My Reviews

Blackout

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic add-on. Please add support for newer FF versions!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

FF Rocker

Perfect, elegant, small Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on that adds a simple feature which should have become part of about:config years ago. Tiny & efficient, as it should be.

This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Ghostery

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ghostery's functions should be built into Firefox.

The add-on itself is a great work of coding. It clocks in at 150 KB, and offers far more than other, much more resource heavy security add-ons.

A big thank you to the developer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.2.1-signed). 

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Perfectly done Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on: It always works, and is always being improved. I wish there were a stand-alone program for Windows that did the same thing.

A big thank you to the developer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.6.1-signed). 

FF Rocker

A great work of coding. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tested all of the Firefox rocker gesture supporting add-ons, and this is by far the best. It seems to be perfectly coded, adding rocker functionality and clocking in at just 10 KB.

Great work, and thank you to the author. I wish that all FF add-ons were this well executed.

FF Rocker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, tiny, perfect.

Please update this to work with FF4.

Greasemonkey

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on, especially when combined with Greasefire. There are a lot of fantastic scripts for most popular sites/pages. It is an excellent piece of programming to boot, being tiny and well maintained. Kudos for making it freely available.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.20090123.1). 

Smart Stop/Reload

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is so nice that it should be built-in. It's an excellent piece of programming and very well maintained. Kudos

Tiny Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, and saves a lot of valuable screen space that you never really use. I love that you can keep your bookmarks unhidden if desired.

It's also a beautiful piece of programming, being absolutely tiny and very well maintained. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was a long-time Fast Dial user who wanted something more customizable and better coded. I found that in Speed Dial. It is freaking tiny considering how feature packed and just plain beautiful it is, and the authors keep it very well maintained. I love that I can export my settings and Dials. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1). 

Greasefire

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A nice addition to Greasemonkey. It is a beautiful piece of programming, being tiny and very well maintained. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

oldbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, and saves a lot of valuable screen space that you never really use. I love that you can keep your bookmarks unhidden if desired.

It's also a beautiful piece of programming, being absolutely tiny and very well maintained. Kudos

BetterPrivacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A wonderful add-on that every user should use to maintain their right to privacy. Something hidden corporate opt-ins strip from us.

Once set up you will never notice BP. It's a beautiful piece of programming code, being tiny and very well maintained.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.39). 

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes google not-evil by removing tracking and ads. |It also makes the various Google components more usable by adding streaming page loads and links to other search engines.

This add-on is a beautiful piece of programming code; It's tiny and very well-maintained. Kudos

GMail Checker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says. I find this add-on to be a beautiful piece of programming code; It's tiny and well-maintained. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Tiny Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, and is a beautiful piece of programming code. Keep up the excellent work, and thanks for making this freely available.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

World Weather+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this add-on, it is absolutely tiny and has only ever given me a problem when the weather server was not available. Keep up the excellent work, and thank you for making this freely available.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4). 

SyncPlaces

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on, with a very nice set of options. It simply backs up your bookmarks to a personal server, with strong 256-bit encryption.

One feature I would like to see added is the option to not back up stored passwords. Simply because I want my passwords saved/backed up on some computers, but not on others, for obvious reasons.

Keep up the great work, and thanks for making this freely available.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.0). 

World Weather+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice add-on, great work! Please keep working on this, I love it as it is but also see a lot of future potential. cheers

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.4). 

Fast Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Doesn't play well with tinybar. At first tiny bar was screwed up after the 2.8 update, now tiny bar is working (randomly) and fast dial isn't.
I'm rating this based on previous versions, it's by far my favorite add-on, keep up the excellent work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8).
