My Reviews

Simple Adblock

Mostly good, but scripts hang Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I sometimes get popup errors in Firefox saying that a Simple Adblock script (based on the address of the script) has stopped responding, and asking me whether to kill or wait. Other than that, it just works invisibly, no stress for me (and no annoying flashing ads).

TabGroups Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love FF4's new " tab groups" feature, except that the panorama view is really slow with many tabs open. Navigating between groups, even landing on a specific tab in another group, is now easy thanks to this add-on. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.7.3). 

Google Semantics

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The synonyms load after the google search results page, pushing all the links down a bit. I click, then the page moves down, and I find I have to click again, or it opens the wrong link from the search results. If you're more patient or have a lightning speed connection, this mightn't bother you.
I'm uninstalling it, but if I had an option of only calling up synonyms manually (not for every search) I would keep it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3). 

ChatZilla

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Mostly very good. Best I've found, but still a bit of a hunt to find what I need in preferences. Sorry to hear about revkaryn's experience - that's a turn-off.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.85). 

ArchiveFacebook

Freedom! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Love the idea of this extension, but my goal is more subversive – I want something that backs up all my data, media and connections so that I can more easily migrate to another platform when a free and open source alternative becomes available (or at least something less controlling than Facebook). Maybe this is a first step. (erik aronesty: The problem I see with http://www.fbarchive.com is that I don't see who archives the data, or where. That's an even bigger question mark than Facebook itself.)

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

Laconica Bar

Broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loved it up until I upgraded Firefox. Although it's supposed to work with Firefox 3.5, I get "Not Compatible with Firefox 3.5". Thankfully, IdenticaBar is working nicely, and appears almost identical: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11305?src=api
