My Reviews

Facebook Toolbar

Good but the status update needs changing a bit. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Right. I'm going to post my comments in the review section here because I can see no way to do so in their 'support section'.

FIRST: Get your customer support sorted out! When I click "Support section" I expect to go somewhere where I can register a bug or complaint. Instead I go to a different part of this same page. Clicking on the link to their website takes me to a section for developers on toolbar with nowhere _I_ can find that I can post my problems.

SECOND: My original problem/complaint. Having a box which you can type your status in that has no 'confirm' button and instead periodically updates is really annoying I end up with 2 or 3 posts sometimes.

So on my wall you would see

"Timothy Lee Rayner is typing a long sentence with seve"

"Timothy Lee Rayner is typing a long sentence with several spelinh misteaks and yyposd"

"Timothy Lee Rayner is typing a long sentence with several spelling mistakes and typosd"

"Timothy Lee Rayner is typing a long sentence with several spelling mistakes and typos"

I need to be able to type a status as long as I like and then click 'send', 'confirm' or 'post' or something similar. Making it stand out more on the toolbar (light blue background?) or changing its position on the bar would also prevent my friends from typing Google searches into my Facebook toolbar by accident.

SyncPlaces

Don't see the need to install (at the moment) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I can't quite see the need to install this over X-marks. I looked it up because the mention of 'multiple browsers' filled me with the hope that this would cover some or at least one of the main browsers that Xmarks had missed (Chrome, Opera, Safari for Windows..) but 'multiple browsers' just means multiple copies of Firefox. There is an option to use your own server for X-marks and a lot more options if you use theirs - which is secure AFAIK. So I'm a little at a loss as to why I should choose this at the moment. If you work on building this for some of the browsers that x-marks doesn't support and make sure there are no clashes if it's installed at the same time as X-Marks then you should find yourself a useful niche in the market. I know you are in competition but you only have to look at the likes of Openoffice to realise that being compatible with your competition is actually an advantage. I'll be keeping an eye on this product to see what else transpires.

Pluribo: Instant Summaries

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I gave this 3 stars because I think this plugin has potential. If that potential is never realised then bump it down to 2 or 1 stars.
There are only two problems I have with this but they're big ones.
1. It doesn't work on most pages.
2. It runs all the time on Amazon and significantly slows down page-load.

What this could do with is a button, either on the toolbar or inserted somewhere in the page, which enables Pluribo to run it's scan. Having it scan every page, even when it's not a review page (listing searches took ages because of Pluribo) was not helpful and, although I'll be keeping this installed in hope of future updates I will be keeping it disabled until it is more than a proof of concept.

Favicon Picker 2

Only one more change would make this perfect! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use folders a lot in my bookmarks toolbar to make even more options quickly available. If this could be extended to enable you to assign different icons for different folders then this would be the most perfect application eva!
