I just don't understand! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Here is what I don't understand (please explain): I get behind the ideas that you're talking about. But if it is not using an auto-updated list from some web sites, then I assume that any list that it is using is manually updated. So if I have this addon installed and it is at v1.0 and it has been at v1.0 for some time now, then how is my list getting updated? Or, if this list is somehow built in to the program, which is what I think you are saying, then (either way) how am I staying updated? I'm not saying that I'm not, nor that yours is a bad way to do it (or I would not have installed it). I am just asking to please explain to me how it is being accomplished and thank you in advance for doing so! :)
Won't Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
If I enable it, when I click on links, it doesn't even try to contact the link's site. When I test it, it says that the local http proxy is unreachable and asks if polipo is working okay. Any ideas? I left everything at default and I'm using FF 3.6.12
What is the Deal? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Okay, I can see that there's a symbol at the top to click on, that supposedly starts the game. But how do you play it? I have been hitting every key on my keyboard after clicking on the icon and have tried clicking my mouse (both buttons) and I have looked at the context menus when I right click and there is just nothing that tells you how to play the game and no matter what I do, nothing is happening to the web page I am viewing when I try to start the game!
What is the deal here and why won't somebody answer me???
How Do You Start the Game??? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
There isn't one single thing that tells you how to start playing the game. How can I play it, if I can't start it? What keys do I hit to get to the game? I right clicked and don't see it in my context menu, nor in the tools pull down menu.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1).
What Do I See? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I am confused as to exactly what this extension does. Can you explain it in more detail, please? All I know is that it changes the address bar. Changes it how? Exactly how? What happens? What do I see?
I selected three as a rating because it forces you to select a rating now and I didn't know what it was, nor how good it is yet.
Let's Get Down to it Here! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I have not installed any of these yet, but have been seeing users and the developers go back and forth about this product. Here's how I see it.
Plus: Sharing passwords. This is important! To those who don't like it, don't do it! You don't have to share your data! But the fact is, I'm the one who sets up all of the accounts and passwords on my wife's laptop and mine and I use the same info on both, since the purchases are made from the same bank account and are sent to the same address!
Negative: I don't like the idea of sending all of my data to any one server. Users these days spend a lot of extra time finding apps that won't do that. And let's face it, if someone can write your security software for your servers, then someone can hack it and since you advertise that you have all of our data in one place, you're a target for hackers and it happens all the time!
The thing is, we don't know what can happen with it once all of it leaves our computers and goes to someone elses, lock, stock and barrel and that is quite different than a company's server being hacked and only losing one piece of our info, for that one web site.
And to address the comment about your company being sold one day, if a company does buy this one, while they may not be eager to harm what the company does, there are a lot of stupid people who buy companies and radically change things and hose it all up. Or they are the type that thinks something new is automatically better and try it and there goes our security!
And the developer said that if this happened, it would be closely watched. BY WHOM??? YOU'RE GONE!!! And the truth is, you're not going to announce it before hand so we can jump ship, because that would be a condition of the sale and it would hurt your chances of selling the company to someone anyway. And yes, it would require an update to change the security on us, but so what? They'd offer it as an enhancement and so, we'd think it was an improvement, not knowing what has changed and just download it and then its too late! After all, they wouldn't tell us it's going to be bad for us. :)
Negative: I don't see where this app has the ability to store and pull up receipts and to a pinhead like me who is constantly trying to remember who I bought something from and when, this is a nice feature, especially since I can never find my paper receipts either! :)
So anyway, that's my take on it and I think, or at least I hope, that it sums up what people are going to great lengths to try to say to other users and to the developers. And both sides can argue with these points, but they are facts. They may not happen, but yes, they could, no matter how good one thinks their security is.
So I hope this helped to sum up what folks are saying. I also think that it doesn't make sense for any users to go off all crazy about "what a scam" it is, etc.. If they are telling you what they're doing, then by definition, it cannot be a scam. :) You have a choice. You are informed.
And for the developers, I don't think it makes sense to keep talking about your security being so great, because your type of security has been hacked before and will be again and you are a target spot, since your software is known to collect all of a users info, so it's like one stop shopping for hackers! I'm not blaming you for that. I'm just saying that realistically, if someone can write the software that secures you, then that means that there's also someone who can hack it! And so, unless your security was written by God, you are not truly secure! :)
