My Reviews

Account Colors

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

+ The good part:
As for me, the add-on works and is helps making sure which account you use.
+ The bad part:
You only get to choose background colours from a palette of fade colours and for me it was difficult to find a few which were both distinguishable and not confusing (no, I'm not colour-blind but orange and red would look too alarming for me, leaves green-ish and blue-ish).
+ The really bad part:
The add-on makes Thunderbird display "deactivated" text in the background colour (i.e. invisible), this can be mitigated _partly_ by forcing the use of the set-up foreground colour. This means when you read an email, you will no longer see the sender, subject etc. in the thread pane. Also, button texts disappear when you hover with the mouse pointer. This took all the fun out of using the add-on for me.
Note: I am using Linux, the issue(s) may be plattform-specific-

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3). 

OxyBird2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am not a huge fan of the Oxygen icons, but all in all this is a very sleek theme. As do some of the others, I miss the menu icons, but could not find any lack or flaw in functionality.

Ghostery

Nice, but no blocking :-( Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the plugin - obviously it is a nice thing to at least know someone is trying to secretly track your behaviour. However, only showing that you are being tracked is not a great improvement since the only option to avoid it would be not to use the site at all. Please see whether you can add a blocking feature - you might use some of the Adblock Plus source code for this (hail thee, open source :-).

Mouse Gestures Redox

Back in black and ready for FF3! Thanks a lot, Jochen, the plugin is and will always be great :o)

Mouse Gestures Redox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think I might rightfully claim that I use the Optimoz Gestures since shortly after they surfaced (in the old days of the Phoenix browser... ;-). However it's a pity that they don't seem to be maintained anymore :-(
Jochen: Bitte, bitte, bitte auf Firefox 3 heben :oD
