Does exactly what it should do, no more and no less. For such add-ons, it is perfection.
I have seen this addon some time ago and decided to test it. Oh, what a lucky day. I used to lose almost entire days in addictive sites that I not even liked. Geez, there are those sites where I just visit to become angrier! Now I've put them all in the black list and I have time again!
I believed I would just cheat and remove the sites from the blacklist, but it does not happen. Sometimes it is just a reflex, a knee-jerk Control+T and quick lookup in the history to access some leech. Leechblock give me the time to reflect about it.
It is great too because I can even add exceptions to the rules, which is important for some sites (e.g. I do not want to see my Twitter timeline but I'd like to share some link, so I enable the sharing URL).
Summing up: IT WORKS! (Or at least worked to me). Try it!
I installed this extension to open new tabs close to the current one only but now I cannot live without it. There is an option to anything I wanted! I would just like one improvement: it would be perfect to be abble to fix a tab as an app in the context of a tab group, so I could add a bunch of apps to a tab group, another set of apps to another tab group etc. and each app would appear only in its corresponding tab group.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.3.1).
I loved the idea. Actually, some time ago, I used to use Epiphany, among other things, to have this behavior. Unfortunately, this addon is not working well, however: it ends up messing the tab history. It can be useful yet, but not more than it. I just lost my patience and, relutanctly, am removing it from my browser. If it get repaired, I would love to know.
I find it amazing how the Firefox developers find ways of make me close all my tabs accidentally. Each damn version has a new way to do it, each new way is very difficult to disable. One ingenuous person can wonder: why not just configure it in about:config to ask for confirmation? Well, it may or may not work, depending of the version or the command.
For example, in Firefox 12 at Ubuntu, Firefox will not ask for confirmation when you press Control+Shift+W. BTW, Control+Shift+W is outrageously close to Control+Shift+E, the tab groups shortcut that I use frantically. And it happens every freaking damn dumb crazy version: a new, dispensable way of closing Firefox is added and does not respect my previous configuration; or a old way of closing Firefox just decides to ignore my configuration etc. Just look at any Firefox bugreport about this problem: someone posted it in 2003, people point that the problem returned in 2006, and then in 2010 and so on...
But you now what? It seems to be past, because this extension works like a charm. I just disabled the irritating Control+Shift+W shortcut - or, actually, I replaced it by some other, harder one. This is in fact a possible improvement to the extension: to allow the user to disable a shortcut.
No problem, however: just the way it works now is more than sufficient to alleviate the pain Firefox developers insist on inflict on us with their despicable shortcuts and bugs. Thanks!
