My Reviews

ArchiveFacebook

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm glad this was developed. I wonder if it's still needed, as I recently noticed that facebook has a feature that allows one to download all one's content. I suspect it's not in a practically usable format...

SUGGESTION:
I noticed that there is a HUGE amount of redundant data in ArchiveFB/data. I saved a couple GIGABYTES of space by replacing each set of identical files (using a script) with one copy of the file, hardlinked to all the locations where the identical copies were. ArchiveFacebook should do this hardlinking itself, or modify the HTML to point to single files instead of many identical copies of each.

Example: several thousand copies of the same 300KB .CSS file.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.0.2.1-signed). 

RAMBack

WFM Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Didn't impact memory usage much, but seemed to drop CPU usage, perhaps coincidentally.

Certificate Watch

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent idea! I removed or disabled many of the certs from my system long ago that I expected I'd never want rely on, e.g. for small countries I didn't trust.

With this add-on, I should be able to identify the handful of certs I rely on and disable the rest. Bravo! Only...

WHERE IS THE SOURCE? It was released under the MPL, so where's the source? Not on a mozilla or simos.info site, AFAICT! I guess it's new and hope this will be addressed shortly. -1 star; I intend to post a 5 -star review if this is addressed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8).

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

2 stars cuz it works.

Uninstalled; I don't want to share my goals with Amazon.com (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/43_Things)

I'm betting the high download count is a result of clickfraud - if anyone 'll take my bet.
