My Reviews

HTTPS Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Use HTTPS Finder together with HTTPS Everywhere, as recommended, and what will happen is this:
HTTPS Everywhere will arrange to turn your HTTP connections to HTTPS ones, when its offered by the site you are visiting. This covers most popular sites.Some sites however are not included in the list of HTTPS Everywhere. HTTPS Finder finds these sites, as soon as you visit them, and either asks you if you want to connect to them securely, or connects to them automatically (according to your setting). When you do connect to them (and if automatic HTTPS connection is ON), HTTPS Finder also asks if you want to add the site to HTTPS Everywhere's list.

In the beginning I didn't expect there to be many sites NOT covered already by HTTPS, but then I found many: most popular ones inlcude youtube.com, erowid.org, etc.

OK.
One bug and one suggestion:

* When I went to Linkedin.com first time after installing HTTPS Finder and HTTPS Finder's automatic HTTPS connection was ON, and it asked me "you wanna make a rule for HTTPS Everywhere" and I chose "yes", somehow loops were created where I get stuck between "Do you want to add this to HTTPS Everywhere" and Linkedin trying to sing me in and redirect me in my account. To circumvent this the only thing I can do is turn off both HTTPS Finder and HTTPS Everywhere, restart my browser and try again.

* I would prefer if I could add a HTTPS rule to HTTPS Everywhere even if "automatically connect to HTTPS" was NOT turned on in HTTPS Finder.

Overall, great addon.

Flagfox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really liked having Flagfox on my status bar.
In FF4 the status bar is gone, but there's a new bar, the Add-on Bar.
Can't you put Flagfox there? It would be awesome.

Black Stratini

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried out a number of dark themes over time, and a number of times I've said "oh that's nice" after installing one. But this time was different... I am stupefied by how beautiful it make my browser look. For the first time I review a theme to show my appreciation. Thanks.

Make Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great exactly what I needed.
One suggestion would be: For those who like me want only one type of link to be created (in my case HTML), and delete the other ones, it would be nice if the "Make Link" button in the context menu would automatically create the link you want without needing the click one more time in order to choose the obvious option.
And thanks for making this.

Copy as HTML Link

"Make Link" has much more options yet it's still very simple Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I just discovered there's an addon that does the job and provides much more functionality, including the things I previously asked for from the developer of this addon.
It's called Make Link.

Fangs Screen Reader Emulator

Well done Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this great tool. The developer seems to have done careful research into the subject before making this. I highly recommend it to website developers interested in website accessibility.

Copy as HTML Link

Great but the programmer seems not to have worked on it for a while Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is still one of my favourite and most useful addons...though it seems that it is no longer been updated.

As a request to Justin or whoever has the skills to continue his idea, it would be GREAT to have the option to add more stuff to the created HTML link code....stuff like:

* target="_blank"
* class="external" (or whatever, just to link to a different CSS styling)
* title="blah blah" (customisable, so we could put stuff like "This link will open in a new window" or whatever)
* etc

I find it strange that this idea was not carried out in greater extends. Maybe not many people discovered this addon or thought of the possibility of its existence? If I could program I would work on it but I don't, so all I can do is make this request.


EDIT:
OSXBeta, I don't have the same problem with the "copy as HTML" entry, and I have been using this addon for a very long time, up until now with FF 3.6.13. (Windows XP if it makes difference)

Header Spy

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Interesting.
Though on my computer, it cuts off a part of the information (there is never enough room for it to show all the text in its window). Could you fix that? I am using Windows XP and FF 3.6.13 if it helps.

Secure Google Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice.
I recommend changing the icon that's on the toolbar to distinguish it from Google unencrypted 's icon.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon protects you against various forms of attacks. For people who want to be protected by the countless exploit attempts when browing the web, the first thing to do, in my opinion, should be to (get Firefox if they don't use it already and) install this addon.

Html Validator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon if you are trying to keep your HTML codes valid and tidy. It works also for your offline HTML pages, which means you can make your corrections before you publish your pages. Also as far as I undertstand it this means that it does not intrude on your privacy like Total Validator (which sends the URLs somewhere for inspection before giving you the results). It has two systems of validation, one is the one used by W3C (SGML Parsel) and the other is HTML Tidy, which as far as I understand is unique to this addon and it gives you different corrections than W3C.

Copy as HTML Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is genious, thanks


Oh if you could add the option to prepare the links with target="_blank" (i.e. to open in new tabs), that would be cool!


EDIT: And maybe even to prepare it with something like class="external" (with "external" being modifiable if possible)- for those making links with icons indicating that they are external (like Wikipedia).

In any case this is one of the neatest addons I've installed!

Text Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works very good.
After a while of using I also find it essential.

Link Status

Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For those concerned with their browsing privacy:

Websites using a certain method that exploits the fact that the links that you visited have a different color, can see the most popular of the websites that you visit (like http://startpanic.com/ shows you).

To avoid this you can go to about:config, find layout.css.visited_links_enabled and double-click it to change to "false". The disadvantage is that you can no longer distinguish the links that you've already visited. So here is where this addon comes in, which seems to work via a different way than the one that websites can exploit.

This is the deal as I understand it (and someone who knows more can correct me if I'm wrong). I know there are also other advantages of this addon, but I send this message for those who like me are concerned mainly with privacy/security.

Review: It works great. I would appreciate also if you could make an additional way of viewing the link status messages, instead of showing them in the status bar. I usually have the status bar disabled and I had to enable only for this addon.

Thanks

Ghostery

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi.

I have two questions:

1) Does one one of you have any alternative(s) to this addon? i.e. one that blocks hidden ad trackers?

2) Can a person who works for "Better Privacy" answer me clearly this question: Does Better Privacy log IP addresses of users of Ghostery?

Thanks.

Oh my review: This is functionally a good addon but maybe not worth it if the IP addresses of users are logged in someone's (whoever the someone is) database. As we all know, IP addresses in combination with the time of browsing can be tracked back to the computer user.

Hide Chrome

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works for Firefox version 3.5.8, but I want to make a suggestion to include somewhere the "close window" and the "minimize window" buttons that are normally found on the right side of the windows bar. Maybe add a really small version of the windows chrome on top, from where the browser can be handled. It sais here that this extension "adds also two new buttons - Close Application and Minimize" but I can't find such buttons.

Also it would be good to provide a toolbar button from which to be able to replace the Control+F2 keys. It sais here that this is provided, but I can't find it.

I think this tool is good. I know that some people use Google Chrome over Firefox because of the larger area it provides, so this improves things.

Ixquick HTTPS Privacy Search Engine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good review by rwizard.
I wanted to add my 5 stars for this addon and I wonder how come so many firefox users look for internet privacy yet so few downloads and reviews for this addon.
Of course you can't be sure that this engine does what it claims but I searched around and it seems to be true.
