Good but could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I have a number of business applications that do not work properly in Firefox. I have searched for a separate windows application that acts as a URL broker (i.e., that registers itself as the default browser and then sends URL requests to one of a number of installed browsers) but to no avail. (But if anyone knows of such a thing please let me know!)
This plug-in is the next best thing, particularly as I tend to leave FF running all the time (so no startup costs).
A couple of improvements could be made though:
1) I use IE 8, and despite the browser's settings to open new pages as tabs within the existing browser, this plug-in always opens a new IE8 window. Fixing this would be a bigger plus than it sounds!
2) There seems to be a little bit of processing going on in FF before the page redirects to IE. Almost as if the hook is taking place AFTER the initial page is loaded but before it is rendered. If this is the case please change it to do the redirect before any loading occurs.

Can break some web sites that use AJAX, so not an option for me (unfortunately).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2).

Extremely handy when I working in multiple offices and from home, some using a proxy others not.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2009.03.28).
Forget Snagit - this is the business for firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I installed this and SnagIt at the same time. This is the FAR better product - it's just a shame it is limited to Firefox!
The ability to edit in the internal editor before saving is excellent too. Ideal for development workshops with the rest of the business!
