My Reviews

HideImages

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't remember state when loading a new web page in current tab. Doesn't have an option to apply to all tabs/windows.

Image Block

Doesn't work.

Amazon.com

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work. Clicking on links or searching gives me blank results.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2). 

NASA Night Launch

Fantastic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the few dark skins available that won't make a professional designer cringe.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.20081031).

Uppity

Works great. Love the drop-down list with links to each folder in the URL's directory structure.

ThumbStrips

Visionary! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

ThumbStrips is ahead of its time. This is the kind of stunningly simple, elegant, useful addon that ups the ante for how we browse the web. The comparison to Mac OS is apt: the web has evolved into something that is integrally visual, and like Apple, this addon's developers seized upon that insight and have opened a new dimension of searching capability and productivity.

If you're a visual person, you've probably wished for this addon like I did before you knew about its existence. "What was that site that had that great article about monkeys manning space flights? All I remember was that it had a blue background and a picture of a chimp in a spacesuit..." Such dilemmas are things of the past.

I do have a few wishes for the future of its development. As it stands, ThumbStrips doesn't capture Flash (and I assume raw video without a Flash player container?), so it's of limited use with sites that have a large amount of motion content. Also, it would be nice if ThumbStrips could collapse all pages from one domain into their own folder or tree that could be expanded by the user. And it would be great to have some control over the chrome of the addon--for instance, I'd love to keep the ThumbStrips panel open all the time as a transparent overlay, and perhaps scroll rows of strips vertically instead of horizontally.

In sum, ThumbStrips is one of those little gems that remind you about what makes the experience of using Firefox so great. It's delightfully usable and has a bright future ahead.
