Good Add-on for Developers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I dig the plugin, thanks for writing it.

It didn't find chrome on my machine during install, so I had to add it manually. Using Win7 64-bit.

A suggestion - Add a button that will "Open in all." For those of us that test in multiple browsers it would make life a lot easier, and as best I can assume wouldn't be too complicated on the development end.

Thanks again for the add-on.

Thanks, this works great. It works great in Chromium. I am having an issue with passing a second link to FireFox. I keep getting the "FireFox is already running, but is not responding" message. Any thoughts, maybe something I am doing wrong? Thanks again.

Open With is a convenient addon that looks good. To make a future update of this addon really great, it could have: a "Switch Rendering Engines" option and include all four or five of the basic engines; and an "Open In Tab" function for each associated browser--for instance, "Open In Wyzo Tab", that would be terrific!

I love the buttons in the tab bar - they look so sexy. Thanks for making it work with Tabs Mix Plus. And I like the Open With icon - very creative.

To Chris Pike:
No extension can install on its own without you approving it. This is Firefox, not IE. I guess you installed a collection and Open With was included in it. Or someone installed it for you and forgot to mention it.

To Geoff Lankow:
The only issue I've had was that it auto-detected two Chrome browsers (I just have one). Fortunately, I've been able to remove one of the Chrome icons by using the hidden config feature. I entered "chrome.exe" and lucky enough, only one Chrome icon disappeared. I have no idea what the other icon links to (if not chrome.exe) but the process that is eventually running is chrome.exe. I don't really care what's behind this but if you want help with debugging drop me a note at petr.pavel (-at-) pepa (-dot-) info.

Thanks for this extension.

This extension works perfectly. Most of these types of extensions don't work in Linux and although this one doesn't actually claim to work in Linux it certainly does. I use it with Opera, Chrome and Epiphany. (if there was a way to use IE8 and Safari I would but of course those are for Windows)

Accessing this extension Rated 3 out of 5 stars

How can you add this extension as a shortcut on a toolbar?

Works like a charm. Use it on FF portable. All other browser except IE are portable versions, too.
ONE REQUEST, though:
My tab bar is vertical. The buttons are not appearing at the bottom of the tab bar, but about 20% up.
When hovering the mouse over them an area of about 40% of the tab bar is selected (from the bottom to almost the middle height of the screen).
The icons are pushed down to the bottom when plenty of tabs are open, but when not, it looks dead ugly.

One suggestion: Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When you right-click any bookmark, display an option to open whit another browser. It would be very useful.

Excellent add-on...but the mere suggestion of nagware leaves a stench I can't bear.

Like many Americans, I was taught that superior work deserves a tangible reward...not just 'attaboy' and a pat on the back. That's why I always over-tip for great service. And why I've sent money to devs whose work substantially improved my on-line experience. Heck, I've PayPal-ed devs who didn't even ask for it.

But I won't fork over even a nickel for the pathetic, sad-clown extortion of nagware. OK, so most folks aren't like me - they won't contribute? Then take your work and go home. You have time & talent for cute add-ons and even more cutesy nag screens, so why whinge about money? Set up a website and sell your work.

Sure, you'll likely have to add some clever feature(s) to make illegal copies less desirable. But you're a clever sort. Besides, illegal copies are the bane of _all_ products. That's life, man. And the bottom line is this: if people judge your work to be of significant value, they will gladly pay w/o being nagged.

They always do. Ask me how I know. :) If not, then your product needs work. But, jeez, don't beg - go make something better.

Overt touting for donations is unnecessary... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You should go back & re-read your AMO user info which states "I believe software should do exactly what it is supposed to do, and no more." If you really believe that then you would remove the new 'feature' in the latest version which drops down a bar asking for donations. If people think your software is worth it - they will donate of their own volition. If they don't, they won't. If they get badgered about donation they may just delete it & move on.

See my previous reply.

I wouldn't call something which has happened twice so far this year badgering. You may have seen it for the first time, but it's not new, or a feature, it's a polite reminder that someone has done something to make your life easier. If you don't like it, ignore it, or delete it, either is fine by me.

Asking for donations during browser sessions is not cool, man Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The latest v4.1.0 will slide down an alert bar in the top of the browser window, seemingly at random intervals and random pages, asking you to donate to the author. That's pretty shitty and distracting behaviour for a Firefox extension.

Get rid of that crap immediately!

There's nothing random about it.

It occurs once, when the add-on is upgraded. You have the source code, see for yourself (openwith.js, line 275).

If you don't like to be reminded that someone spent hundreds of hours of their free time making something, and then gave it to you FOR NOTHING, you know where the uninstall button is.
