My Reviews

Bookmark All

Basically good, needs more features Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well enough but it's kind of lacking in features, and it's annoying that it includes app-tabs in the bookmarks. Desirable features for me would be an option to not include app-tabs, to customize the format of the names it gives the folders (not just the prefix, but for instance with a format string), and to optionally launch a dialog to give the folder a different name (for instance, if you hold ctrl when you click the button).

Also, the button looks too much like the normal favorite button, it would be better if it was different.

Blend In

Does as promised. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised, simply and cleanly changing the operating system reported by your browser. However, if you're looking for anonymity (not sure why else you would use it), this has pretty minimal effect. This is not the fault of the plugin, it's just that the OS doesn't actually convey all that much identifying info since there aren't all that many to choose from. Things like plugins and font lists are far more informative. Also, changing the OS reported by your browser makes a lot of download pages (including Firefox's) more difficult to use because they'll automatically present you with links to the OS they think you're using.

IdentFavIcon

Nice, and simple Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very simple and surprisingly effective solution to an annoying problem.

Firebug

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Completely priceless for web development! This is the ultimate tool for tweaking every last detail of your page to get rid of all those little annoyances that degrade the viewing quality of your site, like unnecessary or missing padding and margins, weird inheritance, etc. If only there such a tool on for IE6!

Really good idea, but it's not working on my wiki. You can try for yourself at http://bmearns.net/wwk/view/WorldWideWiki_talk:Sandbox, not log in required to edit.

Beautiful sink Rated 4 out of 5 stars

That's the best ASCII sink animation I've ever seen.

View Source Chart

Very nice for web-devs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful for web developers trying to figure out why there page looks like crap. Makes good sense of deeply nested elements. Well done.

Server Spy

Fun little gizmo Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice little extension. I can't explain why, but it's fun to check out what server's different sites are running on. Helps me judge their operators. =D
