My Reviews

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Speak Words

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this add-on. Extremely useful and practical. It makes getting to frequently or previously visited pages very fast and easy. I would say that it should be the default behavior in Firefox, but it's so easy to install with no restart that it doesn't really matter either way. Recommended.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Wow, some people need to get with the program. The add-on isn't working for some because Firefox Sync is built in to Firefox 4, and all Firefox versions synced must be updated to version 4. It works fine when used as intended, and whats more it is possible to customize what is synced by going into the about:config.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). 

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Adblock Plus is the best in-browser ad-blocking application available. It prevents ads not just from displaying, but from downloading as well, cleansing the web-browsing experience of annoyances and security/privacy threats. It's easy to subscribe to a filter list, write custom filters and white-list sites and pages, or disable individual filters. Highly recommended.

Mozilla Labs: Contacts

Whoops Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed. Nothing happened. Can't be bothered to figure out why. Uninstalled.

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Instant Preview

Awesomer Bar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it, works just as well as the hidden google chrome feature, except that a browser restart is not required to enable it! However, there is a tiny problem in that website favicon isn't loading for me.I would also like to see the ability to customize the delay, for me it is just a hair too long.

NoScript Security Suite

Reccomended Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must-have for the ultimate secure browsing experience...even with active content completely allowed, NoScript is gonna defeat a lot of the internet attacks out there. And it works great as an annoyance blocker, too, so even if you think only the paranoid are going to use this thing, think again. Not sure why this add-on isn't recommended by Mozilla.

Xmarks Sync

Broken extensions Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to love foxmarks for the simple synch and backup capabilities it offered. The new version doens't do anything more that what it claims (spyware? don't think so) but I don't like many of the new features period. More importantly, it has conflicts with several extensions that I like, such as speed dial and all-in-one sidebar, so it will be disabled until those are fixed.

UPDATE: Tried to downgrade to 2.7.2 and turn of the update. Worked fine, except none of my settings would save. Didn't want to deal with it, so out it goes.

Sad to see a great extension like this go downhill so precipitously.

PhishTank SiteChecker

Fine. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This thing works okay, but doesn't notify you if a site is a suspected phish - one that has been reported, but not yet verified. In these circumstances, the native phish checker in Firefox must be relied upon, making the Phishtank Site checker somewhat redundant, because what it catches, the default filter probably does, too. Additionally, it lacks a professional feel, such as when it displays messages like "Okay, you are going back to the safe zone now".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.9). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Great Extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is simply the best sidebar extension available. It puts everything in one place, so managing history, bookmarks, add ons etc. is extremely easy. I especially like the ability to add tool buttons to the tab and status bar, a feat which has not been successfully accomplished by any other extension. Very cool, and a great space-saving feature. In short, this is a must-have.

BlueSky

Best IE7 Emulator Out There Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think the main purpose for this theme is to provide and IE7 look-alike for users who use Firefox (the superior browser) but prefer the IE7 layout. This theme does a good job of replicating that look. My only complaint is that it looks slightly untidy in certain ways, primarily the behavior of tool bar buttons. Otherwise, I like it. I especially like the fact that the menu bar appears below the navigation, as this is like in IE; since I usually hide it anyway, it's placement isn't a concern. Overall, good work.
