My Reviews

Java API

Great on Java 7 - what if I want Java 6 or Java 8? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very useful tool. However I'm constantly needing to hack the URL to change for Java 8 and sometimes for Java 6. Is there a way to specify a Java level as an option?

Javadoc Lookup Extension

RTFM Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A very useful tool, and saves a lot of time by jumping directly to the Java class I want. It would be great if there were options to pick java 8 or Java 6. Just a a small thing. Great time saver!

Pocket

GREAT plugin -- Broken by Aurora 35.0a 2014-10-19 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pocket is a brilliant tool for remembering and finding stuff, reading later, etc. The Firefox dev people though do not always get to check critical apps. It may be unavoidable but it is also a great shame.

Maven Repository

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Invaluable of Java & allied development. Just find the module you seek!

Tab Mix Plus

Great - but Aurora 31.0a2 Breaks It! Bad 'Aurora' Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tab mix plus might be my favourite add-in after session manager. It is definitely the one I use(-ed) most until Aurora 31.0a2.

Thanks TabMixPlus. Shame Aurora 31.0a2

YouTube

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as I want.
-- Perhaps a keyword filter would be nice 'next time' ;-)

TiddlyFox extension for Firefox

[essential] Works as advertised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't fault it so far. And the later version is faster (or is Aurora getting faster?). Note: I revised my comments following Jeremy's updates.

Ensure you are up to date. It stopped working with the Arora 23.0 version, I had to upgrade to TiddlyFox 1.0alpha3.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0alpha3).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

TiddlyFox extension for Firefox

It just Works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on restores the TiddlerWiki ability to be my extended memory. As with the most valuable things, "it just works" is the most exemplary compliment a design can receive!

There is 'more'. It doesn't open a Pandora's box in browser security, it checks with 'me' (user) if I wish for a tiddlewiki to be "saved". Future suggestions may be to turn that save 'ability' off and on and/or to web sites.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0alpha3). 

About Pages

A Simple Boon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A very handy tool for Firefox. Dead easy to use and just the thing for the curious user wanting to know more about one of the key softwares on his machine. Frankly this facility should be a basic in all non-trivial software packages. Well done

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1).
