My Reviews

YourOnlineChoices Persistence Plugin

use noscript and requestpolicy instead Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried this out to see if it was trustworthy. no: the advertising industry has not earned my trust. there is no real choice in this add-on, it seems to be an all-or nothing proposition that preserve existing cookies. they still track you, you just do not see it.

Better solution: prevent requests from reaching the ad servers all together with requestpolicy extension, and noscript to prevent consumer hostile code from running in your browser

Awesome Screenshot Plus - Capture, Annotate & More

Nothing Awesome in an Extension that Gives User's Privacy Away to Google Rated 1 out of 5 stars

fully support access2godzilla's analysis. I have nothing against opt-in monetization as long as it is properly disclosed in the privacy policy. I am outraged at the undisclosed (and not optional) communication with third-party ad servers (google-analytics is in my view a third-party ad server, because the information is being used to track users for marketing and advertising purposes).

Sneaky Privacy Leak Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

RequestPolicy

Must Have Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Most webpages today make third-party requests. Many of these requests are not in the user's best interest. Curb them. Don't let third parties invite themselves into your interaction with a web page. RequestPolicy prevents such third-party calls unless you deem them to be beneficial to you. Together with NoScript, it makes your web experience safer, faster, and lighter.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.24). 

NoScript Security Suite

Must Have Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without NoScript the web is a dangerous place.

NoScript (and RequestPolicy) should be part of the default distribution of any web-browser that calls itself a user-agent as opposed to a third-party-agent diverting the user's computing resources for questionable purposes.

NoScript prevents Firefox from getting entangled in a deadly web of consumer-hostile code. It's your computer, you decide what runs on it. NoScript helps you getting back ownership of your computing resources.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1).
