My Reviews

InvisibleHand

Invisible Hand is saving me a lot more money now. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems like recently InvisibleHand added coupons to the toolbar. It is finding me a lot more savings as a result. I saved over $100 during the holidays. Love the new changes.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.19). 

Cartbound

First thing this wants me to do is install Microsoft Silverlight. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sorry, but I run a Mac and don't want a bunch of Microsoft garbage running on my machine. If the first thing I need to do is install more software, then something is wrong with an add-on in my opinion.

Just to see how it compared to other shopping toolbars I have used, I had my friend who recommended this show me the results for a bunch of products. For a lot of them, they had nothing while other toolbars showed a few results at least.

UI is also really annoying since it takes up a huge amount of space on my machine. Maybe on a desktop monitor it isn't so bad, but on my friends MacBook Air it really left things cramped. You can toggle it to show up or not but that isn't as good as other shopping toolbars out there.

LastPass Password Manager

essential addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Helps you remember all your non-essential passwords. I keep track of my bank passwords in my head but this lets you keep track of the non-essential passwords easily.

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not sure it is worth $10 but it is a great addon. I don't trust their recommendations 100% but at least they give you warning when you need to think 2x about a site.

Which? Shopping Toolbar

Disappointing. Only seems to work on Amazon. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

If you are going to have a shopping toolbar, it needs to work on more than just Amazon. I checked several retailers (Bestbuy, Newegg, Buy.com) and it didn't work on any of them. There are plenty of other shopping toolbars that have way better coverage than this, and if you want price comparison with reviews, then InvisibleHand does a way better job than this.

XPath Checker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't know what to say other than it works. Simple interface that isn't confusing..

SearchStatus

Replaced several addons I used to have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What makes this product great? a) it works b) it takes the place of several addons I used to have on my computer. It is unobtrusive which is key to me also.

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this addon. I don't really like to block most ads, but I still find this extreme useful to block ones that are totally annoying (basically the ones that cover up the top of a page to make you read the ad first before reading an article). Fact that you can customize it to block as much as I want is what makes this a great addon.

Pocket

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Awesome addon. Only way to improve this would be if the developer built an in house Android app. You can buy a third party app but it is not as good as the iPhone version that is actually built by ReadItLater. Android has bigger market share than iOS so what gives??? The ability to read on any device is most important feature of a service like this to me.

Pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon. Read It Later is a great way to increase your productivity by putting articles that you want to read in a queue for reading later. Instead of reading when you should be working, you can read on your cell phone when you are at the gym or where ever. There is also a great app for this program one the iPhone, but strangely the only Android version is by a third party. That is my #1 complaint (that RIL doesn't support Android without a 3rd party solution).

PriceBlink - Automatic Price Comparison & Coupons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon kicks a$$ now. I love how it now includes shipping charges in the price. It was good before, but I just noticed in the recent release that they started including shipping charges. Another great feature is the ability to check out coupons for retailers easily. With this addon, I can now make a buying decision 1,2,3.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If you want a simple way to save articles to your iPhone and read later, this is a great app. With the upgrade (which removed saving articles in bookmarks) I am not sure how to read articles on my computer anymore. I sure I could spend the time and figure it out, but it is not the easy and simple addon it once was. I use my iphone to primarily use this tool so I don't really care that it is more complicated.

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have two computers and love xmarks for the bookmark sync. I don't use the password sync feature since I am concerned about security (no specific reason to be concerned). The bookmark sync works like a charm and doesn't force you to also use the password sync which is perfect for the paranoid like me.

Pencil

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and easy to use program for mocking up a webpage. Just what I was looking for.
