My Reviews

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Best Google Reader alternative... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

... and possibly better.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.2.1-signed). 

Tab notifier

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have...
I thought that "HTML Desktop Notifications" addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/html-notifications/) was handy but this takes it to a higher level of polishment.

I really hope that Mozilla adds native support for this soon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2.1-signed). 

HTML Desktop Notifications

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely useful... this should be included by default on Firerox. Has Mozilla expressed such desire to the developer of this wonderful addon?

Just for existing and working well it deserves 5 stars. It's not perfect but it's on the right track. It's even better than the official implementation on Chrome/Chromium. For example, if you click on a notification it will switch to the tab that generated it, that's a wonderful and desirable behavior that I still haven't seen on Chrome/Chromium.

Keep the good work...

GMail Checker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is currently the best Gmail notifier for Firefox 4.0. And for that ir receives 4 stars. However I'd love to see something like Google Mail Checker Plus ported to Firefox: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gffjhibehnempbkeheiccaincokdjbfe

Gmail Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice but with the release of version 4.0 it would be great if it was possible to move the extension icon to the Navigation Toolbar so that it was possible to hide and save the space taken by the "Addon-bar".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.4.1-signed). 

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

It rocks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I mainly use Gmail so I use Gmail Manager for that but I have a few other accounts and I decided to test this "Universal" Webmail Extension and yeah it is great ;) I'll sure to check it if I need it later :P

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Winestripe (classic 1.5 look for Firefox 2.0)

Still the best ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Well I like the Firefox 2.0 default theme a lot but I also love 1.x theme. I'm not much into (heavy) theming being that I only use Firefox Default most of the time and sometimes I use Winestripe, Kempelton or even Qute. But I have to say that the only that doesn't make me want to go back to Default it's Winestripe.

Now the downside. I undestrand that this theme should mimic 1.5 look and feel however I think it woul be positive to have a search button next to the search box just like in 2.0 Default. (And I also would like to know how to force the theme to use the new tab style, from 2.0, instead of the old one,from 1.x, just for curiosity)

Another thing ... Your theme is way better than the one that the original author of Winstripe released for 2.0 on his blog. BTW I think that this theme should be name "Winstripe" and not "Winestripe"! Was it some kind of a typo or there was another reason?

Well for all this and looking forward to see this theme reach perfection I'll rate 9 ;)

OpenSearchFox

OpenSearchFox is a must have Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OpenSearchFox it's very useful extension for whoever loves to search the web ;) With this you can add everything you want to search to the Firefox built-in search box.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.0.8).
