Seven

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While evaluating a theme, watch how much "page file usage", in "Windows Task Manager", it increases. The lower the "page file usage" is kept, the faster the entire computer system, including browsing. The theme "7" is impressive how little it uses and it is clean and bright.

Monitor "page file usage" by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, select "Performance" tab and view the bottom graph, "Page File Usage History". In the "Options" menu at the top, select "Always On Top". Using that graph will greatly help in choosing well behaved and lean applications.

"7" earns all 7 STARS, if they were available!

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

WOT's process is decidedly unscientific without the discipline to provide reliable results. It has proven to promote malicious damage to traffic performance of thousands of websites by permitting individuals to spam negative reviews. This is unfortunate because the Internet is desperate for such a service as seen by the popularity of WOT. Such security ranking services must install guards against abuses that render their results useless. WOT would easily earn 5 stars if it wasn't for the unreliability issue, but as it is, reliability is all important in the business of Internet surfing security - ONE STAR -

It is suggested that WOT simply remove the opportunity for negative reviews. This is because WOT must rely on casual and agenda based input. Otherwise, WOT's gradient four level scale should require an increasing mount of input to impact rankings as they become more negative.

Google Apps Mail Watcher

ARCANE INSTRUCTIONS Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Google Apps Mail Watcher, assumes that the majority of their subscribers know what is meant by, mail domain names or what should go after a/. Life is too short to fiddle with time saving apps requiring further research. One star for wasting my time.

Zequr Password & Bookmark Manager

grabs your email then charges Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You'll be required to give personal info, full name, year of birth, email, just to find out at the end, that you must pay some yearly fee if u wish to use this supposed free service on another computer/device. This is misleading and so I give it thumbs down, removed it and now preparing to report as SPAM, all the unsolicited emails that will now be targeted at me due to Zequr's backhanded personal info gathering technique. Not good!

Gmail Watcher

Thanks for this much needed tool. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I truly love this simple add-on. It keeps me aware of new mail. I've had the more full featured email managers, but Gmail Watcher is the ticket for what I need. For anyone who misses the description, middle clicking checks mail. I didn't understand that at first, but it's important to know. Thanks for this much needed tool.

Universal Search & IE 8 Accelerator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR ! This extension does the perfect job for what is needed. Highlight any text and a tidy little popup has 3 choices, copy, search text with default search engine or an extensive menu to select other search engines. The options for this nifty utility is clean and simple. I love it and recommend it. I have tried other such extensions of which I've un-installed.
