needs better user feedback Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Typing a poorly formed URI into the search gives a cryptic response. The icon set used for the folders appears out of balance when the contained documents are hidden. The plug-in runs well, but I would hope that you would offer some hints for people new to the concept of the semantic web. Tool tips and a semantic web FAQ would be very helpful. Not quite user freindly enough for prime time.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.25).

...and not just because I work at OpenLink Software.
@Major -- You can use it with localhost/non-public URIs today -- you just need a local/non-public RDFizer, Viewer, and/or SPARQL service instance! The default service configuration uses a public instance of OpenLink Virtuoso (there's a free Open Source Edition, among other options) and OpenLink Data Spaces (pure Open Source), but you can use your own local instance of these, or other tools that deliver the same services. Check out the full docs on the extension home page!

Great way to browse the semantic web - picks up more data sources than eg Tabulator can.
Would be more useful to a developer if it could work with localhost / non-public URIs too (post the data back to the sponger for processing, perhaps?)
Occasionally unintuitive when it requires multiple clicks to get at the data; it can show the number of predicates about a 'thing', but still needs to hit the URI to get at that data? Seems counter-intuitive!
Overall, well worth a recommendation. One of the better linked data + semantic web explorers available today.
