As someone who loves knowing what's going down with Mother Earth's seismic activity, this extension was a Goddess-sent little doodad!
But...I just upgraded to the new version of FF, so it's not compatible...boo!
Of all the extensions I've ever considered donating to financially, this is one of the first--and the most helpful if you're into knowing where an earthquake hits before the media do! ;)
This has to be the most rockin' theme-and-toolbar combo ever!
The default theme is a classic close-up image of a rainforest frog with its Amazonian habitat decorating the rest of the browser. Nothing wrong with this, except if you want to view icons down on the bottom of your browser window, the black part of the default theme picture covers over those bottom-dwelling icons or notifications (such as eQuake). Since I still wanted the toolbar and eco-news feed up there, I thought I'd try and download a color-complementary theme like "Walnut." Voila! It got rid of the icon-hiding default theme and replaced it with a more viewer-friendly appearance while still keeping the eco-tool-bar front and center.
Plus I also like it that Brand Thunder gives the user the choice of which search engine to use instead of forcing the users to use Bing. Don't get me wrong--I like Bing. I've discovered many obscure pics and photos of my fave musicians using that search engine. But what I like even more is being offered the CHOICE to use Bing--or not.
So, kudos all-round to Brand Thunder for helping us greenies keep tabs on our beloved Mother Earth while giving us the choice to search as we will with whatever search engine we prefer.
First rate, I say!
My big bugaboo with Personas is that they do seem to replace--and not integrate with--regular FF themes when you apply them to the FF browser.
Secondly, I find the high pixel resolution of Personas to be a bit much. I've tried using even some of the simpler designs and they overpower my 7-yr-old 32-bit CPU and graphics card. I am sure I am NOT the only one in this situation what with the crappy economy. Anyone with either a crappy foodservice job (like mine)--or worse--no job at ALL, is not going to have the burnable funds to upgrade any old computer they might have in their possession just so they can run your high-res graphics.
My money has deeper holes to fill than upgrading a still-perfectly-good computer just so I can sift through mindboggling numbers of graphics that make my browser--let alone my computer--misbehave.
Sorry, but you're just gonna have to make "Personas" a helluva lot more general-user-friendly in order to regain my attention.
You get two stars:
1 for the attempt and the other for having nice designs (despite how high-res many of them are).
Bravo! As someone who observes the Equinoxes, Solstices and Moon Phases as part of my spiritual path, I've been looking EVERYwhere on the web for an open-source, Linux-compatible, browser-based moon-phase tracker, and I found it right here--with solar info to boot! I give the developer four stars just for coming up with the idea and the last (fifth) star for making it available for us Linux-based FireFox users! Bravo, again! :-DThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.200902).
I like the look of this one. I am patiently waiting for it to be available for Linux...because I LOVED playing Super Mario Bros when I was a kid, and I STILL love it, kid-at-heart that I am.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
Fabulous extension, but I share 'HitMeWithIt''s sentiments: PLEASE update for FF 3! It would be such a help! Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1).
My dad said we had to stop using either Weatherbug or our local weather alert from our favorite news channel because he got told that both would be gateways for viruses (something that I know for a fact is patently false!).
So when I found Weatherbug for FF, I was overjoyed, because then I could continue to use Weatherbug without having to put up with my dad's gullibility and misinformed paranoia about downloading stuff onto the hard drive.
Thank you Mozilla!
This has got to be the coolest weather-related extension I've seen! I downloaded it for FireFox because Pop got told by an alleged "computer expert" that both Weatherbug and our local weather channel alert (KCCI channel 8 in Des Moines) was allegedly linked to spyware, viruses and whatnot (which I know for a FACT is completely untrue! Pop got lied to by someone who doesn't know her beans from apple butter)...
So now that Weatherbug is available for FireFox and is not installed onto the hard drive to the point where it would show up on our system tray (but remains solely a part of FireFox), I can get my weather from that adorable Ladybug and not have to hear my dad throw ten million paranoid catfits about something being downloaded.
Thanks Mozilla and WeatherBug's Creator, Justin Dearing! :-D
I know I posted a review before, back in May, but I've got to scream it from the rooftops on how wonderful it is that Chris Finke upgraded his wonderful creation for FF 3! :-D :-D :-D I can't wait to see what new stuff he's added for the new upgrade! :-DThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
My bf introduced me to Interclue, and now I can't live without it!
