My Reviews

FavLoc

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an awesome little utility, that eliminates all the browsing for folders that you have to do when saving files from the internet. I use gmail and my 15 FavLocs make it really easy to save files directly the the appropriate directory.

There is one feature that I'd love to see added: the ability to rename the FavLocs that you've already created. That would be really useful. Thanks

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this module. Mostly, I love it because it's incredibly powerful - letting you add searches from any site, and it's got a slick interface.

The thing that I hate most however is that it changes the default Google search results. When running a google search through hW, the results page is "custom", which removes the google links at the top which let you switch between web search, image search, videos, etc. It also prevents google from making some of it's cooler top results, like if you search for an address, the top result will be a link to Google Maps for that address. In order to get around this, I just have to change the url string from "google.com/custom?q___" to "google.com/search?q___" but that's a pain in the butt.

The other issue I have is more of a bug than a design flaw ... it sometimes seems to capture my keyboard input at VERY inopportune times. There have been times when I'm entering text in a webpage and then I select the text to edit, and hW interrupts the action.

Anyway ... Definitely worth checking out and I look forward to seeing it grow.

IE NetRenderer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful module for web developers who are not working on Windows.

Would be perfect if if could take a larger screenshot that showed more than just what is "above the fold", but that's not the fault of the extension ... that's an issue with NetRenderer

Screengrab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Amazing!!! This plugin solves 90% of my screen capture needs.

It even does full page captures which is a feature that is hard to find.

Totally rocks!

Palette Grabber

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome tool for designers and web developers. I use it in conjunction with colorzilla to quickly add new palettes.

It seems like it pulls colors out of css values.

It would be awesome if the tool could be expanded to sample colors from images too (maybe sort by the most popular colors).
