Wieso installiert der AdBeaver gleich mit? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ich finde es ungehörig, wenn ein Addon mich dazu bringen will, ein anderes zu installieren. Dass es auch noch meine Daten mitzutracken scheint, habe ich es gleich wieder runtergeschmissen.

Security Risk - Active Snoop Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon sends every site you visit to a german tracking company. All this information is insecure and identifies you.

This is a dangerous addon and should be pulled from Mozilla because it is a known security risk, and breaker.

Semble fonctionner sur Firefox 38.
Mais, n'aime pas que cela rajoute en douce des programmes non demandés...

Использовал этот плагин многие годы еще с первых версий FireFox. Но к сожалению он перестал нормально работать на таскбаре. Спасибо за все, но до свидания.

In firefox 36 I put addition to the taskbar. After restarting the browser, addition disappears from the taskbar. Just do not open the menu by pressing the addition.

Warnung! Installiert Adware! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Finger weg von diesem einst so simplen und doch so gutem Addon, ab jetzt wird ungefragt Adware mitinstalliert unglaublich das sowas hier gelistet wird.

Nie wieder!
Das ist ein ganz grober Vertrauensbruch!

Asked to install adware, no problem declining Rated 5 out of 5 stars

ShowIP seems to work as well as ever.

After install and Firefox' restart, ShowIP politely asked to install the AdBeaver adware. I declined, I see no sign of adware, and ShowIP works fine.

I have no objection to the developers seeking payment for their hard work, as long as they do it openly and honestly. If you don't want to use the adware, consider donating.

To the devs: If you could monetize it without impacting my privacy, I'd do it. Perhaps at least include a link to donations in the window asking about AdBeaver.

Installs unwanted adware (adbeaver).

Avoid, installs extra addons(adbeaver???), and will annoy you until you agree to do so, uninstalled the whole mess of addons.

Installs malware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension installs malware (adware?) called Adbeaver which if isn't theft, isn't far north of theft. Also five star reviews seem fishy in their wording.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

It installs additional addon which I dislike

I like the way it shows the information.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It works and show some data but also installs some adware

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's easy to use and helpful. It also wants to install some other things but you can approve or deny. I think everyone can remove any additional software installed without permission after all.

Getting the ip of a domain is easy with cmd prompt but here with this extension you have it written in the toolbar - it's more conveninet.

Very useful! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Spyware, Malware, Adware , what everyone keeps saying.. don't click ok in the update and you can still use ShowIP as you did before. I am still recommending this add-on without reservation. The main value of ShowIP is in the tools associated with a single click. Imho everyone working on the Internet should have it in his toolbox.

It still works perfect - no matter what! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I still think ShowIP is a very helpful plugin. I have been using ShowIP for some time now to identify the webhosts of domains. You can use ShowIP perfectly to identify link networks and other shady stuff that is done for link building. Regarding the spyware I am not so worried. If you don’t like the stuff that comes with the update you don’t have to click “ok” or you just remove it in the add-on settings right after you accidentally did.

Avoid at all costs Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This installs the AdBeaver Addon without even asking!!
I repeat:
Installs a third party Addon just for some quick cash!
Possibly compromising browser security.

Beware of anyone who uses the word “fair” or “fairness”! Visitors to this page are alerted that something called “AdBeaver” will be installed. Those who were using the add-on before get a pseudo-warning, designed to be given a thoughtless okay as the user runs through the many things that one does when getting a system started. Research AdBeaver, and you'll remove ShowIP altogether!
