Technical Review for Author Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Felipe, I have pasted a partial, and initial technical review for you here - http://groups.google.com/group/addons-development-brazil/browse_thread/thread/6cb9dd7fc7cea8ae

Basically somehow the menus failed to display when I tested with Mac OSX with Firefox 3.5.1, and, because of that, the AJAX code generated errors in the JavaScript console. I also have a few recommendations for you to make it shine:

* Put your JavaScript code under an object like org.felipe.yourApp so you keep things safe and reduce the risk of conflicts. In our code I see a number of functions declared as global.
* You can use a ../locale directory and keep various sub-directories in there, one for each language. Using this approach you will use entities in the XUL and will be easy for others to help you out and localize for you. Then make sure you at least put a en-US language support , so you can also get reviews and English users going...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3). 

BuscaPe na Hora

Realtime Shopping Comparison Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Buscape shows a great example of a Firefox extension that is tied with a service and adds real value. It identifies shopping product from a page, and when there is, it shows if there are other products with better prices.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.07).
