My Reviews

IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The only problem I've had with IE Tab 2 is that it doesn't work properly with the Firefox 4.0 betas -- it breaks the address bar. However, on 3.6 and 3.7 it works wonderfully!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.10.1). 

Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Parasyte: Go read that bug again, as well as Shaver's blog, etc. Don't "tl;dr" things and stop spreading libel.

Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The rating is to counter the trolls; I'd really only give it maybe three stars to be honest, but trolls and zealots piss me off more than this extension does.

1. The reason this extension even exists is so that people can't complain that Microsoft's trying to be anti-competitive and make ClickOnce work only with their own browser. All you complainers do is put MS between a rock and a hard place; they don't provide this extension and you'll complain that they're being anti-competitive. They provide it and you complain that they're trying to sabotage you. Grow up.

2. This extension does not make Firefox crash, it doesn't eat up all your memory or cause problems if you're not using ClickOnce. Yeah, it was a bum move by Microsoft to just toss it in the machine-global extensions area without asking first. But, it's up to Mozilla to make sure that extensions there can at least be disabled by non-admin users, and they didn't think of that. (Although, 3.7 and newer versions will let you know about globally installed add-ons and let you disable them at start-time.)

Before you go blaming someone else as a scapegoat, perhaps you should look at what you've done that's made them act the way they do.

WebChunks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension continues to work without any new problems on Firefox 3.5, so for those of you who want to use it without running an older version of Firefox, just grab MR Tools and use it to force compatibility.

Live Writerfox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty good extension, although it would be nice to have a toolbar button for blogging pages, rather than using the page context menu.

BTW, 0.3 works under Firefox 3, although you need to tell it with MR Tech or by modding the manifest. 0.4 (which is out now on the author's site) supports Fx3 without needing the workaround.

Showcase

Tab mode should be more like IE Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't like having the right-hand tab list button overridden by Showcase. I'd much rather have a button for Showcase on the left-hand side of the tab bar, and the ability for the tab view to not actually have a proper tab show up; pretty much how it is with IE7 and IE8.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.8).
