My Reviews

Ghostery

Indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Never run Firefox without it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.2.1). 

Certificate Patrol

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great job. Heard about Certificate Patrol from Steve Gibson's Security Now podcast. This add-on provides a feature that should be standard in every browser.

Update 07/21/2011

Had to uninstall because of the crazy number of notifications about Google's certificates. I keep several Google products pinned in app tabs and switch between them often. It's literally gotten to the point where I can't even access a single one of them without CP popping up with alerts about Google's wildcard certs and such. I can't even type in a single query in the Firefox search bar (I have the SSL version of Google added there) without getting prompted about the cert for each query.

CP is a great idea, but an add-on that requires you to close the same warning messages repeatedly 30+ times per day is just too much. I'm sure the real issue is Google needing to do a better job of cert management, but there really does need to be some configurability options for this in CP.

FabTabs

Meh... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice idea, but looks awful on Linux (opensuse 11.4, KDE 4.6.1) even using the stock FF4 theme.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4).

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Attractive, simple, and functional!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

Custom Google Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very cool add-on! Makes Google CSE very convenient to use all the time.

Add to Search Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I want! Thanks!

Compact Menu 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is now on my collection list of add-ons that I always install on Firefox. Very simple and effective.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.3). 

Google Bookmarks IncSearch

A "Must-Have" for GB users Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use Google Bookmarks a lot and this is such a helpful Firefox extension!

And I always appreciate a developer who is considerate of people who prefer keyboard shortcuts! I do wish it had some auto-completion capability, but an excellent extension to use together with this one is InFormEnter (http://informenter.mozdev.org/). You can create some default searches in InFormEnter and then use them in the search text field of Google Bookmarks IncSearch page.

This is now on my list of extensions that I always keep installed and enabled. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.5). 

Tab Mix Plus

A Must-have add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been using TMP for years. Never use Firefox without it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.6). 

InFormEnter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used to use the greasemonkey plugin for gmail "Saved Searches" (now broken with the new gmail interface). InFormEnter does an *excellent* job of replacing that plugin and is a great for use with any website with common or heavily used form fields.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5.2).
