My Reviews

OneTab

It's good. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think it is necessary for this addon to also have a proper toolbar button as an alternative to context menu entry, tab sorting features, and automatic _local_ backup of the tab list (let Dropbox handle the cloud, IMO). If you implement those, this addon will be the absolute ideal for a tab junkie who always forgets to clean up after a tab-storming session like me! Simple, convenient, allows you to recall anything on short notice, when it works, you won't need anything else (TMT, I'm looking at you).

P.S. I wonder if it would be possible to integrate OneTab and SessionManager, they serve somewhat similar purposes (saving tab sessions) and could work wonders together.

Fasterfox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon is fine, but the developer really gives an immature impression and outright lies (Fasterfox can't be faster than its forks because the settings are the same). AFAIK previous versions of Fasterfox didn't have that "don't copy" bull in its description so it defaulted to CC-BY-SA license which permits forks, and so the author can't really sue anyone who used his code retroactively. Also, "legal action" doesn't go together with atrocious grammar ;D

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.811.1-signed). 

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

LastPass is the single most awesome service there is. You can secure all your passwords with it and forget them entirely. You can use it from anywhere, anytime, on any browser or OS, even without the add-on itself. You can use it to store passwords, e-mails, credit card data, your computer's passwords (in case you forget them, so you could login into your LastPass account from elsewhere and retrieve them), and any other piece of text you need (via Secure Notes). It's secure, reliable, easy to use and automated.
Personally, I use LastPass to store all of my Internet passwords (including other services' like Xmarks and ReadItLater), my BIOS passwords, several of my 32-symbol TrueCrypt passwords (all generated by LastPass), and my Windows and Linux login passwords, across Firefox and Chrome. I just can't imagine browsing without it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.90.6).
