Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Excellent add-in but the preferences are buggy. The preferences are not stored in cookie as I originally thought, but everything about them annoys me. The Surf Canyon icon displays in my status bar despite the disabled preference. The Surf Canyon mail icon (who could possibly want this?) likewise displays in my address bar despite its disabled preference. And since I have to constantly reset the preferences, why can't the add-in menu actually *open* the preferences page the same way it can open the Surf Canyon home page, which I have no use for? Raising an alert that tells me the address for preferences is better than nothing, but why can't it just open the page? Anyway, the basic functionality is great - so 4 stars for an excellent but buggy add-in.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.0).

Excellent extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The developer responded to my concern, which was mistaken. The Surf Canyon preferences are not stored in cookies. My preferences are staying in place now - not sure what I did wrong before. So I am happy with this extension and recommend it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.2).
Glad we were able to help!
Thank you, Gary, and please let us know if there's anything else that we may do to be of assistance.
Preferences stored in browser
Thank you for the compliment. The Preferences are actually stored in the browser. If you go to about:config and filter on "surfcanyon" you'll see them. The cookie is primarily used for load balancing. If you'd like to have Firefox block the cookie the application should still work fine. Please let us know if you have any questions or if there's anything else we can do to help.
