My Reviews


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent ! I was about to develop such an extension as i had many times the need for it. This one does the job nicely, saving me time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7). 

NoScript Security Suite

Doesn't anyone see the good in this ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To value a bit my comment, i'm the developer of Video DownloadHelper , sharing with Wladimir and Giorgio the top most ranks in extension popularity for almost two years.

Finally, what happened was good !

Let's face it, when you develop an extension, your users give you the keys of their house (come on, it's just an image). While AMO provides some guidance, there is a natural temptation to go border line. The current event helped a lot, in a general way, to make this line more visible to all add-on developers.

Ok, Giorgio crossed the border. He got caught. People yelled at him. Many. He fixed the mistake. He apologized. People still yelling.

Has he been punished enough ? From a quick look at the previous 300 comments, i think so.

Can we now still trust Giorgio ? I think he is now the most trustworthy extension developer, as at least, he knows if he does that kind of mistake again, he will be over forever, given his more-than-clear apologies: http://hackademix.net/2009/05/04/dear-adblock-plus-and-noscript-users-dear-mozilla-community/

Please keep in mind this guy has provided you for a long time with a valuable tool that did not cost you anything.

I think this flame should end now.

Very handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

That's a very convenient tool. It easily deserves a 5/5.

Usefulness is nice :)

Leak Monitor

I hate this extension ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

... that forces you to fix those memory leak things when developing on mozilla ;)

good job though !
