My Reviews

Copy Links

Doesn't also copy the anchors Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately it doesn't also copy the anchor text and place it alongside the URLs. It just copies the URLs.

FireLinkReport

Works if you downgrade Firebug Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Had to downgrade Firebug to 1.5 to get this to work with the latest Firefox (Jan 2011). I found it was not much use for me, though - as it can't export a list of URLs and anchor text in comma delimited format or any other format that will get Excel to place the URLs and anchor text alongside each other.

Link Gopher

Needs a link title option Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This works wonderfully and quickly, but it uses the extracted URL as the anchor (link title). It needs to have the option of also extracting the original link title, and then displaying that instead of the raw URL in the resulting links list.

FlashVideoReplacer

Found to be broken on multiple sites and videos Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Sorry, but this simply doesn't work for me. YouTube videos never load. Quicktime effectively freezes the browser for a minute or more and needs to be force-quit. I have the latest Firefox, the latest WMP and Quicktime, and the latest K-Lite codecs. Trying this addon with Vimeo shows no change in the video delivery method at all. Uninstalled.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7).

Seems to have stopped working, Nov 2010 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sadly it appears to have stopped having any effect, Nov 2010. Possibly this is the result of either: incompatibility with the latest version of Firefox, or because of the recent wild changes at the main Google Search Results service. The similar Google Blacklist for the Chrome browser has also stopped working recently - so I guess it's a Google issue. I've toggled on and off a variety of other plugins and addons, and none of those are the cause of the failure. I wish this unique addon would see more work done on it, and add import/export - I'd pay $10 a year for it.

How to export Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I found a way to export your personal banned list. In the Firefox address bar type:

about:config

Scroll down to the line for: extensions.surfclarity.patterns

Look along the line and you find the list of URLs you have entered in SurfClarity. They can be copied out as plain text. You can also modify them.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Wonderful, many thanks. Robust and reliable, unlike some of the GreaseMonkey scripts that claim to do the same thing. This addon has the potential to be as huge as Ad-block, _if_ future versions allow mass import/export of URL lists. It would also be useful to see small discreet "kill buttons" (maybe just a tiny x-mark) appended after each green URL in the Google results- when clicked the URL would be passed to the addon's Preferences box.

Custom Google Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

An excellent and worthy addon. It needs a "backup my CSE as an XML" button, but I have guidance on backup your CSE manually here:

CSEs set up with this add-on can be collaborative - but _how can users contribute_? A user who has the addon installed - and who is searching a collaborative CSE - does not see the standard promote/block icons which the CSEs creator sees?
