My Reviews

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Having used this for several weeks, it is an add-on which will stay on my desktop systems as they have enough screen space to allow it to run without making the browser too crowded.

Sadly, it is NOT useful to me on smaller machines - such as my netbook - since the programmer decided it was necessary to hard-code a minimum sidebar tab width of what looks to be about 300 pixels - which is about 1/4 of the screen. This is the sort of choice which is best left to the user.

Also, AiOSB does, as best I can tell, intercept and replace the FF "Tools|Add-ons" menu and puts it in the side bar with the selection "Get Add-ons" replaced by "Browse All Add-ons" which, excuse me, is not to my mind the same thing so I wasted a few minutes trying to find the desired "Get Add-ons" which left me crabby.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.10). 

Google Translate, ImTranslator, Dictionary, TTS

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is T-O-O cool !!

Of exceptional value is the audio.

Truly remarkable. There is nothing to compare it with (Google translate is not in the same league).

It does have popup ads - but these are blocked by using NoScript (which one should be using in the first place)

One of the very few addons for which I would be willing to pay.

Sadly, it does not support RENAMING of files on download - ie "save as"

Thus the file will be saved on your computer with the same name as on the source, with no chance to change it.

If one uses filenames as keys to finding the images when needed (days, months, or years from now) using an image/file search app - it is unlikely that you will recall that the image of the baby gorilla with a ball is "xSECOSGFU_img_015.jpeg" vs "baby_gorilla_w_ball.jpg"

So for me, using this shortcut app takes longer, as I must then open the download directory and change the name to something useful - when by using something like "Folder Guide" (winAp that shortcuts directories) it might take a couple of extra clicks to get into the desired dir on save, but this allows rename upon save.

FavLoc lasted under an hour on my computer, too frustrating to not be able to rename the images.
