This is a very convenient add-on: Previously I was in the habit of loading TextAloud to have a page or section read to me; then I'd highlight some text and press a hot-key combination. This is so much easier! And it's a brilliant user-conscious coding feature that allows the user to download the same text as an MP3 in a single step, for uses of which I can think of many.
Did you sense a "but..." coming? It's just a small one.
I'd really like to have my text read to me, optionally, in the TTS voice(s) to which I'm accustomed — one of the two high-quality ones that I use exclusively. Would that pose a programming problem, or is it feasible?
Congrats on a very neat, non-imposing, perfectly useful, and thoughtful extension. It really is nice work.

Light Lines Blue looks very sharp in its lilttle preview rectangle... but it really goes electric when installed! The top of my browser looks spectacular — very pleasing and sophisticated. Nice work! Thank-you.

I appreciate an add-on that will block annoying sites that appear during redirects or as pop-ups (just as I love getting site ratings from WOT right next to a URL, saving me a lot of bad experiences).
I just don't understand why BlockSite doesn't simply (?) provide an icon that will add the focused tab or window to the $#|t list with just a click. It seems like the long way home to copy the URL of the offending window -- or worse, right-click for page info to get the hidden URL -- then open a menu, open Add-Ons, open BlockSite options, paste in the address, then back your way out and finally close the nuisance page.
See how Video DownloadHelper does everything in one click; it would be tremendous if BlockSite would grab and record the URL, and banish the window all with a click! Easier said than done, maybe?
