My Reviews

DEEPNET

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A simpler, easy-to-grasp (short) description will make this add-on appeal to the masses. On a casual look through a listing of thousands of add-ons, the user shouldn't need to figure out what the term "shadow" signifies or how it will be useful.

In the longer description you may want to include how to use this add-on and how it will benefit the end-user. Possibly a point-wise guide will be much appreciated.

I see the availability of the demo video which is a good thing. However you may also want to present this video in the browser the first time after someone installs the add-on (if you don't already do that). This ensures that users start using it and accept as a part of their browsing experience than let it be around and uninstall it later.

I hope my comments help your add-on go public. All the best. (Neutral stars since I haven't used your add-on yet.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0). 

MR Tech Toolkit

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I guess most of the feedback is not coming from the correct audience... If this addon is tagged "Developer Tools" You'll here more from my kind of users.

I can't live without this now... being an addon-author.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.3.3). 

Basic Brushed

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ah... one mac theme that looks great while is functional and solid state.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

image fetcher

Emulates IE function Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great tool for those migrating from IE. Makes it easy to save images just with a single click. Could use configuration options for appearance/placement etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1). 

IdentFavIcon

Great Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Literally a great extension to browser functionality. Web 2.0 is about icons. This extension makes it intuitive and more informative about the site that one is viewing. Simply put a great enhancement and value-add.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1). 

HiDiMuIt

Useful and Sensible addition Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This sure does take away quite some burden off the users eyes and the menus too. There's no point of showing disabled menu items in the context menu and thus this addon makes sure the context menu stays trimmed and purposeful.

However hiding any disabled items does change the position of the menuitems following it and this can at times cause confusion if one has gotten used to the location of menuitems.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Hide Chrome

Nicely Done Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The addon works great. However it to a certain extent duplicates the functionality of the F11 button (which has same and better functionality -- e.g. the auto hide tab bar )

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Combine Stop-Reload Buttons

Sensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some out-of-the-box thinking. Good utility, works and intuitive.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Blank Your Monitor + Easy Reading

Environment Friendly Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent and productive concept and implementation. The addon description should specifically mention that this works for CRTs only. On TFT monitors this does not save energy. Additionally some stats should also be provided on authors homepage. The options should include the background color settings also.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

A Million Words

Needs Improvement Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The idea behind the addon "A Million Words" is a good one however the addon has several shortcomings.
1) The addon could use some preliminary documentation to guide the users where to start.
2) The options are missing and are very difficult to locate.
3) The only place where you can configure this extension is from the statusbar icon which does not have any tooltip or label.
4) Last but not the least the addon did not work for me.

Needs thorough testing. Not ready for public release.

JSView

Great for Developers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon for developers.
Has great value in terms of ease of accessibility, almost second to DOM inspector.
The new features through the context menu require extra user education and have a non-standard way of access them.
Thanks for the update. I missed JSView on FF 3 but not anymore.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Yoono: Twitter Facebook LinkedIn YouTube

Steep learning curve Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It must be a good extension after all. But I fail to realise how poorly it is documented.
1) When i reopened my browser, one of my tabs was redirected to the yoono homepage. You could have opened a new tab instead, i don't mind. If careless i'd not have noticed it and would have lost that tab's history.
2) for such a lengthy advertisement of a video you could have a smaller video telling me how to use the extension.
3) Use of jargons- What is 'buzz'? I know that a door bell buzzer buzzes. what else does? Yoono? Nowhere on the documentation page did i find what it meant.
The extension is currently disabled as i don't know how to use it. and the toolbar decreases the viewable page area.

I guess, KISS - Keep It Short and Simple. I'm myself an extension author so hopefully you won't doubt my grasping power.
