My Reviews

FireTitle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for getting a FF3 version working. I have only had it for 5 minutes, and I have already set it up to label my windows the way I want them. Thank you for this fantastic tool.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0). 

FireTitle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would love to use this in Firefox 3.0.1 on Windows Vista. If you create a new compatible version, I am sure many would be appreciative.

Duplicate Tab

PERFECT: *Better* than IE's tab duplication Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This lightweight extension allows one to open a duplicate tab (aka Internet Explorer style behavior) by either hitting Ctl-Shift-U or by selecting "Duplicate tab" on the pull-down menu of the current tab. When doing either of these it creates a new tab that is the duplicate of the current tab, complete with the history of the current tab. This is a much needed feature in FF, and I am glad to have found this extension. Why is it better than the IE implementation, you may ask? The reason is that although I often want to create a duplicate tab, most of the new tabs that I want to create I want to be blank tabs that start up fast. Whereas IE is setup to always create duplicate tabs or always create blank tabs, this FF extension allows the default Ctl-T to quickly create a blank tab, but allows Ctl-Shift-U to create a duplicate one. Many kudos to the authors of this. Also, I should note that it does *NOT* interfere with my other favorite tab extensions (Last Tab, Session Manager, Colorful Tabs, Taboo).

Session Manager

LIFE SAVER Rated 4 out of 5 stars

So many times I had accidentally closed not just a tab, but a whole window of tabs, by mistake. Session Manager to the rescue, a quick undo or restore of one tab or a whole window of tabs is easily done. Additionally, the ability to save an entire session (all windows and tabs) is a nice tool that I sometimes use in cases such as the following: I have a bunch of FF windows/tabs open, but for memory/speed purposes I want to close them while I work on some other CPU/memory intensive stuff for a few hours while still leaving FF open for minimal browsing services --- now I can do this by saving everything as a named session and closing all the windows, and then later restore the named session.

This works great, and doesn't conflict with my other tab extensions (Taboo, ColorfulTabs, LastTab).

WISHLIST: As someone who uses two computers at home, plus a laptop while traveling, it would be nice if there were an option for "remote" storage of a session. There is a Firefox add-on called Linkwad which does this, and it would be really nice if Session Manager could build Linkwad style functionality into it (I would rather have a single extensions, Session Manager, that handles all of my session storage -- both local and remote -- rather than having to deal with two different session managers, which complicates things a bit).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.1.5). 

LastTab

10 out of 10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As a tabaholic, I often had a hard time switching back and forth between 2 or 3 tabs out of the 15 or so I might have open. This lightweight extension, which also has some good customization options, is exactly what I was looking for. If someone wants a large/heavy extension that contains similar functionality one can get TabMixPlus....but, TabMixPlus is not only heavy/large, but also it stopped another of my favorite extensions from working (Taboo). I find that LastTab is a FANTASTIC lightweight extension, and it can be successfully paired with these other great extensions if one wants some additionally tab functionality: Colorful Tabs, Session Manager, and Taboo.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.5). 

Taboo

Great, but am looking forward to more features Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic lightweight extension. I had a habit of leaving LOTS of tabs open -- I am a tabaholic -- which drastically slowed down Firefox (and made startups/reloads of sessions extremely slow). This program is a lifesaver for someone like me. FireFox is once again fast.

I judy requested a couple of features (being able to move/reorder the preview windows displayed by Taboo, and being able to have larger preview windows in Taboo).

Note: although this extension fails to work with TabMixPlus, a simple workaround that I found was to replace TabMixPlus with the trio of Colorful Tabs, LastTab, and Session Manager --- Taboo doesn't conflict with any of them.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1). 

ColorfulTabs

Fantastic Extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Prior to installing this, I always had trouble quickly seeing which tab was my active tab; as well, I also had trouble quickly scanning all the tabs to see what they all were. I find that choosing the option of ColorFading level "7" along with the option of generating colors by URL makes it extremely easy for me to find the tabs I want. It is lightweight, and it doesn't conflict with other Tab extensions that I like such as LastTab and Taboo. A 10 out of 10.

PDF Download

Fantastic Extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Prior to getting this add-on, I would often click on a hyperlink only to have Firefox grind to a near halt while Acrobat loaded up and a PDF file was downloaded (how was I to realize that the url was going to be pointing to a PDF file). Thanks to this add-on, I now get a nice pop-up window asking me what I want to do. Fantastic extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.2).
