My Reviews

Characterizer: Japanese and Chinese Reinforcement

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's a fun add-on to use, but it gets hard to read for small words that could go many ways. For example, will/bill/nill/fill/pill/gill would all show up as a character and -ill. Usually it is easy to guess which word it should be, but sometimes it isn't, especially if you have a string of short words. Then the add-on just makes reading more difficult. It would be nice if the add-on had a feature where you could hover over the character to see what letter it was replacing. I would use this add-on much more if I had something like that. I tried installing Rikaichan as one of the other comments suggested, but it's a tedious work-around.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.01). 

Web Reminder

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great concept, but needs work. I wish the fireworks would not pop-up at the BEGINNING of the time cycle, every time I load a webpage from a domain I added for reminder.

For example, if I want 6 minute (360 seconds) reminders so I don't spend too much time on, I get the fireworks EVERY TIME I load a webpage from that domain, which means that I am seeing them every time I switch pages. I am obviously not spending 6 minutes at any particular twitter page. I just want a reminder after I have spent 6 minutes TOTAL at, not at any particular page, and definitely not at the beginning. It's too much. The fireworks lose their effect. I end up ignoring them because I know that 6 minutes didn't actually pass. I makes the "reminder" part useless to me.

Also, I agree with the previous person. Switching from "seconds" to "minutes" would be more useful.

I didn't enable the quotes, so I can't comment on that.

I am disabling this add-on for now, but I will definitely check back in a few months. Your add-on has potential to be great. I want to see your first non-testing release. I bet it will be good.

Excellent plug-in. So incredibly useful for time management, especially for sites that my fingers automatically take me to. I'm a bit obsessive compulsive about checking every post on my friend's list in LiveJournal and my subscription list in Twitter. I just made it so it blocks after 10 minutes, every 4 hours. That's plenty of time.

I wish we had the option to implement a 5-minute (or 1-minute, or 15-minute, or whatever) warning. I know we have the countdown and that's useful, but sometimes I ignore it, especially if I am writing something like a weblog entry. I end up getting blocked just as I am about to post my entry. I end up unblocking the website temporarily to give me time to finish what I was doing. A warning to speed me up would be better. Maybe something like the fireworks in the "Web Reminder" add-on.

Good so far + some suggestions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You should try fixing it so that instead of inverting white/black background/text to black/white, you can choose black/silver. I have found that silver text is much easier on the eyes than white text. Also, it would be nice to find a way to get rid of the light flash when the pages load. Finally, as someone else said, a button to disable the add-on quickly and temporarily would be nice (maybe something on the status bar). Otherwise, I am happy with this add-on. I have been looking for something like this. Thank you so much for working on this! Best of luck and happy developing.
