My Reviews

Old Default Image Style

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was so aggravated when Firefox updated and changed the way linked images are displayed. I hunted up and down trying to find a setting to let me change the styling of the image viewer. There wasn't any information anywhere.

I happened to find this add-on after hunting around for a good while. This add-on does exactly what it's intended to, it displays images in a white background that is justified to the right like most every other browser out there.

This answered everything I was looking for. I have absolutely no complaints about this plug-in at all. If you're confused why images are centered with a black background and you want to get rid of it, download and install this add-on, you won't be sorry!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Greasemonkey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was always skeptical of Greasemonkey until I found an actual need for it. Now I love it.

I used to think there wasn't a need for me to use Greasemonkey. Many friends over the years would tell me about scripts they would run in their browser and how much better their browsing experience was due to Greasemonkey. I would try it when a new version would come out here and there. I never found it compelling enough to keep it.

Fast forward to today. I cannot imagine not using it! I wish I would have been less stubborn so I could have used this wonderful addon to it's full potential.

The ability to run user scripts is phenomenal. One of my favorite scripts is for YouTube. The Yays!-script will allow you to pause videos, automatically resize the width, and play them in HD just by loading the page. This is all possible due to Greasemonkey's ability to run custom tailored scripts with ease.

There are so many scripts out there, I'm sure if you're looking to do something with your web browser that it doesn't already do, there's probably a script out there to do said "something".

I really think you should give Greasemonkey a shot, it's super lightweight and easy to run. User-scripts are super easy to install and uninstall.

There's definitely something for everyone!

FxIF

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FxIF is one of the best EXIF displaying add-ons that there is. I have come to rely on this addon due to the simple fact of me being a photo nerd. I love delving deep into the EXIF data of photos just to see what settings and equipment people are using for their photographs.

The convenience of FxIF is exceptional. I don't have to download any images to get the info. Just right click on an image and "view FxiF" and the dialog will pop up with all of the attached EXIF data.

If you're looking to view EXIF data around the web, this is definitely the add-on to go for. It's much more aesthetically pleasing than some of the other options out there. Give it a try!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.5).
