- by bennybaconburger, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5This extension is fine. It does a bunch of stuff. I love Windscribe and think it's a great option for a light-use VPN.
That being said, it is just better to get the desktop version of the app instead. The only way I would justify choosing the extension over the desktop app would be if you were using a portable version of Firefox. Otherwise, get their desktop application.
Secondly, I was having an issue where Firefox was starting up and then not loading my home page (www.google.com). At first I blamed it on uBlock, but then I did some debugging and found that this extension blocks the first page from loading when Firefox starts. My guess is it has something to do with either the extension refusing to initially load the page, or if Firefox doesn't want to load a page on startup until all extensions are loaded. Either way, I'd rather remove the extension than use a different browser. :(
Edit: After reading further reviews, it has been made clear by Windscribe that they have only put priority on the Chrome extension and have not been updating this problem despite its being reported on their subreddit.
Edit 7/7/19: While I'm not acquainted with the add-ons rollout system, I feel that three months does not qualify as soon. I really do want the extension to be updated; it hasn't yet!
Edit 8/26/19: Now that I'm reading the developer response again, going into excess of 4 months does not qualify as 'very soon' in my opinion.

Developer responseposted 3 years agoYou're comparing apples and oranges, and even then, you're still wrong.
1. It's not closed source: https://github.com/Windscribe/browser-extensions-legacy
2. Does uBlock have access to proxies in 60 countries? No.
3. Does uBlock spoof proxy time or keep track of 3rd and first party cookies? No.
- by Mike Vaghur, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Too slow for a VPN - often even unable to open web page, moreover to watch streeming videos. Very small limit of data. Browsec is more faster and have no traffic limit.
- by Neophile, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5You could have an accessible description on your site on how to work with this add-on instead of disperse information mixed with pub and a cartoon for children.
If one does not pay, will have restrictions which put this add-on at the bottom of most others, and with such a reduces bandwidth, this useless add-on can be taken as an abusive pub. I see too many anonymous reviews, almost all of them with five stars. Have they noticed what I mentioned? I also see these so many anonymous reviews as a very big bite on your credibility. A proved hoax.
