My Reviews

Sage

Excellent extension, but can we get an update? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sage is the only way I can stand to keep up with RSS feeds. Everything else (including Live Bookmarks) is so huge, clunky, bloated, or otherwise inconvenient.

However, can we PLEASE get an updated version of Sage that works on Firefox 3? Maybe another developer could pick it up if the original author(s) have given up on it.

This is a truly one-of-a-kind extension. I would hate to see it go by the wayside. Sage really is the only bearable way to deal with newsfeeds.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.10). 

NoScript Security Suite

Extremely valuable extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think I reviewed NoScript once before, but I saw the comments from people who didn't like it and had to chime in. Basically, if you think NoScript is overkill and intrusive, you probably don't understand what scripts are necessary and which ones aren't. Lots of scripts simply aren't required at all.

Besides which, the bad guys are turning more and more toward hacking innocent websites to embed an iframe that serves up scripts from a totally different server. So just avoiding dodgy websites isn't adequate protection anymore.

If you think NoScript is intrusive, just uncheck the option to show a message about blocked scripts, then use the statusbar icon to allow scripts only when a website isn't working properly. It's fast and easy, and since most people only visit a limited number of sites anyway, you'll quickly build up a usable whitelist.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.7.2).
