My Reviews

Deadpool Emblem

Dark Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The general dark background is nice on its own. The logo adds a nice touch that makes it entertaining, yet it is not distracting.

Unshamed Orange

Nicely done Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This light theme has an intricate pattern that could make elements, such as text, to recognize. However the image is keeps its colors within a small range of dark tones and hue. This makes a beautiful complex design that is not distracting.

Soft Denim

Nice dress for Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A pleasing non-distracting design. Almost a cool relaxing flat blue sky, but with a tight pattern that gives texture so it is not boring and makes it approachable. This is for perfect for those of us who prefer to wear jeans most of the time.

Black Shine

Great Complement! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It fits beautifully in my toolbox and causes no distraction. I combined this light theme my own complete theme and it looks terrific! It could not have a more appropriate name because that is what it added to my setting.

To Bring A Snow

Soft Winter Spirit Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Beautiful artwork in a soft design does not affect the buttons or the text. It brings a calm feeling especially for those in the east coast in of North America where the first winter storm just came as the theme was published.

Persona Switcher

Excellent: It Extends Themes Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on allows to combine full (heavy-weigth) themes with personas (light-weight themes). This is done by selecting a persona through its button without changing the theme in the Add-ons page. This makes it an excellent customization tool.

Stylish

Great extension, good support. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Keeping up with the changes in Firefox is a challenge to developers and maintaining compatibility with Nightly can easily become an issue. It can take some time to adjust to changes in Nightly. But a solution to the latest incompatibility with Nightly is already in the project area so a release with it should arrive soon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

S3.Google Translator

Fantastic Support! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is currently the best translator tool listed at AMO. When there was a problem with it, the solution came expedited. The author definitively does a fine job keeping it current.

S3.Google Translator

It used to be very good, it should be fixed soon. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I preferred another extension because it had a smaller interface, but it is not listed anymore at A.M.O. This was the best alternative I found. But I upgraded Firefox to version 43 "smooth scrolling" stopped working properly until I disabled this extension. Reading recent reviews made me realize an update is due. I have to wait and see who this extension impacts Firefox's performance after it is updated.

µBlock

This Injects Ads? No! It's a malady that affects all ad blockers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The problem cited by bensabah is shared by any(?) ad-blocking software that uses the Easylist! What bensabah found is likely to be an anti-ad-blocking software strategy, and that should be reported to those maintaining the Easylist.
Websites can find strategies to force you to see ads or restrict their contents otherwise, the same way that users may want to block the ads.
This add-on is OK and includes no white-list.

A Gateway to a Set of Customizations of Everything On Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As described, it provides tools for customizing not only web pages, but the browser (Firefox) itself. The site userstyles.org has many styles already made that can make the way you experience Firefox to the way you like. For instance, I found a great style to change the default homepage to have a custom background and show no logo (my background is the picture of a beautiful Fox). I also customized my new tab page to show the page tiles with a 16x9 aspect instead of 4x3. I found styles that will hide ads on some of my frequently visited web pages and make them more tidy. I also made one of my own for such purpose.
I disagree criley's argument for stating the Firefox version is inferior to the Chrome version. A single style document (css) can have many sections to affect different URLs in different ways. In the Chrome version the sections for different URLs are separated into different sub-documents. Indeed, if you write a style with the Chrome version, you will need to convert the style into the Firefox single document format before publishing it. That other implementation ads a level of abstraction, but little is gained from it. Yet there is one point were the Chrome implementation is better: Error checking in the Chrome version is better. But that version lacks the automatic word completion you get in the Firefox version. I think the best version is whichever matches the browser you like, and Firefox definitively renders my web pages more beautiful than the alternatives.

uBlock Origin

uBlock Origin turns 1.0.0.0! Congratulations! (this is for the release candidate) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried Adblock Plus for about one (1) minute. I realized immediately it did half of what I expected and could mess up some web pages. Adblock Edge was excellent for a while, but it followed the development of Adblock Plus too closely. For good reason its developer decided to tell its users to migrate to uBlock.* But when I tried uBlock it lacked of the control I wanted. I found that and more in uBlock Origin. For instance, I can easily disable cosmetic filtering for individual web sites.** Yet there is more, uBlockₒ has improved going beyond rules for filtering web pages to incorporate privacy controls such as "Disable hyperlink auditing/beacon." By combining it with some 3rd-party filter lists, I think of it as my first line of defence against malware.
I was expecting the next release to be 0.9.9.4. But it has been a year since gorhill first released uBlock 0.1.0.0. So uBlockₒ has grown to become 1.0.0.0 (release candidate zero the twelfth day of July of the year two thousand fifteen, a.c.)!
________
*This happened about the time when the development of uBlock was split in two branches. Now it is clear adstomper tells to migrate to uBlockₒ.
**I know it can be done with Adblock Plus filter rules, but it is so much simpler with uBlockₒ.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9.3).

Kudos! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 1.72.1-signed fixed the problem introduced in version 1.71. I think everyone can update now to the latest version. There is no need to prevent automatic updates unless you are more paranoid than I ;) I keep a top score for this very useful extension. I hope people who gave it a low score for the snafu with v 1.71 will now upgrade their rating, I always though this add-on deserves a good score.
