My Reviews

Tab Groups

Productivity enhancer with excellent execution Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the best productivity enhancing extensions out there, that will unfortunately no longer work after legacy extensions are disabled.

If you're like most others you have a zillion tabs open, but do want to get back to them. You mentally organize your tabs into workspaces, but don't want many, many windows cluttering your desktop. This extension is (was) the solution. It offers a great UI for organizing tabs into workspaces that you can recall at any time.

For me, and I'm sure for many others, this extension brings tabbed browsing into alignment with our mental model of how we use the web.

Tab Badge

One of my default addons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Whenever I install Firefox on a new machine, this is one of my default addons. It's simple, doesn't require a restart, and accomplishes just one thing very well.

Another reviewer noted that there is an issue on sites which have their own notifications causing the Firefox tab to blink (e.g. Gmail, Facebook). The result is that the tab badge keeps animating into place over and over again. Once fixed, the addon will again be perfect.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.1-signed). 

TrelloScrum for Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great start at porting TrelloScrum, but unfortunately one has no idea how to reach the developer of this port in order to contribute. There are still a lot of gaps when compared to TrelloScrum, but that's to be expected for such a nascent effort. With some more effort this could grow into a must-have Trello extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Cheevos for Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A wonderful idea for promoting exploration of the browser's features. I will recommend this addon to all my friends that are novice users.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best "save it for later" service, without a doubt. Simple to use, effective, and widely support across mobile and desktop platforms.

Stack Style Tabs

Great extension with one major flaw Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The Ctrl-Tab implementation is great, however, I didn't expect this extension to also hijack Ctrl-PageDown & Ctrl-PageUp.

This design decision seems almost counter-intuitive since now there's no way of going through your tabs in sequence. For this reason I have to give Stack Style Tabs only 3 stars.

A comparable extension that does not modify the Ctrl-PageDown/Up behaviour is LastTab, however that extension is not compatible with Firefox 3 as of this review.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2008042801).
