My Reviews

IE NetRenderer

interesting but largely useless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is an interesting concept, and though I'm not sure what other options are available for developers working on platforms aside from windows to view their webpages as rendered by various versions of Internet Explorer, this plugin is more of a novelty than a useful tool.

It sends the request for the page you wish to view to an outside server and has them render the page, take a screenshot, and sends the screenshot back to you.

No ability to test dynamic elements, view or edit the source, and I imagine it won't work for sites behind a firewall.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser)

Extremely useful but causes crashes Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would give this plugin a 10 because it is exactly what I think a pane-splitting plugin should do (well, I really think it should come baked in..) and how it should operate, but it does seem to increase the likelihood of the browser crashing or freezing greatly. It might be due to incompatibilities with my other Add-ons (which I can't do without - Firebug and LORI).
Another very odd thing I have noticed is that firefox locking up and Microsoft Outlook (my work email client) locking up seem to be inexplicably related. Not sure what to make of that.

I would love to keep this Add-on installed but for now it's just not quite ready.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2007070801).
