My Reviews

TabGroups Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is AMAZINGLY useful addon.
It combines three things I've always found rather useless:
- Tab menu dropdown. Takes far too long to find the tab you are looking for after a while when there's no visual aid.
- The Panorama mode. Simply too unoptimized (aka SLOW) and requires me to stop what I'm doing for too long to do even the simplest things
- Naming tabgroups. It's too tedious and doesn't offer anything significant (why would I need to name a group when I already have a visual representation of every tab in Panorama mode?)

And then you combined everything seamlessly (middle click to close especially!) and suddenly, dare I say it, everything just works. It even has a keyboard shortcut...

RSS Icon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works well, thank you.

I don't understand why this was removed without adding an alternative. Tons of people use RSS!

Scriptish

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is certainly impressive. Good luck with this project!

Some scripts don't seem to work for now, but that's understandable. I'm keeping an eye on this.

QuickWiki

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please add more languages. Otherwise works fine now as a Minefield-compatible Hyperwords alternative.

Metro

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Such a nice theme. Please make it work with Tree Style Tabs, it's the only reason I'm not using this great theme.

Very useful. Thank you for making this.

I love it!

Omnibar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Overall this is a good, useful extension that I have been using for a while.

I do wish the bug that only shows you results every second letter would be fixed, though.

Tab Scope

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What a great extension! It seems like every extension you make turns out amazing.

I agree with an option to left click on a preview to go to it instead of clicking the tab.

I would also love the ability to hide the controls (back, forward, refresh etc.) of each preview because I don't have any use for them.

Tab Catalog

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great job. Much better than Firefox Showcase - faster, better looking and best of all - lighter.

Customization is a little lacking though. In particular I'd like to be able to edit the titlebars (font size, remove the icon next to the text, etc.). They are pretty ugly right now and I had to turn them off.

FireGestures

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

An excellent plug-in, but I cannot map it to right click - it simply won't work. It works fine with left or middle click, but I kind of need those, heh.

2nd Classic

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't wait to have this theme on 3.0 - it's just so great.

autoHideStatusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says it does, and does it well. Good job.

This is _really_ nice and feels right at theme with white OS themes. Thank you for the taking the time to make this!

Organize Search Engines

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is an extremely useful add-on, like the rest of your add-ons. They improved my searching speed and efficiency so much I don't think I can live without them anymore.

This one still needs a few more fixes. I agree with most of the fixes suggested, but another request is an option of putting folders in the root of the search engine context menu - NOT inside "Organized Search Engines" - the way it is now I have to wait for the Organized Search Engines submenu to open. This is unnecessary and slows me down.

Add to Search Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What a great extension. Thank you so much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

App Tabs

Feature request? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Possible feature request: an option to have the app tabs (or even better, certain tabs of your choice) always 'in view' (that is, can't be scrolled off the screen if you have a lot of tabs open)

App Tabs

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice extension, I used it to pin a Tabs Showcase tab that can't be closed (among other things) and it feels very useful and natural. Thanks for making this!

Downloads in Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good addon, I love addons that do only what they say they do, with minimal bloat.

Just one thing I would like fixed - pressing Ctrl+J while viewing the tab (attempts to) close Firefox. A more sensible implementation would have been to close the tab and return to the last viewed tab.

Add to Search Bar

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful add-on. It works perfectly, and enhances searching dramatically.
