My Reviews

ROTOGAMEsq

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, yet fun. Well done!

BugzillaJS - Tweaks for Bugzilla

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BugzillaJS is fantastic. It fixes a myriad of little paper cuts and makes my everyday bugzilla experience infinitely more enjoyable. Two thumbs up!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

DNS Flusher

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great. I have a few hosts that are on the Internet as well as on a VPN, and when changing networks, the DNS cache doesn't resolve the host names right. This add-on makes it so easy to flush the cache entry, it's fantastic.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.5). 

ThreadBubble

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always have to run through my entire inbox to find older threads that have just been revived. Well, not anymore! Thanks, you are my hero. :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

CacheViewer

Works on Mac, but needs work for Minefield Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension is very nice and useful. I often use it to download data (like Flash videos) that I would like to store but can't even bookmark due to odd page structures.

The claim of somebody else that it doesn't work on Mac is wrong: I use it on Mac on Firefox 2.0.0.7 and it works pretty flawlessly.

However, on the Firefox 3 Alphas it doesn't work (the list shows up empty). So maybe you want to investigate that before Fx 3 gets released so that once it does, you can say "look here, my extension works great with the new version!".

Anyway, thanks for making this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3). 

IpernityFox

Good adaptation for Ipernity Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This works quite well: It shows everybody's new photos or the ones from your contacts or friends.

Good is: It works flawlessly, quickly and with one click you are on the photo site.

Not so good: It doesn't look like there's a way to display your own photos; also, I am not sure if it shows other media (audio/video).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.2).
