In a little more detail...

My Reviews

Pont Saint-Louis

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ooh. Look at all the pretty birdies...

Nuri

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The flashing! Oh gods, the flashing! Make it stop! *Everything* flashing... completely... different... non-harmonic... rates... Urgh! I think I'm going to have a seiz...

Fasterfox Lite

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Argh! As if the snake oil performance tweaking of Fasterfox wasn't bad enough, this is just the same thing but with user tracking added for monitization.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.8Lite). 

Simple Adblock

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Urgh. AdBlock Plus with some tracking garbage added to it. If you want ABP without the whitelisting, just get ABP and turn off the whitelisting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Flag India

Spiffy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for providing a wonderfully stylized flag for this marvelous country rather than something that would fly over an embassy. This theme is beautiful.

Adblock Plus

Keeps getting better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't upgrade often, but I did because I heard of the new "allow unobtrusive advertisements" feature. I block ads mainly because so many of them are distracting, insulting, or otherwise offensive, and I've always hated the idea of blocking unobtrusive text ads, especially since they're what keep so many good sites alive. I'm excited about the possibility that this feature will push more sites and ad networks to publish the kind of unobtrusive ads that I don't mind seeing in my browser.

Keep up the good work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This tool should be banned from AMO, or at least give developers a means to opt out. We already know when our versions don't work with given versions of Firefox. That's why we mark them as incompatible. And dozens or hundreds of reports confirming this (along with the resulting unhappy users who now seem to expect to be able to run add-ons on incompatible apps) are not useful.

Reporting that an add-on is compatible where it's marked otherwise might be reasonable, but the current behavior simply must go.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

XUL/Migemo

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I can't speak for the end product, but the code is appallingly complex for the described feature set. It's not suitable for my own purposes, and I don't think I would trust it for daily use.

Tab Control

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice, but it screws up tab order on session restore. I would also like it to prevent links from opening in new tabs (argh!).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4).
