My Reviews

Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on. I agree with other reviewer that it should account for popups. Also, I have not used it that much yet, but does it have a "panic button"? A big old one would be nice to bring everything back to normal if things get out of hand.

EditCSS

Not quite there yet for me Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I would love to give this add-on top marks, but unfortunately whenever I install it my Firefox gets really unstable and prone to freezing. It's obviously a conflict with something else I have but I positive it's there.
It's too bad because I really would like to have an inline css editor that works reliably. One with line numbers and search. Even Firebug falls way short of this goal. But I have to commend the developer for the effort and I will keep checking if maybe one day that conflict disappears.
(FYI, I use several "portable" firefox instances that allow me to test FF in a variety of configurations. The common denominator in teh unstable ones is always EditCSS paired with the usual web development suspects like web dev, firebug, etc.)

JoomlaFox

Needs updating Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It would be nice if this worked with FF 3.6.3. It's a good idea but since I can't test it I'll have to review it some other time.

One thing I would like to see in the extension is a way to handle the CSS and JS files in Joomla. Especially JS conflicts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.3). 

Speed Dial

One of the best add-ons - awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely awesome!
At first I didn't know what to make of it. I don't know why since it is very easy to use. But I stuck with it and then I realized how powerful it really is.
It has basically taken the place of my bookmarks. It's easier to use and more "visual" than fetching bookmarks from all over the place.
Set it as your default home page and you can create several pages of links according to your needs. This is a must have for anyone using FF.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.0.8).
