My Reviews

Zoomr

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is such a fantastic accessibility feature that it almost makes me sad that it's not part of the browser itself.

Please keep up the great work and keep developing this extension.

Image Resizer/Scaler

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Utterly brilliant. Finally a worthy alternative to the old and buggy "Image Zoom" extension.

This one works ultrafast, ultrasmooth and seemingly conflict free.

Thank you so much!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Image Zoom

Severe memory leak, won't ever be fixed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The original author has apparently abandoned this otherwise excellent add-on. Sadly its rather severe technical flaws will most never be fixed. :-(
I wish there was a similar alternative.

Stealthy

Misleading name, far from stealthy. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"Stealthy" is everything but. In my tests it used transparent proxies that readily reported ones real IP to anyone who was asking. This is NOT a "stealth browsing" add-on, one is at no point anonymous to the sites visited.

This add-on does succeed in circumventing some of the less aggressive region restrictions, but far from all of them.

It's a simple to use add-on that requires some trust and it has its merits. However, I don't feel like the tool is fully and properly what it does and doesn't do and how it does it.
