My Reviews

PDF Viewer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great with Pale Moon 64bit without the pdf vulnerabilities exploited by malware pushing scum.

Adguard AdBlocker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely the best ad and tracking cookie blocker I've used. Some of the others are excellent at blocking one or the other, and a couple block both pretty well, but none work as well as Adguard for me. The others also slow my browsers to varying degrees - the two best pure adblockers increase Mozilla based browser load time, ABP (more than triple) and ABE(about double) - with Adguard, I notice little or no difference in startup times.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2.8). 

Ixquick HTTPS Privacy Search Engine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent results, very private.

PrivacySuite

buggy, slow, installs it's own permanent junk Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on does seem to block or remove most cookies, BUT... here is the reason I gave when I uninstalled this and then TACO 4.0 beta (which I tried it a few days later hoping it had the bugs fixed) and involuntarily had a window opened in my browser by Abine asking why : "The reason that I uninstalled is the same as privacysuite 0.738 ; the security pop-up doesn't work properly on web site opening and no cookie pop-up on mouse hover over status bar icon in 4 different versions of Firefox from 5.0 to 7.0.1(newest)(and YES, I turned on both options in preferences). Privacysuite 0.736 works correctly but badly slows the browser, particularly on start-up. I also don't like the FACT that upon uninstall, you left persistent (unremoveable?) cookies on my computer - one of the very things you claim to prevent!" . This after I had submitted a bug report and recieved an email reply stating that they were not aware of any problems, but if there was a problem, it would be due to an "older" version of Firefox I was using (I submitted the bug report with Firefox 5.0.1 which had been released all of two months earlier and was the last version that I tried the add-on with, along with three more recent builds). Too bad. This add-on looked promising, but seems to get less useable with each new build.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.739).
