My Reviews

Strata40

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using Strata40 for almost a year. I think it makes the best look and most usable browser out there. I finally got around to using FF4 B7 and find it ugly and more cumbersome. Any chance we will get an update for FF4 so I can have both the updates for browsing and my preferred UI?

Duplicate This Tab

excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why this isn't built into FF by default I'll never understand. It is in every single major browser. Thanks for fixing this hole. Works great, very light.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

StrataBuddy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried the beta and it is pretty impressive. I won't be using it unless the address bar dropmarker option isn't retained. It is a significant advantage to just using Chrome. Please consider. I'd also love graphics on the page and tools buttons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.6.9c). 

StrataBuddy

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon. It is one of the things preventing me from moving to Chrome.

A request - can you use graphics/icons for the page and tools buttons?

Omnibar

excellent! must have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This should be part of FF.

One thing I would really like to see: There is almost no need to have a statusbar anymore. For https connections - I'd like the option to have a "Lock" icon displayed in omnibar. The color coding of the favicon is good but rarely understood. I mean - blue? What does that mean for most people?

Thanks to the author.

Tabberwocky

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please don't add more bloat! If anything I wish there was an even lighter version that didn't have:

Pretty much every feature on the Tabs page above "Close Window window when closing last tab in it"

Isn't Protect, Lock, Copy Tab Title pretty obscure functionality? Firefox is the only major browser without duplicate tab... thanks for that!

Tab bar options. Show new tab button is good. The others regarding tab width. IMHO the default behavior is fine for almost everyone.

Suggestions:

The progress bar on the tabs is so good! Any way we could get it to display across the whole height of the tab?

Highlight the labels of unread tabs is a great visual cue. Why Red? I don't want bloat but I'd just like italics or a simple color picker. Red doesn't fit with many more simple skins. It sticks out way too much even in the default theme.

Again I'm just asking for Tabberwocky lite. Undoubtedly a bunch of people love the features I don't. I'd just take the "google approach" and focus on things that are missing and fit the needs of most users, not all.

Autofill Forms

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
