My Reviews

ImTranslator - Google Translator, Dictionary, TTS

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent.
Performs Russian to English and German to English idioms the best of all software I have tried.
Highly recommend to linguists, LOTE speakers, researchers and academics.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.01.1-signed). 

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. MUST have Add-on.
I often forget it's an add-on- it should be included in the Mozilla code.
Love the way you can colour the status bars to your liking.
performs flawlessly and dose everything it promises.

DownThemAll!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Among the best of the Add-ons.

Would be good if you could rename downloads.
Very useful tool.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Superb.
Comic Book Guy says, "BEST video downloader EVERRRR."
Works very well. I especially like the option of downloading various quality and formats directly.
I even switched from FlashGot.
I also like being able to easily opt out of full-frontal hardcore pornography- amateur or professional- very useful for those of us in the corporate world.
Always updated promptly.
Personal experience has found it a little slow at times downloading- but in these instances I use the "Copy URL" feature to put it into DTA- and it's all gravy baby.

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very pleasantly surprised. Very useful for those who do hours of research.
Google's own menu is crap- this greatly expands Google's usefulness.
To be honest- Google should be giving these guys money.

Web of Trust - WOT

Not worth using. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I agree with Surendhar.
The concept is good, but the execution is very poorly thought out. Legitimate companies which privately register (to avoid nuisance telemarketers etc) are penalized- without regard to actual website content.
Private internet registration is an annual cost- thus it would seem unlikely a nuisance/malicious site would bear this cost burden.
Furthermore- it is possible and probable.nuisance and harmful sites provide dishonest information to the Internet Registration- thus they are falsely included in the "Web of Trust".
I found the program lacking, somewhat laggy and a nuisance.
I removed it- it is somewhat redundant.

Ghostery

10 thumbs up! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. I would argue THE MOST ESSENTIAL ADD-ON followed by a very close Ad Block plus.Does everything it promises and more.It is a preventative anti-spyware as well- it keeps your computer "immunised" from spyware/malware/ pop-up and pop-under crap.Blocks all (or close enough) tracking crap. Very low on machine resources.I especially like the Context menu- very clear, concise and easily navigable.

Post script: I read through all of the developer's responses and found they were highly professional: courteous and explanatory.
Superb work guys.

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I would agree with Surendhar.
the concept is good. But the ranking system is flawed- and not based on content- but on (as Surendahr states) site registration- private versus public.
This is a very stupid method of ranking- as publicly registered sites can also feasibly register themselves falsely.

Good idea. Poorly executed. I removed it. Don;t bother with it.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. I recommend this add-on along with Adblock to passively secure your computer against spyware and malware.

The add-on performs flawlessly. Some may find it tiresome to allow certain scripts while disallowing others (most especially for file download sites). To me, I found it a learning experience to improve my internetz skilz. it is a tiny issue- overall it saves time and money (especially cleaning a computer of malware crap).

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. The add-on is VITAL if you want your computer to remain Spyware free. It is fully functional and performs beyond what it presents itself as.

I have argued elsewhere against payment for add-ons.
Here, I am contradicted- I feel it is justified- Mr Palant has literally saved me time and money- thus I have paid (under a different persona).
Excellent work, and still free. Spasiba Mr Palant.
