My Reviews

Search Cloudlet for Google, Yahoo and Twitter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of those brilliant "Why didn't someone think of this a few years earlier?" add-ons. I have set my Google search results default to 50, so in regular Google search and news, you get the "big picture" real quickly. This is one application where tag clouds make sense, and the ability to add terms to your query (click in the left part of the word) or remove them (click in the right half) from said cloud is the most intuitive way to search.

Great work, guys!

LinkSidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This used to be one of my favorite add-ons. If you have a page with hundreds of potentially interesting links, it will help you drill down to the relevant stuff. Unfortunately, as of now, it doesn't work in FF 3.6, not even when overriding compatibility.

Also, I second firefeast's ideas: It should be possible to only list links ...
- from a selected section of the current page
- of a certain target file type.

And being able to sort/filter/drill down by the domain/site of the link targets (using a tree-style display) would be great, too.

With these features and FF 3.6 compatibility added, LinkSidebar would be a power-user's dream.

Pretty please? :)

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

Cooliris 3D Wall

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I consider Cooliris to be one of the very few must-have add-ins (the others being Hyperwords and Firebug, but YMMV). Admittedly, it's resource intensive (my 2007 MacBook's fans howled in desperation whenever I launched a Cooliris session on an external Full HD screen...), but if you have a fast machine with a decent graphics card and a fast connection, it literally changes the way you experience images on the web. It's as close to the "Minority Report" idea of computing as possible.

I just don't understand that the Cooliris team takes so long to update their flagship product for the FF 3.6 beta.The beta (which I am using as my main browser) has been out since October 30, and it would be really nice to have Cooliris back...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.11.5).
