Prostetnic highlighter

Still first in it's class ... but could be even better! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Prostetnic highlighter is a colourful sparkling little gem which in my view is first in its class --but could be made even better.

I have used this addon every day since it first appeared --many, many times per day actually. It is one of the few: 'I cannot do effective work without it' addons for anyone who wants to be able to see what was memorable and important on 1 or a thousand webpages even years later. And it is PRIVATE too!

Here is what i respectfully suggest to the author to make his/her creation even more valuable than it is presently:

Allow instant colour changes of newly highlighted text, eg, by making the current rectangular 'apply highlight box' into a box of 3 or 4 click-able areas. Say, par exemple, one area each for yellow, one for hot pink and one for green.

Consider the advanced utility and speed of this scheme: It offers the immediate rapid application of different highlight colours to sequential phrases , words or sentences each of which which commands a different colour emphasis

This suggested change would save a huge number of wasted clicks of going .back and forth to the present colour selection box and then back again to the newly changed colour application box and vice versa ad nauseum.

I hope that the author finds these suggestion both desirable and convenient to execute.

In any event, I once again give praise to the author of Prostetnic highlighter and another 5 stars for an excellent creation.

Great utility! especially for power user/researchers! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Amazing that this wonderfully good addon has been discovered by so few people! I use it every day many times and would be lost without it.

Unfortunately some of its former functionality seems to be lost --only temporarily I hope. it was once possible to set your ratings and view previous ones right in the properties box of a bookmark.

Even with its present limitation I give 5 stars to the author for an extremely useful very valuable product.

Prostetnic highlighter

Exceedingly useful, great tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Compliments to the developer, n8chz, for all the good work to produce a greatly improved, very valuable extension. I use it many times per day and could not do without it. As promised earlier, here are the 10 well deserved stars: ★★★★★ ★★★★★

Prostetnic highlighter

Great idea and design concept ...but Rated 2 out of 5 stars

it still does not work properly. There is no highlight persistence yet, even on simple page reload nor on closing tab and/or restarting FF 18 and 19.02

The basic design concept of storing highlights in SQL database is very sound and private. Though this extension is not really functional yet I give the author HUGE credit for the work so far and that which I hope will very soon be forthcoming to make this completely operational. When it reaches that point I would give the author 10 stars if that were possible because this would be an exceedingly valuable research tool. I cannot wait for the opportunity to award those stars, because I could have used Prostetnic Highlighter literally thousands of times just in this first half of March alone.
