My Reviews

Policeman

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always wanted to use request-policy but it was too annoying. So I settled for Noscript but took shortcuts and allowed certain things to load on all sites. Now, with Policeman, I have quick control over my privacy and do not need to take shortcuts.

Also, the developer is quick to fix issues. Only yesterday I emailed him about a compatibility problem and today, already, he has a new version with working solution.

So thank you for making my browsing so much more enjoyable and safe. This is one of those addons that redefines browsing experience!

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great people! Just remove and re-add your calendars.

This release is great, it brings the long coveted TASKS support. I've waited for this so long, now I can finally make use of it.

Thank you so much for this update, and people, do some research before leaving bad reviews!

TrackerBlock

broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

firefox won't launch with this enabled.

Must safemode, remove plugin, then it works. 0/10, looks great though on the screenshots

New Add-on Bar

Slimmer than the other one Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The other addon bar extension was a bit too fat. This one is just right.

HabuL

Barely functional but great idea Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately submitting an entire folder is not a good idea. Services like SpamCop, for example, only accept emails which are a maximum of two days old. I've not found an option to use this addon in order to submit emails one by one, should such an option be added it will receive a five star review. Until then this app is not usable.

Great, but have to use old version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Too bad it isn't working with PaleMoon at newest versions. Already downgraded twice due to accidental update.

Looks great, lighter icons would be nice.

Tab Overflow Stacking

Cool but not my expectation Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Well this is cool but I was looking for opera like tab stacking, not overflow management. Spent a few minutes trying to "stack" tabs.

Thank you for fixing the doing of a Google mole who sabotaged Firefox by removing logical shortcuts.

Switch to Tab no more

Works good, thanks for fixing the mistake of the lamer who tried to fix something that wasn't broken forcing us to use this workaround.

Metro

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very pretty running on an xp machine with themes off... I don't have a "bookmarks" bar and it looks great configed like this.

DictionarySearch (Official Version)

Great, highly configurable, and simple to use context menu search. Time saver!

It's not just for dictionary, its for google and wikipedia and whatever else you can come up with.
