I'm trying to find the best and easiest to use site load and page complete analysis tool. So, I'm currently testing extended status bar, lori and yslow.
The results between the three add-on are amazingly enough, sometimes all over the place while testing on cnn abcnews and some other heavy mainstream pages with an empty cache.
And unfortunately, when it comes to TTC and Page Load, lori seems optimistic while yslow seems the most accurate in reporting overall page load and time. It is not as bad as extended statusbar, but not really accurate enough to run standalone, and thus not up to expectations.
Also wish there were maybe a few more metrics and some configurable options. I don't really care about hundreds and thousands of a second, and would rather see the space saved for that include speed gauge, image count, ...
Unfortunately on many sites it is very inaccurate. With an empty cache, try loading a site like CNN, see the counts add up, only then to revert to some marginal number upon completion, listing that the entire page is only 70KB and took 2.3 secs. All while yslow says 1.2MB and 53 secs. The latter being correct. Tried with several other sites too. It erroneously reports that the abcnews page is only 155KB while yslow pegs it at 1556 KB. Both said 45secs. Then later extended changes its numbers??
This is on Firefox 20.
So, sometimes this add-on has it right, but in initial testing it is often a miss, at least partially, only reporting part of the true load or time that expired.
I can't believe the balls of this company / developer to track users browsing behavior via an add-on without prior disclosure nor consent.
I just hopped on Amazon and was asked if I wanted to enable competitive offers and coupons. I use Amazon a fair amount, but on different computers, so at first I thought it was some Amazon feature, thought about it, the links to learn more did not work ... nope, not amazon. It is brought to you by awesome screen capture?!
I understand most companies and developers want to make some money, but this is just over the top. I've had it installed for quite a while, used screenshot sporadically while using firefox extensively; and can only hope the privacy damage hasn't been too bad with these folks and that it is just some recent development that slipped in with a recent update, instead of having tracked thousands of users for years, sold user data umpteen times, etc.
Anyhow. This app is an instant delete, no longer recommended and should in my opinion be banned from the firefox add-on list.
I do not recall the following disclosure when I installed the add-on a fair while back, which now reads:
About this Add-on
This extension also integrate some additional features such as "Discover Similar Sites" and "Price Comparison While You Shop." These are value-added features, and definitely are not "Malware" or "Adware" as some may mistakenly believe. Please also note that these features are disabled by default unless you enable them. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS EXTENSION IF YOU STILL DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE.
We are committed to being transparent with and respectful of our users, and would really appreciate if users who are concerned about adware or malware to take the above into consideration.
I hate browser hijacking, browser redirecting, user tracking, ... and of those value added behaviors & toolbars that come with various utilities that end up being a complete waste of time etc
It is my computer, my browser, my internet session. Don't bug me offering stuff, don't track me where I browse and shop. It is that simple.
Until you revert your add-on to the simple screen capture utility it should be, one star, no recommendations to others, no donations.
Hopefully that is transparent enough?
Make sure to get the latest version from the developer site. The mozilla hosted version is 2 point releases behind. (v1.3.3 will not install on TB 3.0.3, v1.3.5 does)
-2 stars: Would be drastically improved if it had a tick box to bypass the confirmation requests "OK to delete attachment(s)" for every single message. Honestly, who wants to click OK >1000 times ... every few seconds you need to click OK in order for it to move on to the next message.
-1/2 star: Settings window after installation was on auto-extraction, making it easy to overlook the general section which has delete message after extraction as a default setting. So when you first use it, all your messages go to the trash. Don't think that should be a default.
In my brief experience with it, it is totally inaccurate.
The page load time stops before the page is completely loaded. The page weight might be calculated based on the physical size of the html file. It in no way represents the actual download weight to view the entire page. Pages with lots of images, 3rd party scripts etc will supposedly load in 2 seconds with 50KB of weight while your browser still indicates it is loading data and your network monitor continues to show traffic for another minute.
For example. Sites like tuaw and engadget consistently weigh close to 1MB. This extension shows them below 100KB.
I would love this extension if it were accurate.
