My Reviews

Greasemonkey

What exactly is this supposed to do? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The description says, "Allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript" but that could mean anything. How about an example, maybe?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.20070607.0). 

DownThemAll!

The best DL Manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it all the time. I took a really hard look at the tool before writing this review to see if I had any suggestions, but even the limitations I thought were there are in fact dealt with.

Great tool; great interface.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9.10). 

Download Statusbar

This is how extensions should be done. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A short sweet little add-on that fills a real need and does what the user wants it to do. You just install it and off you go. It's obvious what it does and intuitive - no need for instructions.

Notice that the developers avoided the temptation to add a lot of bloat to stroke their egos.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1). 

FlashGot Mass Downloader

There are better download extensions Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Installed it; worked with it for a while; uninstalled it.
- Too hard to work with;
- No clearly focused purpose;
- Too much bloat.

Here's a not to all extension developers. Have a clearly defined purpose for your tool - one that you can stated with a single short sentence, and design with that in mind.
