I use it all the time. Super helpful, especially in Linux. Other add ons may do the same thing, but this one is best. Why?--because it does one thing perfectly and effortlessly; nothing more, nothing less. Minimalism at its most beautiful. Clears input fields with the roll of the middle button. Works on address+search bar; doesnt' clear fields that are part of a web page, so you won't accidentally delete text or information forms. No extra buttons takinging up space. No option menus or settings to stress over. I works like a built in feature.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
I tried a few different extensions that perform the same function--clearing out text in the search and address bars to allow for an easy middle-click paste into the desired field. I give preference to Xclear because it (1) it works, (2) its simple and to the point: nothing extraneous, and (3) it emphasized being a lightweight add-on.
One suggestion I might offer to improve the add-on in the future would be to make it capable of clearing the entry field by rolling the middle button up or down when placed over the field to be cleared. This would elimate the extra movement and mouseclick, thereby making the app more convient and ultimately more enjoyable.
This translator worked great until I updated firefox to 3.6.9, and then it stopped working!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).
Exactly what I needed to view where a link is going to take me without having to toggle the status bar display.
