My Reviews

Dark Background and Light Text

This. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works amazingly well across all kinds of sites, with easy selection of different modes. So far, I've always found one that works. This has replaced Stylish, another "night mode" add-on I can't remember the name of, and a clunky greasemonkey script, each used to address the different situations ("every random site", "complex heavily-used email etc site", "site that nothing else works on"). This is in the short list of things that make the web suck much less.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5). 

Google Image Lookup

Also works great via context menu. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not a fan of drag-and-drop for anything, so I wasn't too sure about this one at first, but it works fine in context menu mode, and you can disable the popup target altogether. Don't really like the chrome icon, but it doesn't matter much.

Karma Blocker

Works exactly the way it says it does. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've started using this again, and I'm leaving another review to point out that the add-on works perfectly, and that the one-star reviews are being left soley by people who don't RTFM. On the other hand, I can't seem to point the sync field to a local file using the file:// scheme... is this not possible?

(Also, contrary to a recent review, enabling/disabling on the fly works just fine.)

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Thank you. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This review is based on exactly one use of the add-on, but I'm giving it full stars because I was able to go from discovering my need for this add-on, to finding it, to using it successfully in under a minute, just by using the interface it provides via context menu. With the time I saved, I'm writing this review. Thanks for making this.

SelectAndDefineAnyDictionaryWebsite

A good start, but very limited versatility. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was curious if this could be a replacement for Advanced URL Builder, which doesn't seem to be actively developed in recent years. Unfortunately, being limited to only two URLs (changing them seems to require a restart) diminishes the versatility, and the results were always opened in panels, whether the option was checked in preferences or not. Still, this could be a useful complement to Advanced URL Builder, if there are just a couple of sites that you would like to open in a panel instead of a tab. Also, the keyboard shortcuts are nice.

HttpFox

Almost perfect. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The only snag I encountered was that the highlighting colors only change the background color, which renders white text (in the case of a light-on-dark user interface) invisible.

Edit: Almost forgot - the Shift-F2 shortcut also collides with the shortcut for Developer Toolbar.

Silent Block

Works great, but usability could be better. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Attempting to migrate to this from Karma Blocker (which I love) because of the Android compatibility. The basic functionality is there, but it's somewhat painful to have to restart the browser just to reload the regex file, or even to enable/disable the extension. Still, it's great to have something that works on Android. Thanks.

QrCodeR

Five stars now. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With the improvements in 0.7, this is now far and away my favorite QR code generator. Thanks!

QrCodeR

Nice... works well, and fast. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The only thing that I would like to see in a future version is maybe a tooltip or other way of displaying the encoded URL, which is a nice way of reassuring yourself that you grabbed what you intended to before bothering to scan with a phone. Also, the borders in 0.6.3 still appear in the UI color instead of white for me, although this didn't keep it from working in my case.

Karma Blocker

Useful out-of-the-box. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I loved the idea of this add-on, and knew it would have the flexibility to do great things, but I was expecting the price for that flexibility to be a long session of creating rules. In reality, the default set is so effective that I still haven't gotten around to tweaking it very much, mostly just the weightings. Nice job!

CookieFast

Convenient. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One thing that I've always wanted in an extension like this is the ability to clear all cookies *except* for the current page domain. Handy for not being logged out of an email session... not sure if it could be implemented in this extension, though.
