My Reviews

QuickMark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome. Previously I had to double click on bookmark icon, first to bookmark and then to edit it. This add-on makes organizing bookmarks fast and easy.

The only negative I noticed is that it does not work well with "The Fox, Only Better" add-on. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/the-fox-only-better/
You can bookmark but cannot use arrow keys to navigate and shift+enter to create new folder.

I would love to see the option of settings tags too, besides folder, when I press Cmd+D. I rely on tags more than folders to organize my bookmarks. If there is a field in the popup to set tags too it would be very helpful.

**Edit**

I figure Cmd+Enter or Ctrl+Enter is good enough to add and edit tags when creating a bookmark.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.4.1-signed). 

All Tabs Helper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. I was using Pano https://github.com/teramako/Pano but its development has gone stale sometime ago.

This does what Pano does and even more. Search feature is very powerful.

Kudos to Allasso for developing this add-on.

The Fox, Only Better

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome! I Love it.

GrabMyBooks

Love it! A must have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is so rare that I come across a truly outstanding addon. This is one of those. If you like ebooks, own ebook readers then this extension is for you.It can easily be used as replacement of time shifting services like Pocket and Readability.

Newssitter - News Sidebar and Feed Reader | RSS

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is an awesome addon for RSS fans. Good enough to stop using other RSS readers. Best thing is that all data stays secure in your desktop. It is minimal. Interface is clutterless.

The tag cloud, recommendations, and news sources are unqiue features that I haven't seen in other apps. Developer deserves praise for reinventing RSS readers.

I hope developer will keep updating it with new features.

Following are the few quirks that I noticed in it.

1. Once you have read an article, there is no way for you to mark it as read or hide or delete it from the list. So very soon your list gets cluttered with read items that hide unread items. Addon should grey-out read items to differentiate between read and unread items.

2. You cannot organize feeds into folder. Say I subscribed to couple of blogs on Vim Editor. Now I would like to have them in a folder so that I can see all the posts related to Vim with a click.

3. You cannot set feed icon. I can change the title and description of the feed but I cannot change the icon. Having a custom icon for every feed will make it easier and faster to hunt and click.

HN Utility Suite

Helpful for HN visitors Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension works flawlessly and adds button to collapse Hacker News comments. If you visit ycombinator news site, then you should give it a try.

It helped me in transitioning from Chrome to Firefox. Chrome indeed has several extensions that improve your experience at Hacker News. At the time of this writing, Firefox has only one extension, HN Utility Suite, that, offers collapsible comments at HN.

Rahul, you have titled this extension as "Suite". Do you plan to add more features to it? If so, please consider adding keyboard navigation support and custom CSS files.
