It works. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Interesting fact. I tried another addon before this one, called 'Google/Yandex search link fix'. That one fixes the link on the surface (ctrl+c ctrl+v works as it should), but when you click on the link, the redirect from Google is used to load that page. (You people can attest this for yourselves by, for exemple, using an addon that prevents auto redirects, such as RequestPolicy).
So, I'm sticking with this one.

Honestly I just couldn't get it to work yet at all. I have also Ghostery and NoScript installed but that doesn't seem to be the problem.. I'll keep investigating. I'm on Firefox 9.0.1This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206.1-signed).
Controversies aside, it works. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Ok, so it seems the public reaction to the update hasn't been overwhelmingly positive..
I spent months without using Readability, so this transition shock didn't happen to me.
I think the idea of handling the processing of the page on a server is acceptable. It actually embodies theoretical advantages as for example the possibility of one being able to access what he wants to read across the plethora of devices he may use(Android phone, IPad, notebook, etc). But it would behoove you guys to give very explicit privacy and security reassurances to the users. Htpps instead of http whenever possible would make me at least happier.
As for TypeKit, maybe it would make people happier if you switched to Google Web Fonts? I don't know...
I haven't experienced any noticeable slowness.
The guy who complained that everything doesn't need to be monetized... Man, everybody needs to eat, pay bills, and so on. The price one pays for a free app that is somone's side project, is that, if that person could instead be sustained by the given side project and therefore fully committed, a much better service could be provided.
ps: Ctrl + k has always been the shortcut to move focus to Firefox Search Box. The one in the upper right..
While this can easily be changed I bet a lot of people won't be happy.
