My Reviews

Pencil

pls update for FF 12 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love the concept. Please update for Firefox 12. Thanks!

Quicker Filer

an indespensible tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me this is an indispensable extension, now integral to my use of Thunderbird. I don't want to imagine managing mail without it. My only complaint, [update: doesn't exist!, see developer response] <strike>a small one, is that the dialog is too narrow to show long folder names (think nested).</strike>

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

Text Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and to the point, it Just Works. No extra menu clutter or navigation necessary. Piro has been keeping it up to date for a long time. Thanks!

Video Search and Downloader

bandwidth unfriendly Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Clipta does not leverage your cache, but downloads the video independently for each action. Thus for any given video you may end up downloading it 3 times: a) when start playing the video in the browser (so Clipta can see it in the first place), b) when you press Play in the Clipta Downloader window, and c) when you press Download in the Clipta Download window. If you're on metered bandwidth you definitely don't want this extension.

Video Search and Downloader

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you're on metered bandwidth you may want to look somewhere else. Clipta is nice but hungry: it doesn't leverage your firefox cache, but downloads the video independently. Since you have start playing the video before Clipta can see it, and thus you start filling your cache you either end up downloading every video you wish save twice, or do a lot of dancing around with the play & back/close tab buttons.
