Google-analize me... Never again! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wauw... I love this addon, indispensable for anyone wanting an ounce of privacy. anno 2011 virtually EVERY site has Cross Links*, and most of them to google! even the most inconspicuous blogs or friend's homepages.
* had to open about 50 sites before i found one without cross links!

Note: Most pages work fine without cross links. The sites (eg. site.com) that need cross links usually have an site.img.com site.media.com etc. domain to store their images or media. Just choose Allow -domain- from the dropdown menu when you click the red flag... And the site works every consecutive time you load it.

I understand website publishers would like statistics on who's visiting their pages and that google provided this service for free. But my golly! Did no-one think of the consequences of google knowing each and every ip adres browsing habit all over the globe? Even when buying an airticket on klm.com or reading newssites, google knows where you are! with request policy, I'm back in control of what companies harvest which sites i visit.

BarTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This a great extention! i always have 10-20 tabs open and my lappy is a 2003 vaio 500MB ram 900MHz CPU... the extention just unloads tabs after a predifined period, and when you select it, it loads it again. loading goes quite fast (as usual in firefox). faster even, because when 20 tabs are open and ff is taking up >500MB a lo of swapping is done to open new pages. in fact, i love the setting opera has (but user friendlyness i dislike) to turn off disk cache and only use memory (and be able to set the size!)

until now did not experience the extention interfering with any of my other extentions:

-colourful tabs
-saveUri (GREAT! works for 3.5.9, just edit the xpi, see saveuri page)
-IE tab 2
-right links (this one is GREAT!)
-tab history (should be standard!)
-tabs open relative
--Flash Quality Changer (not sure it works, but no negative impact)

Right Links

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's GREAT. i almost ALWAYS want to open links in a new tab in the background. I also love 'tabs open relative' to open them next to the tab i'm in. one click in the status bar turns the facility off. GREAT!

InstaClick

super annoying flaw Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Maybe it's because i run firefox 1.5 but... (version:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5)

1: EVERY time firefox starts up i first have to click on a window where the creator of this gadget is trying to make his fame. firefox won't start up unless i click it away.

2: Sometime after browsing and clicking certain type of links with my LEFT mouse (opening it in the same window) the same dreaded message appears, and after that time every link will be opened TWICE (in 2 new tabs) when right clicking on a link, making the new link open twice as slow and taking twice as much resources.

I love the concept of opening directly with a rightclick and was almost addicted to it when this disturbance destroyed my newfound pleasure.
I had to uninstall it......

I don't want to upgrade to v2.0 or 3.0 i tried it, and didn't like it.

tried looking for alternative plugin, but could not find one compatible for 1.5 oh. wait i registered and found outthat way 'Right Links' works! ('Pupuptabcontrol' might be too advanced)
