Gnosis has potential, but needs serious tweaks Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I will confess to some minor frustrations with Gnosis. \r\n\r\n1) Whenever I opened up a page, it seemed like it took forever for all the relevant material to be \"highlighted.\" This especially happened on Wikipedia pages.\r\n\r\n2) Whenever I would inadvertently mouse over a highlighted word, the popup balloon would appear. \r\n\r\nI think a couple beneficial tweaks might be:\r\n\r\nA) A sign-in account that, by way of your imported bookmarks detects your browsing history/favorites--especially linked in with StumbleUpon or Delicious and therefore only highlights words associated with the links that you put into your Gnosis account.\r\n\r\n2) With the sign-in account, I think Gnosis should also give you an alert to when you\'ve reached a new page and ask, via a pop-up menu, what you would like Gnosis to do--like so:\r\n\r\n\"You have reached a page that is not similar to your browsing patterns. What would you like Gnosis to do?\r\n\r\n1. Highlight words on this page! It\'s what I\'m looking for.\r\n\r\n2. Place it in my Gnosis bookmark account for later review.\r\n\r\n3. Don\'t do anything. It\'s not what I\'m looking for.\r\n\r\nAlso, the ability to disable those popups balloons would be a handy thing. I find them annoying at times, Hence the tweaks I suggested above.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.20071214).
