My Reviews

Download Statusbar

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Should be in Firefox core.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.6.4). 

British English Dictionary

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works a-okay for me

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.19). 

Clipmarks

Great concept but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's a fantastic concept- 'clip' items of interest and intrigue from around the web- either for reference or for sharing ala stumble etc.

However, the 'back-end' bit- the Clipmarks pages for reviewing your clips, managing, sorting, sifting are just bloated and awful.

Overladen with useless features, it's too hard to get to what you want to do- for example the button's drop down menu doesn't have the brain numbingly obvious 'see my clips' button.

I know that _somewhere_ in the internet there is a nice simple list of the items I've clipped and tagged from web pages- but I'll be damned if I can find it.

It needs a lot of slimming down and scrapping of extra useless 'features' before this is anything but time wasting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2). 

Firebug

Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There's always more functionality hidden, waiting to be discovered- try adding console.log to scripts whilst debugging to track variables and objects.

Unbeatable development tool.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.05). 

Download Statusbar

Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This should be built into firefox.

Only minor annoyance is the bar jumping into the currently active window- even when it's a pop-up.

But this extension is ACE!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.3). 

Google Calendar Quick Add

Causes hang Not yet rated

Don't know if this is colliding with another plugin, but entering text and pressing enters causes firefox to hang.

ActiveInbox for Gmail

Good Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice work, but needs a snappy machine to make Gmail bearable (my work PC takes 5 seconds between showing gmail and applying GTD)- and the gimmicky timer thing- what's that about? And how do I turn it off?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.33).

(How) does it work? Not yet rated

I'm not sure what this extension does, because whatever it is, it doesn't seem to work.
I get buggy alert messages, I try to create a new 'Project' (whatever that might be) and the dialogue freezes.

I thought extensions were reviewed before being put on Mozilla's site - or even vaguely tested- but evidently not.
