My Reviews

Disconnect

Not bad, needs some work on speed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The only thing I don't like about this plug-in is that it really, really, really slows down the loading of Firefox. It's not a fast plug-in. (I tested by loading it by itself.) Otherwise, it seems very useful. What I don't understand is why the developers don't work together to make a single database of blocking rules (DoNotTrackMe, Ghostery, and Disconnect2). That way we won't feel the urge to load all three add-ons (they each capture slightly different "enemies" to protect us). Sometimes D2 will miss something and Ghostery catches it, or vice versa.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.10.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

Cookie Monster

Yummy cookies! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good plug-in for cookie management. Changing my review.. increased by one star. To get five stars, add a way to see cookie domains that were blocked successfully... so I can tell if I need to enable cookies for linked domains or redirected links! Thanks for a great job!!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.98.0). 

Cookie Button in the status bar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice utility -- I have always denied cookies when possible, only enabling them on trusted sites. However, in IE and FF it requires many clicks to go into Options, find the Cookie Exceptions, and write in the domain. Thanks for providing an easier way to do this task.

Unfortunately, it still requires a bit more effort when I *do* want cookies enabled. The reason is that the cookie menu only provides options for the sub-domains, not the 2nd-level domains (e.g. google.com, vs. www.google.com). If you could edit the menu to provide those two choices, it would be even more helpful.

Example menu structure I'd like to see:

GOOGLE.COM
Default, Reject, Accept, Session
MAIL.GOOGLE.COM
Default, Reject, Accept, Session
VIEW COOKIES for GOOGLE.COM

Thank you for this product and I look forward to future updates.
