In a little more detail...

- I'm a kind of person who wants to say everything I want to say the honest way, even if it's going to break someone's heart.

- I can always post my reviews again and again, in case someone use a cheap trick to improve his or her product's rating by removing the reviews that critisize its flaws. These days liars like that can be found everywhere. Try review sites. Or Firefox's addon page. You'll find many of them. Just don't be surprised.

- As a customer or user, when I find something bad or doesn't meet my expectations, I will honestly say that it is bad and doesn't meet my expectations. No companies could pay me to say something good about them if they don't deserve it.

- I have no time to lie about anything.

My Reviews

Stop YouTube Autoplay

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Pros: I still don't know if there's any...

Cons: Doesn't stop or prevent YouTube videos from autoplaying on YouTube site. Useless against YouTube videos embedded on blogs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.1-signed). 

DownThemAll!

Firefox's "Official" Download Manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really love this addon. It saves my time when downloading big files like virus definitions or drivers. Doesn't work with most file hosting sites (if using free account) but that's just something I expected. So far so good.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.13.1-signed). 

Adblock Plus

A Must Have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great addon. Everytime I install Firefox, I always make sure this baby is on board. The best way to prevent ads and anything from stealing your valuable bandwith and wasting your precious time.

Flash Video Downloader - YouTube HD Download [4K]

Good, But Not Perfect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Initially I planned to give this addon 5 stars. But I decided to give it 3 instead of 5 because of the addon's habit to autolaunch its website every single time it gets updated. I had bad experiences from malwares and trojans, and the way the addon insists on autolaunching its website everytime it gets updated reminds me of those bad experiences and is getting on my nerves (and eventually convinced me to use my firewall to block all the links to the author's website). AdBlock Plus is the perfect example of how an addon can be so helpful yet it never "warned" me with unnecessary information. It does its job without have to annoy me with anything, which is great. Sorry, I'm not the kind of user who wants to get informed everytime something gets updated. Unless it's a massive upgrade like Microsoft's Service Packs, I prefer silent install (no redirection to any websites). I check all addons' version and changelog manually, and I always do. A simple notification like the Firefox's built-in one that pops up when a user sucessfully installed an addon would do the trick nicely.

Also, I forgot to mention about this in my previous review, probably deleted because someone doesn't want or like a 3-star review. This addon support adverts, meaning you'll get to see... well, what else, adverts of other products/tools from the same author. I'm not interested in this kind of thing. Honestly, I think this could be a great addon. Could be.

Regardless, this is a great addon. If you want a good video downloader, then you shouldn't look elsewhere. Certainly not the best video downloader in my book, but it gets the job done. Well, most of the time.

p.s. this is an honest review based on my own experience using this addon. The 3-star rating from me is based on the adverts the addon triggers, and I have nothing against the author. Just an addon that doesn't really meet my expectations.
