My Reviews

Live Stream Notifier

Good but needs work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It works, don't get me wrong. I like that I can finally use Firefox as a browser over Chrome. Yet, the add-on doesn't update in the 30 seconds it says it does (and I know that people are long done with streaming). Also, username detection is a bit flawed, probably in regards to the add-on having been primarily a Justin.tv live notifier and not a Twitch.tv one. The app is good, but not in five-star territory just yet.One more thing: it would be cool to be able to decide how long the notification box stays visible. I'm always frustrated in seeing the box in the corner of my eye, but missing who just went live because it's gone 3-5 seconds later.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.4). 

Speed Dial [FVD] - New Tab Page, Sync...

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As I ready to re-install this onto Firefox, I came across an issue.
I forgot what the name of it was at first, but it came up via search results. But then, I had to recall that FF has somewhat of a New Tab start-up page itself, and while it looks nice, is lacking. But one thing I noticed with their start-up page and yours is the fact that when a New Tab is brought up, it seemingly acts as one of the pages I have up. With FF's, it's instant and I can quickly click and go to whatever I clicked on. With FVD, it takes a minute for it to load up (not a literal minute) and I'm contemplating alternate add-ons to satisfy such a minor need as this.

Love the add-on don't get me wrong, but I need quick, on-the-fly loading.

Twitbin - Twitter Sidebar for Firefox

Not bad, but not top-of-the-line either Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's....there? Haha, I mean, it works. It does everything I hoped it could do, while being the add-on I expected it to be (and the add-on I found to be the best). I can tweet, I can reply, I can favorite, I can send messages. But...a couple of things:

-I wish I could customize the way I can go about doing retweets, etc. I didn't realize I could, in fact, retweet and put a few words before the retweet (seemingly known as "old-school retweet") by right-clicking on the tweet I wanted to post. It was a very missed feature I almost overlooked. So I hope that instead of just a "retweet", I would have the option to either retweet or retweet/reply or whatever.
-I was also hoping to see the conversation between two people if they were talking. Maybe it could be in a little pop-up to the side when I hover over it, or just click on it and it shows the conversation. I clicked and nothing happened.
-I can't @[name] anyone. I probably can, but I'm not good at remembering screennames. And I was really hoping Something popped up to help me out, but no luck.

In short, I still like and use the add-on as if it were a great add-on....but it's not a great add-on RIGHT NOW, haha. But it's getting there :)
