I've been using the IRE extensions since their inception a few years ago and am still really liking them quite a bit. While this one creates a somewhat hoggish full-line toolbar beneath the address line and bookmarks, it is a LOT easier to use than the Google Chrome one. Live (by a few minutes) updates are extremely helpful when mindlessly browsing and glancing up every few seconds/tenths of seconds for new material.
Had a few issues a week or two ago logging in, but it seems to be back up and running again!
Edit (2016): For whatever reason, this extension no longer is able to keep you logged in between sessions (browser restarts). "Remember me" checkbox is unclickable (or rather only sets with a double-click), but will not actually do anything.
I really, really LOVE the toolbar. It helps me keep up with Achaea even when I'm not playing and allows me to know when new messages have been sent to me. I hope to see this toolbar continue to receive updates and looked after so that players can keep benefiting.
This add-on has really helped me keep track of the goings-on in Achaea. Being able to keep track of when I have new messages (which seems to be all the time...) makes it so I know when I need to be on the ball. It also really tickles my schadenfreude sensor to watch the updater display all the newbie deaths!
What a great idea!! This add-on is a must have for the IRE addicts for those times when logging in fully simply isn't an option. As someone who is in a position of responsibility in a house, it will certainly help for any absences and if something is important and needing my attention I can get to it quicker! Thank you!
I like this tool bar a lot! It allows me to not have to log in for every little thing I want to check. And the best part is when I get a message from a guild, house, or city member that needs my attention right away then I can log in and take care of it and not have to let them wait for ever! Great thing!!
A great utility for checking messages and news within the game. Not only is it good for when you can't access the game, but I think the interface is a little easier to use and manage than the actual in game one. It's nice to have a GUI for verbose elements of the game, like news and messages.
It's the only one of its kind. Iron Realms is suddenly very committed to making their games accessible even to people who can't login everyday. That is something this toolbar promises and delivers. Checking messages is wildly useful and it's just as good as logging in.
I was a little bit sceptic to your toolbar at first, as toolbars (in my experience) often end up being marketing disguised as "useful tools". This is definitely different!
I am impressed by how Iron Realms have managed to give this toolbar a clean look, with all the information needed to stay updated in their MUDs. You get access to messages, news, logs, who's playing your game (QW) and more.
It's great to be able to bring my MUD of choice, Achaea, with me wherever I go. I can now keep myself updated about the happenings in the game wherever I have a browser (pretty much).
Fantastic for those who must have their Achaea fix when you can't log in. Great for work, you can check your messages, who is online, what is going on, read news, and even read org logs! Great work, IRE!
