My Reviews

SiteLauncher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mr Morrison,
I thank you for your prompt response to my e-mail request for tech support.
I downloaded and installed the beta 0.9.9b2 from your website and it does seem to address each and every concern that I and my fellow Firefox users asked you in the forum to consider looking into. I found all of the aforementioned upgrades and improvements and managed to configure the app even more to my liking. My only concern was the very thing that I first wrote to you about and that was the option to remove the site launcher menu item. All of the other changes I found in the options menu in the add-ons extension panel. Changing the menu item display was not an idiot proof check box in the add-ons panel but rather required me to go into the about:config files to toggle my choice from true to false with regards to the show menu choice. I managed to figure this out for myself with a little bit of tinkering, However, being a relative newcomer to Firefox I did this with great trepidation as it seems like from all I have read and all the warnings, fooling around with the about config files in Firefox is somewhat akin to plundering around in the Windows registry when you have no clue what you are doing; a recipe for disaster !. Nonetheless, I figured it out and other than the fact that I somehow lost all of my open tabs, I rebooted Firefox and now everything seems to be working just fine and the menu item is gone. So i guess I am either a little brighter than I thought or just lucky. Anyway, in a nutshell, my rating of your app went from a 3 to a 5+ with the upgrade and the care and concern you showed by responding to my tech support request in less than a day. Highest Regards, R.C. Hicken

SiteLauncher

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice, useful, and promising little app. I like the idea behind it but it needs a little polish. Mainly, the menu entry is large, wastes valuable space, and is not even user configurable. Also, clickable links, (as well as the keyboard selection method) would add a nice touch but I wouldn't deem it a prerequisite. To the author's credit he seems to respond to comments posted here and willing to address users concerns and suggestions and offers to address these two concerns in his next update. Author went as far as to offer input on patches for the above but that was a little over my head (I am not a computer newbie but somewhat new to Firefox) but I appreciate the effort on his part nonetheless.

Nice clean little app.Useful, does what it says and no issues or conflicts found in XP/FF3.0.5.Red Button does everything I need it to.Top 10 on my list of practical must have apps.

Apparently not configured to work for any US ISP's as I don't see any listed on the set-up options menu and doesn't appear to work with AT&T. If that is the case it should be mentioned in the "long description" to save from wasting time downloading and installing
