My Reviews

StumbleUpon

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This toolbar has the ability to move to several locations, it never stays where you put it however. Every time I open my browser it has moved back to the original default location. I love being able to discover new sites but to me functionality is so important. If it is an aggravation to use then I'm not going to use it. That's is what this add on falls into, an aggravation. It is highly overrated here because of this.

New Tab Tools

Been looking for this Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I have been looking for. It does a great job of taking care of the new tab page.

I find that I use this add on quite a bit. It's really handy for those website that are constantly trying to get your email address.

I like this add on but I wish it didn't take up a whole tool bar. I think it could be an icon that loads in the address bar just as easily. (Response to Developer below) While it is true that you can customize the address bar and add the elements. There are five of them and my browser space is too valuable to add 5 new icons.

Google Disconnect

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add on blocks a lot of flash videos that you may want to see. You can however click the icon in the awesome bar and reload the page to get that element to show. I have found however that there are times when a video will be blocked and there will be no icon in the bar. This can be very frustrating to say the least.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't do without this add on. If you spend time downloading security add ons then this should but one of the first.

Cleanest Addon Manager

Until you use it, you didn't know you needed it.

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this add on BUT, many of the ratings of websites are skewed by the people who rate them. It is very helpful none the less.

Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The internet is a real pain without Adblock. Run this for a month or two and then disable it. I think you will find that it is invaluable.

FastestFox - Browse Faster

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very good add on. I especially like when I can see multiple pages just from a scroll.

Ghostery

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on continues to get better all the time. This is one I definitely would not do without. It's a good thing some people care about privacy.
