My Reviews

LastPass Password Manager

Not working! LastPass discourages use of this plugin, promotes Dolphin Rated 2 out of 5 stars

About 6 months ago the LastPass plugin for Firefox stopped working on my Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. Whenever I log in, it says I have the wrong credentials even though I know they're right. I found on LastPass' documentation that they actually discourage use of Firefox with their service. "LastPass has an extension available for Firefox Mobile on Android OS devices. While it is functional, we recommend using our Dolphin HD extension or LastPass app for use on the Android rather than Firefox Mobile due to Firefox’s limited integration." https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/upgrading-to-premium/lastpass-for-android/firefox-mobile/

Please improve the integration! Firefox is my favorite browser and LastPass is my favorite password manager-- can't we all just get along?

InstantFox Quick Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This reproduces my favorite feature of Chrome and does it one better. I love being able to capture search queries from the sites I visit most and then invoke them with a keystroke. It makes searching so fast! Also, unlike Chrome, you can export your search strings and import them on your other browsers.

Blog Better! - Writing Helper by Zemanta

Awesome tool for recommending relevant links, tags, and related stories! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Zemanta does a great job of recommending relevant tags, links, and images that make my blog posts richer and more informative for my readers. My favorite feature nowadays is the Related Articles-- I love how Zemanta finds other articles online on the same subject matter I write about. This helps enmesh my blog posts in larger online conversations and helps me network with like-minded bloggers who care about these topics too. I've found them valuable as a reader, too, helping me broaden my understanding of the topics I write about.

StumbleUpon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, as much for the easy stumbling but for the ability to email sites to people (it keeps a menu of all the email addresses I've sent to). It also is great for driving traffic to my site.
