My Reviews

PrivacySuite

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using ABP and NoScript for a while, but have not installed them on my families computers. This has potential. It wraps-up some of the features in a less technical (maybe overly flashy) interface and tries to make things understandable. I'm going to give it a try on my brother and see if he can get it. I agree with another review that I'm not ready to dump all my other add-ons yet. But, there's real potential here. Just keep cooking.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.696). 

Google Translator, Web Translation, ImTranslator

nicely done Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use a lot of Google Translate for customer support and particularly I admit, went into this with low expectations. I think it's quite good and some of the useability features BEAT Google like the text to speech and easy highlighting. Good job. Please give me a non-ad-based option and some premium features and keep it updated. Danke!

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Liking it - but how about banner ads? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is becoming a big extension for me after using it now for almost two months. The ad-blocking is good and finally I can white-list, which is required because I need to un-block some of the javascript at least 8 of the sites I go to to regularly. I am still trying to to understand where the banner-blocking is though - It works fine alongside ABP but is blocking banner ads coming? Recommended. Thanks.

Sxipper

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a slick add-on and i've tried a number of add-ons to manage my passwords. Sxipper's UI is pretty good and definitely beats Roboform and some of the others. Also, they don't store my data online, which i like. my major compliant is the lack of great 3.6 support now and also the amount of small data fields they try to automatically manage for me gets confusing.

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

the new version 3.2 is working well for me. i'm blocking all the opt out ad networks but i'm not sure what to do about my cookies on different sites. it would be nice if TACO gave me some more information on this.

Fire.fm

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

if you listen to music regularly and use Firefox, this could be the best way to go. it's simple, clean and clear. it even gives you an option for enabling it to play your favorite artist channel at browser start which is cool. it would be nice if you could buy the tracks from more than Amazon though.
