My Reviews

Inspect Context

Thanks, very useful tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for updating for FF4. This tool is extremely useful for chrome development.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Tree Style Tab

Still not reviewed by AMO?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm writing this both to say thanks to Piro and to express my strong feeling of disappointment with the fact that this add-on is not reviewed by Mozilla. With 1.5M downloads and being one of the very few vertical tab bar extensions, I expected it to top the search results on relevant keywords - instead I was surprised I had to look through numerous unrelated entries to actually find it. This upsets me and I'd like to see this corrected (in spite of understanding that the editors are under a lot of pressure).
Piro: if you did not submit TST for review, I do encourage you to choose to do so since the current situation is likely to deprive thousands of new users of a very significant 'upgrade of experience' with FF. TST is a mainstay in my add-on rig across nearly all profiles I use for different tasks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.2010073001). 

BarTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this add-on! It is one of the best.

And special thanks for the improvements in Version 2.0! It sure was a lot of work, but it pays off. This version is much better. Unloaded tab titles and icons are now displayed correctly, and boot time has vastly improved. I keep a lot of web sites open and this tools is simply indispensable in making FF quicker and more useful.

Load Tabs Progressively

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this excellent add-on. I keep up to 300 pages open at a time and restarting Firefox is a pain without deferred tab loading. I like your add-on more than BarTab because it displays real website titles even for unload tabs, and is configurable. Compatible with Tree Style Tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Silvermel

One of the very best themes for FF Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of the best, and it's probably the most thorough skin available. The depth of customization is immerse with almost every UI element getting its treatment unlike the majority of the more shallow efforts. I figure it even supplies special toolbar icons for some extensions like scrapbook. This theme is also very stylish and features excellent UI icons and features.
The two important things I didn't like concern tab skinning. First, it treats text color on tabs to a shade of grayish significantly reducing legibility. Second, it doesn't make friends with the vertical tab bar in Tab Kit. Some themes are at the least tolerable when tabs are vertical, but this one is strictly hard wired for horizontal tabs which totally ruins its style when going vertical.
5 stars for the amount of effort, though I hope vertical tabs will be better supported in the coming releases.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1).
