Photobucket Uploader (unofficial)

One of the Best User-Controlled Add-Ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Out of all my add-ons, plug-ins, and extensions currently active in my Firefox browser, there are very few that are as dynamically effective as Photobucket Uploader.

This is one I can, and do, use on a daily basis. It is efficient, user-friendly, and unobtrusive. Within a matter of just a couple of minutes I can go from finding a photo online, to uploading it (complete with title, file name, and description) to a specific folder within my Photobucket account, to sharing it across my networks.

Thank you for one of the best user-controlled add-ons I've found to date, and by far one of my all-time favorites.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Addendum

Have always enjoyed the show, until... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Regardless of the varied selection and themes of art displayed (or rather, because of them) I have enjoyed the the galleries, and have looked forward to each new show.

That is until the most recent...

Previously, each set reflected a theme. Some underlying pulse was present in the shows that actually had me looking for the art/photographs to see what thought, emotion, or statement would pop out.

However, the current menagerie of GIF animation is over the top, even for this add-on. Reminiscent of the early days of web design, where flying pigs and bouncing arrows seemed to border every paragraph of content (such pages I navigate away from as quick as my index finger can flex), the latest set is more in the vein of Saturday morning cartoons than Sunday afternoons at the Galleria.

This is not intended to show disrespect to the artists involved. Having designed my fair share of GIF animations, I am fully aware of the time and effort involved in their productions. I am just surprised and a bit disappointed that Add-Art-Team felt it was appropriate to turn our browsing experience into a visually exhausting exercise for the next couple of weeks.

All in all, I am still looking forward to the next show, but until then the "Disable" feature is the more valuable of choices for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).
