*** Please make sure you read the add-on's privacy policy (link is just below the "Add to Firefox" button) before installing this! I am not interested in having an add-on that shows ads! ***

While this is a neat idea, the execution is not yet flawless. This will often be the case with programs that work on a 3rd party website, as the owners change these from time to time, causing incompatibilities with the program, so it is to be expected. The ads are a deal breaker for me, though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.03312009). 

Ads

We hear you on ads. But if you run adblock plus, it should block all ads or amazon links. Personally, I use it all the time, and we even recommend it on the skipscreen homepage!

We hope people will understand that, since we're in this for the long haul, in an arms race with a bunch of sites that can break us by changing a line of code, we need some way to make the whole effort sustainable.

There were lots of greasemonkey scripts that did similar stuff, but with the passage of time many of them fell into disrepair, or only tackled a small part of the problem (like skipping a wait, but still requiring lots of clicks). It's a tough job.

We haven't decided exactly how we'll do this, but we wanted to be extremely sensitive to privacy concerns, which is why we included that language in the privacy policy even though none of that is there yet.
