My Reviews

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pros: Very little to zero new windows open. No lag. Minimal effort to setup. Very small footprint on the browser window.

Cons: That pop ups even exist. (No fault of the Developer.)

I peruse adult sites frequently. Their is one particular popup (live jasmin) that seems to beat every imaginable popup software known. They constantly adapt the code so it makes its way through blockers. Since getting ABP, I've had maybe 3 get past. And I've never gotten error message or screen freeze because of ABP.

Synopsis: Highly recommend this add on. The Developers have built a very clean and stable add on. It's not the same market as blockers, but check out "Ghostery" as well as "proxilla" and see if those are right for you as well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

Ghostery

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pros: Not laggy. Seems to constantly catch backstage tracking ware. I get 3 or 4 list updates each week. That's very cool. That means they're on the ball and keeping Users informed as a policy rather then Microsofts version of "Let enough bugs build up and we'll make a huge Service pack. All the meanwhile leaving Our Users in danger." The setup is super simple. The ongoing use is easy. With about 6 mouse clicks, you're ready to go and in under 8 minutes.

Cons: The fact a product like this is even needed. (No fault of the Developer. I'm proud their are individuals out there willing to build and maintain such an excruciating project.) It's just sad that Online Companies feel the need to track Our every move, in the hopes of extracting Us for every last penny.

If I had to nit-pick and name an issue I've got w/ the add-on, I'd be hard pressed. I'm not sure I could really come up with one without being given a list of choices. I couple this with "proxilla".
I'm not a Conspiracy theorist or tin foil type hat person, I just feel I paid for the Computer, I pay for the internet connection, I deserve privacy. It's a shame it's not given and you've got to take these extra measures, but it's great that their are Individuals willing to build and maintain such projects.

Synopsis: Excellent and highly recommend this add on. Consider adding the addon "proxilla" as well.

Proxilla Glype Proxy Client

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pros: It works. It's not laggy. It's super simple to add/remove proxy servers from. It interface, settings, help bar are clear and concise.

Cons: Some Glype proxies are not simple copy/paste to add. (No fault of the Developer.) The .fr proxy added w/ the download is slow.

I tried the Fox, proxy and found It was not for me. I came back to proxilla. In my humble opinion, I recommend this add on as well as "Ghostery" to anyone who's serious about online privacy. My only request for the Developer if I had to make one, would be to make a link on the website for users to simply copy/paste current proxies to add into the preferences tab. Even w/o that ease, this is still 5 star software.
