you are not "forcing" anyone to do anything, and that's been your basic response of late... and we know that's true. BUT - if a person wishes to use your add-on you ARE enforcing a level of depth and breadth in.. umm... information gathering abilities.. which a growing number of people are quite concerned about.
Clearly you've many projects underway and this is perhaps just a legacy from a more addOn-friendly Firefox - but, if you care about this particular one - I hope you give it more thought.
Cheers - and - I do get it, really.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 15289944, 10 months agoI installed the program before reading the reviews, then found out in the reviews that all my website visited are reported to Fakespot. That gave me a bad feeling, so I removed the program and will use their website link instead when needed.
- Rated 2 out of 5by RCAdddiction, a year agoIt's a positive that Fakespot finally works with Firefox as well as it did in Chrome. I've stopped using Chrome due to privacy issues. I use Chrome only to shop on Amazon to see the Fakespot review and then close it.
However, it's a huge negative that FS pops up and interferes with non-Amazon, non-eBay sites. The plug-in also seems to have far too many permissions, tracking every site to which a user goes. This is a bridge too far. I'm disabling it for the moment, but likely am going to uninstall this overly intrusive tracker. Again, if there's no charge for a product, then you are the product. I'm not going to be FakeSpot's product.
