My Reviews

uBlock Origin

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's fantastic. I cannot browse the web without this extension. It's lightweight and powerful, offers static and dynamic filtering (in advanced user mode). Thanks to the latter I don't feel the need to use NoScript or uMatrix anymore because it lets me block 3rd-party scripts. It doesn't offer as granular control as uMatrix but it's enough for my needs. Thank you gorhill!

Context Search WebExtension

It's awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using some other extension with similar functionality that doesn't rely on bookmarks but it's no longer open-source so I decided to give Context Search WebExtension a shot. Turns out that using bookmarks as a resource for search engines is much better approach. I use Firefox Sync so the extension doesn't need separate preference for syncing settings. I hope this extension will stay open source. Thanks!

Containers On The Go

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a great addition to Containers Extension. However, it is no longer released under GPL. Also author doesn't provide release notes.

Edit:
Thank you for the release notes. I reconsidered my opinion. This add-on deserves 5 stars despite proprietary license.

Why is open source license important to me as an user? It's because it happened too many times that I've been using some proprietary software which has been abandoned at some point or the maintainer decided to ship some crap with it and make it much worse. If something similar happens to open source software there's always someone who creates a fork and I don't end up looking for alternatives (which often do not even exist).

Edit2:
I'd like to suggest additional feature. Right now this extension provides an option to "Open link in new container" in the context menu for hyperlinks only. It would be nice to have this context menu option for selected link that is not a hyperlink, just like you have "Open link" option that Firefox gives you.

uBlock Origin

Best content blocker out there Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension for desktop and mobile. On Android it works much better than Adblock Plus. The only problem I have is that in 1.14.4 element picker doesn't work on AMO website for some reason. Nevertheless, the extension is great. Thanks gorhill!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.4). 

uMatrix

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At first I tried NoScript but it turned out to be too difficult to use. Then I found uMatrix. It combines ease of use with great functionality. It really helps to get rid off many annoyances of modern web and to significantly increase privacy. The option to backup settings in the cloud is super useful. Every extension should do that!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0). 

Firefox Multi-Account Containers

Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the reason why I still use Firefox. They care about users and their privacy and the fact that this extension exists proves that. The extension itself is excellent. Logging into multiple accounts on one website has never been easier. Thank you Mozilla!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.1). 

Cookie AutoDelete

Great replacement for SDC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a good replacement for SDC that is compatible with WebExtensions. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Self-Destructing Cookies

Very useful but needs an update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great for enhancing ones privacy but it's also the only one of my 9 add-ons which prevents me from enabling e10s. Please make it e10s compatible.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.11). 

StartupMaster

Essential add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a must have for anyone who is using more than one account in Thunderbird. Thunderbird would be unusable for me without it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.2).
