My Reviews

WordReference Translator

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Being able to choose only ONE word for translation and not being able to highlight a whole phrase greatly reduces the convenience of this add-on in my opinion. Also counting against this add-on -- and, the dealbreaker for me -- is that the Options forces you to choose a default translation scheme: always English to Spanish, or French to German, or Whatever to Whatever. How is this helpful for a translation tool? Will I always be wanting to translate from English to Spanish? what if I'm looking to translate from Russian into English? Then, I have to go into Add-on's; go into WordReference's Options; change the scheme; and, then go back to the page to double-click the word I want to figure out. This is just too much of a waste of time. Sorry, I'm uninstalling this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.4). 

Media Converter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hasn't been updated since 2009 . . . and, it shows. I've downloaded it several times now hoping for some success, and have yet to get it to work. On the other hand, I've used YouTubeDownloader frequently for Firefox and IE8 without a hitch. I'm a little bit suspicious of all these 4- and 5-star reviews.

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Downloads okay . . . in formats that Windows Media Player can't open. No conversion to .wmv. Easy to use, but essentially worthless.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This worked now and then, when it wanted to. Frequently, it would download and say it converted to .wmv . . . and, a .wmv file would appear in the My Videos folder . . . only to find out later that there was nothing there! I was pulling out my hair for HOURS trying to figure out why my Sony Walkman MP3 wasn't recognizing the files: no content!

After a day of trying, I was able to get only 2 (count 'em) .flv videos converted to .wmv and onto my MP3 player. Ludicrous!

This software is not worth the time or effort. Avoid!
