My Reviews

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

fantastic! keeps my browser clutter free.. one less menu bar gives quite a big of extra screen realestate, and with this I won't miss it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.3). 

Hide Navigation Bar

great, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this is much needed to salvage screen real-estate on ever smaller laptops. it is fantastic when it works. however, while I adored the autohide feature (rather than using f2 which sorta defeats its purpose--why not f11?), it seems to be a bit unstable. In the several days that I have installed it, firefox 3 has at worst been brought to crash, and some other times to lag terribly for some process, and then the auto-hide feature would disappear until I press f2. All indications is on this extension for disabling it solves the problem. Not sure what is going wrong but I sure hope it gets fixed soon, because i love this thing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Forecastfox l10n

more accurate than forecastfox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

everything I wished forecastfox can be: lean and accurate. Finally now with more accurate data source, which has been forecastfox's fatal flaw. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.2007100301). 

IE Tab

a necessity! should be recommended Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't know why this extension isn't listed in the recommended add-on list. It's probably one of the most essential add-on as not all the pages are customized for firefox and there are many IE only pages. Hateful as they are, it's better to stay within the firefox environment which is enabled with this extremely useful extension, proven itself over and over again for the past few years that I've used it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.3.20070528). 

Forecastfox Weather

data unreliable Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it's a great extension. it's stable, provides much needed information, and very customizable. However, I can't customize where the extension get its data. It gets data from accuweather, which ironically, isn't very accurate. as i type now, there is a difference of 6 degrees Celsius between my observed temperature (also measured as such on weather.com), and one displayed on the forecastfox. The forecast isn't all that on target either. I concur with the reviewer below, that if the data isn't accurate, the very well written extension loses its functionality completely. I wish they will change to a better data source. Oh, and we can use a bigger radar map.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.2).
