My Reviews

Quick Translator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good and useful.

4.5 stars. The only reason it isn't 5 stars is that it seems clumsy to change the language if 'autodetect' fails.

I am in Vietnam, and need translation frequently. However, Vietnamese is often written online without the diacritic marks and the translator is often fooled because it looks like a European language and selects something else.

If there could be a a small button, menu etc to quickly bring up the manual language selection it would be ideal.

PS The translation is often off the mark, but that isn't this add-ons fault!!

NoScript Security Suite

It's a lot of work... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have used NoScript for quite a while and don't doubt its abilities. However, I have just disabled it as it was just TOO restrictive. Particularly with the few sites where even the 'allow all' didn't work. You have to allow scripts globally, reload etc etc. Pain.

I am not a tech-head and the threat seems a little remote for the angst (using fear as a motivator is big on the Web, but can you convince me otherwise in this case?). One has to balance the threat against the hassle for themselves.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.6).
