In a little more detail...

I am the developer of Biobar, a bioinformatics search project for firefox. I developed biobar out of my own frustration in having to bookmark a 100 different sites for searching data from various sources. I am a structural biologist by training and do some programming/scripting on the side.

Add-ons I've created

Biobar

A power browsing toolbar for the Life Sciences (Biology/Bioinformatics/Medicine). Easily search and retrieve data from over 45 bioinformatics services from the comfort of the toolbar. Links to bioinformatics tools and resources.

My Reviews

Quick Preference Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like this button, it saves me many clicks to set and unset when moving from office to home networks. Good work! A minor bug maybe but when the Prefs menu is on the top bar, it is empty (MacOsX Lion FF12.0)

URL Shrink Easy

Very Useful Indeed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The URL shrink easy extension installed seamlessly on a Linux and platform without any issue. It is easy to use and very intuitive to get used to getting the shrunken URLs for various links both on the addressbar and within a HTML page. The preferences pane is uncluttered and easy to understand and there is also a right click on the favicon field for quick access to the settings. As this is not restricted to just tinyURL makes it even more useful.
All in all, a very useful and nifty extension and I shall be using this quite often in the course of my daily work. Well done!