My favorite reasons to use Interclue?
1) I am nitpicky about not having a lot of tabs open. If there are too many tabs open, my browser gets cluttered, slows way down, and on top of that, I have trouble searching for what I need within the tabs I've opened. Interclue allows me to peek behind the links I see and helps me decide if I want to completely open up a new tab.
2) It allows me to see site content without also having to look at a ton of ads, and the blue and yellow info stats bar on the right side of the pop-up allows me to see how much extra content there is on the site--again, allowing me to decide if I want to open up another tab.
3) It works great for when I'm using Google and there's tons of links to sift through. Once more, Interclue saves me loads of time by allowing me to peek behind the link and help me decide if the link is worth opening up.
There are many more reasons why I love Interclue, but those are the top three.
This makes me wish I'd known about this one after I signed up for Facebook and then not too long after switched to FF 3.
Just the very concept of Hugs instead of Pokes is enough to make me give this 5 stars--even though you've not upgraded to FF 3 compatibility.
Upgrade the compatibility to FF 3 and I will rejoice! :-D
I downloaded this extension thinking that it was for the static bookmark list we're all accustomed to, and wondered why it wasn't working the way I thought it should and that I couldn't figure out how it worked.
Then I read a review by another user and discovered it was for bookmarking blogs.
Needless to say I was not too happy, and so I have this to say:
The developers of this extension need to specify clearly in their description of their product that the bookmarks they're referring to are LIVE--that is, bookmarked blogs--and NOT the regular, static bookmarks you place in the Bookmarks toolbar in the top part of the browser.
Clarifying the usage of the extension would help newbies out immensely.
The extension itself might be great, but...because of the utter lack of verbal clarity in the description and utter lack of extra pictures for further understanding, I give the CREATOR of the extension two stars.
Not everyone is going to know what this is for just by looking at the pictures, the amount of which need amping up. But also, some of us prefer to use words, for they give greater meaning to the visuals. :-P
Scrapbook totally rocks, especially now that it's available for FF #3! You can use it as a research tool, like one other reviewer does, or you can use it to merely collect cool pages you might not get to right away, or, you can use it to collect photos from online photo sites like Flickr--just like a real time scrapbook (just without all the bells and bobbles that are popular with the scrapbooking hobby. ;-)) No matter how you use it, Scrapbook is a boon to ANYone who surfs the 'Net.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206).
I'd give this five stars but it's not yet compatible with FF 3. Otherwise it's a fabulous concept that works beautifully with SpeedDial...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.32).
If I am translating it correctly, the one who wrote his/her comment 'en Francais' was giving kudos, not a complaint!
It reads (rough translation by me) : "This theme is very good for bad eyesight. This is a very good idea."
And, I might add that just because icons are big, that doesn't mean people with normal eyesight can't use them. I like the "retro" feel of this particular theme, and my vision is far better than my parents'!
But since they are incurably attached to IE, they won't be able to take advantage of these cool FF themes...ah, well...;-)
I love the look of this, but I sooo want it to be compatible with FF3, to which I just upgraded. I love Star Trek AND Firefox, so I felt disappointed at not being able to download it yet, so, for now, I'm going to have to give it 3 stars.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.1).
I can't get enough of SpeedDial. Teamed with the Morning Coffee extension, it makes getting my internet-based work done that much faster.
As someone who finds alphabetization a timesaver in searching for stuff (libraries are my favorite haunts!), I think it would be over-the-top cool if the end-user could tick a box that says "automatically arrange links in alphabetical order once inside a group page."
Scrapbook rocks! I love how one can instantly capture a page or even a snippet of a page, and then bookmark using Scrapbook. Unlike another user, I have had no troubles with losing my bookmarks. And even if I did lose the bookmarks due to some weird glitch, I can always do a Stumble and maybe find the same links, or better!
I found out about Oblinq by looking for extensions here...I created a store, and have successfully added items to that store using Oblinq. Not only have I found a way to make cool commissions, it allows me to have my own "online store" without having to fork over expensive eBay or merchant fees! :-D Thank you, Oblinq!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
This is a total timesaver! I have the SpeedDial extension, but MorningCoffee makes checking my emails and looking at other sites a complete breeze because I can assign sites to specific days, cutting down on my guilt about not visiting certain sites every day.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3).
