My Reviews

Exif Viewer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works very well, but there's really too much data displayed on the main screen. It would be nice if you could customize what's displayed. For example, all I need are things like date/time, focal length, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and maybe a few other things.

I don't really need to see Components Configuration, Aperture Value (APEX), etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.81). 

googlebar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Image search broken. When you enter search words then click the image search icon (the half white/red canister, whatever that is), it appears to work, but then throws you to google.com with nothing there.

Find Toolbar Tweaks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I disabled this in FF4. WAY too buggy and nearly unusable. Kind of sucks because the FF4 find toolbar is the lame one introduced in FF3, but at least it isn't buggy.

Find Toolbar Tweaks

I'm getting the same problem as Dexter.

Many times a blank, empty FTT bar will open that is non-functional.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

NoScript is very good at what it does -- selectively blocking javascript. I've been using it for a several years. However, there are some serious caveats.

I'm editing my review after another year of use. I'm getting so sick of NoScript. I'm sure it very often blocks scripts I don't want, but how often does it block something truly malicious? The "Temporarily Allow All" button is absolutely critical. I don't know how I ever lived without it. But you still have to click the Temp All button for just about everything. In fact, you have to click the button multiple times for many sites. It may be because a site is drawing scripts from different domains for each page image. Either way, it has become horrendously irritating dealing with NoScript, but I'm still afraid to get rid of it. I may run a test on a linux machine with only AdBlock Plus (which does a wonderful, totally unobtrusive job) to see if I can live without NoScript. I'm getting close to the point of thinking that I can. I'm just so tired of having to dick around with every single page.

I've also taken to allowing all top-level domains. That helps a lot.

Second, I agree that there are way too many updates. One update a week is fine, but NoScript seems to update all daily -- many of these are tiny, incremental fixes. We don't need a new version deployed every single time some little thing is changed. Has anyone had a compromised machine because you were 0.0.0.1 version from the latest?

Overall, it's recommended only for very advanced users. Normal users will find NoScript to be more like NoInternet. Javascript can be used for bad things, but I'm finding that it's used more and more for EVERYTHING now. Does anyone use img tags anymore?

NoScript Security Suite

Good/Bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars

NoScript is very good at what it does -- selectively blocking javascript. I've been using it for a couple years. However, there are some serious caveats.

First, it's true that you will spend a LOT of time white-listing sites. Even when I whitelist every host on a page, there are still some pages that don't work correctly, specifically those with embedded videos. I can't figure out what the problem is.

There REALLY needs to be a hotkey or a status bar icon that can instantly "Allow All Scripts on This Page." I can't tell you how many times I've had to click on the S, then find "Allow All" then click there. It sounds petty and lame, but it can be a hassle.

Second, I agree that there are way too many updates. One update a week is fine, but NoScript seems to update daily -- these are tiny, incremental fixes. We don't need a new version deployed every single time some little thing is changed.

Overall, it's recommended, but only for advanced users. Normal users will find NoScript to be more like NoInternet.
