A misleading description Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension was one of my favorites on Mac some time ago but, besides the fact that I don't feel the need for it anymore now that we have the Quartz PDF Plugin, I also do not like the way it has been developed further; for example, the description does not tell that the new web-to-PDF feature uses their private server for the conversion, and this is definitely unfair, as it has serious drawbacks:
1) you need to be online to do the conversion;
2) any data shown on the page being saved (passwords, credit card numbers, personal data...) is going from you to their server and back, which is never a good thing;
3) session information is lost, e.g. if I have Firefox showing the Google home page when logged in with my Google account, and I save it as PDF, the resulting PDF shows a "logged out" Google home page, i.e. the default page any anonymous visitor sees, which is different from the page I was seeing and trying to save.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.0).
