My Reviews

ScrapBook

Wonderful Add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using ScrapBook "lightly" for years, but today I saved an entire Support website for an application that I own, but which is an older version. I am perfectly happy with the older version, but I was concerned that the support website for the older version would eventually be discontinued.

ScrapBook to the rescue! I saved the entire support website with all links, images, etc., so if/when the support site is ever discontinued, I have all of the support documents locally. Wow, that is amazingly useful, and it inspired me to contribute to the developer today!

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I had to save the support site several times to get it right. Unfortunately there is no way to set the filter parameters prior to beginning the Save. Filters (like save only current domain) are only accessible once the save begins, so I wasn't even aware of those options, and I had to re-do my save. Eventually I got it figured out and I'm thrilled with the result, but it does seem sensible to have the filter settings accessible at the outset, or even as a setting in the Preferences pane.

Still, this is a wonderful Add-on, and I'm happy to contribute to the ongoing development.

PrivacySuite

Mostly great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using Abine for quite a while and I have mostly very good things to say about it. However, one of my favorite features (Safe Email) stopped working about 9 months ago and though I have contacted support multiple times about this, it has not been fixed - very disappointing. This feature is so important to the PrivacySuite I can't believe it still doesn't work. My real email is registered and all of the "Safe Email" addresses show that they are being forwarded to my real email, but they never are forwarded.

I really wish they would fix this feature so I could give this add-on the high rating it deserves. It should be noted however that form filling is not perfect, but it is pretty good and getting better.

Please, fix Safe Email.
