My Reviews

Scriptish

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome. Good to see I'm not the only one who was missing essential features such as @run-at and update capabilities.

This is a great fork and worthy of succeeding Greasemonkey IMO.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1b9). 

Controle de Scripts

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's a great idea in concept, but the extension doesn't work too well (the Security Policies manager in particular).

Managing the default policy works, but anything beyond that is broken.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still a must-have security add-on.

Regarding the confusion below, a new feature introduced (rather silently) in NS 2.0 periodically requests a page that echoes your public IP address, and also your own IP address, to check if you are behind a poorly configured router. So these IP addresses you're seeing are either 82.103.139.52 (secure.informaction.com) or your own. And if YOU are in a spam black list, investigate this or, alternatively, stop spamming.

The reason noscript.net and affiliated websites aren't loading is most likely that the periodic requests from every NoScript user in the world have fried the author's server.

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

RefControl

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent privacy tool, works as advertised.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.13). 

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

This should be a separate add-on Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Pushing this Abine thing as an "update" to TACO is *NOT* OK. Maybe I should start reading update notes... I don't know what I expected when such a once-simple extension advanced a whole major-version number, but it wasn't this. I wonder how this got past the editors; surely an "update" 363 times the size of the old version (from 8 KB to 3 MB) isn't too common.

Aside from that:
* It's bloated; freezes on startup
* Hard to understand/use, awkward interface
* Half-obfuscated code (minified, making the source hard to read and understand)
* Does a million things nobody who installed TACO 2.0 signed up for

These new features may or may not work as promised, but even so, and at the risk of repeating myself, this should be a new add-on and NOT an update.

Anyone wishing to install the old version can do so using the "View All Versions" link below the Release Notes; 2.0 is what you probably want.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.01). 

Better YouTube

Meh Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I found this to be mostly redundant. The alternate video player doesn't work, the YouTube Download option has been done before and has been done better (without using an external site) and the YouTube Theater script -- well, it works as expected but I it's pretty useless too.

Even if you don't have a YouTube account (ie. can't comment nor rate) and never browse any related videos, more often than not the video description is relevant.
