Sidebar Bookmarks Search Plus

Clear improvement Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a good start. There are few annoyances though:

1. it does not search for folder names
2. it does not show where in the hierarchy a name found is (instead it has two windows, so I have first to carefully find the folder by using the right button, then use the arrows, to find the folder)
3. when I remove the search word, the folder is gone, so I still have to try to find the folder manually.

If it could just leave things are they are after the last search, i.e. hiearchy for the bookmark visible with the bookmark found still marked it would be perfect.

An optional option, would be to e.g extend the search syntax, like
f:foldername
l+n:location_or_name
t+k:tags_or_keywords
a-l:all_but_location
where
a:all (default)
n:name
l:location
t:tags
k:keyword
d:description

Firemacs

Firemacs best browsing improvement since Mosaic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would say that five stars is not enough.
Firemacs is the single most important feature that has increased
my browsing experience significantly since Mosaic.

If it wouldn't be for Firemacs I wouldn't be using Firefox 3 now. When I installed Firefox 3 and found that my gtk key settings were ignored my only choice would be to abandond Firefox3. But thanks to Firemacs I can continue to use Firefox and now Firefox start becoming real frindly.

On the other hand, setting basic keys, like editing keys and such should be done centrally per user, not per application.

In all GUIs you should be able to set key preferences like emacs, vi or the brain dead windows keys. In GTK this is possible since long time and also in KDE, but there are applications that ignores them (which firefox3 did...).

This type of add on like Firemacs should be available in for all types of applications, to fine tune user preferences, but the fundamental problem should be dealt with centrally.
