My Reviews

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

Great to keep an eye on Web page of interet Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on allows to scan web pages (entirely or partially) on a frequency you define.

Except for some minor bugs/improvements (ex: when you create a new item you have to close the page to see content of the groups, it would be nice if you access directly to unread when you open the watch-list, it would be great if there could be a warning for the "broken" items of the watch-list), it definitively does the job. I recommend it.

2 suggestions of improvements:
- If used to scan a page on price, a setting to access rapidly to the minimum price.
- the stats of updates

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.9). 

Nimbus Screen Capture - editable screenshots

Very good to "print" web pages Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on allows to keep an image of the web pages (visible part or entire page) and edit it. The editor is easier and more flexible that some other similar add-ons I have tried (ex: FireShot).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.7.5). 

CardBook

Interesting but some issues with Gmail Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have tried this extension with Gmail, first time it works but only with contacts that are in the group that my android phone displays as "My Contacts" (I guess this is the default group in Gmail when you create/modify a contact). They are in Cardbook in a category named "Uncategorised".

I delete this category by mistake, the add-on doesn't work anymore (I see the account but no more synchronization). It seems reinstalling does not solve the issue (even by deleting manually the Cardbook items in the profile directory), I guess some residual items are kept somewhere.

So this add-on seems promising but the last update may have some bugs, I will definitively retry again when all contacts in all gmail groups could be loaded (if it's possible).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.9). 

Update Scanner

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very great extension to keep automatically an eye on web pages of interest.
I would make it a five stars if, in addition of triggering detection on a minimal number of characters, it allows me to detect change between 2 parametrized strings of the update Scanner's pages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.10.1-signed). 

RequestPolicy

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is very interesting as it gives information about existing cross-site request, it should be in the future a good companion to "NoScript" and "Ghostery".

However at this time, the default behavior is to forbid all cross-site Request except the you have allowed manually : it is too much work to allow them one by one for all sites (some sites does not work well if you don't).

I will test it again if in future version the default behavior could be changed to allow everything except the one you forbid manually.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.18.1-signed.1-signed).
