My Reviews

UnPlug

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great extension - needs a toolbar icon that matches those of FF 4 though

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.047.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Smart location (smart text)

good, but compatibility problems with Status-4-Evar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i love this extension!
it doesn't play entirely well with Status-4-Evar, regardless of which version. 2011.03.16.22 seems to work the best, but there's still problems (i also tried the latest beta). for instance, the progress meter will only show at the bottom of the address bar - you can't change it to fill, nor can the color be changed.

without Status-4-Evar, smart text works beautifully and is, imo, the best and easiest way to navigate links. period. very well thought out piece of work. hopefully the 2 devs can get together and make both work seamlessly with each other

Status-4-Evar

good - maybe a bit of polishing needed? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i'm using it along with the excellent "smart text" ext., and although there's settings in the latter to work with Status-4-Evar, there are compatibility problems

however, by itself, this is a wonderful extension!

CookieSafe

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

not FF4 compatible

Cookie Monster

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great cookie manager, but needs an option to display a TOOL BAR BUTTON!!

DuckDuckGo (HTTPS / SSL)

goodbye google! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

DuckDuckGo seems to be a very good search engine with some nice features. good customization options. can be used with or without JS and cookies and can provide the same functionality if going without. unlike the privacy wrecking, data harvesting google, DDG has good privacy policy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20101112). 

Cookie Monster

thanks... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...for adding the option to not force a refresh on permission change!

-- would like to see a FF4x complaint toolbar button that can be added to the navigation bar

FloatNotes

great utility! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

like this allot, but the toolbar icon menu needs to be expanded (IMO) to include 'create/delete/hide notes' so one can dump the web page context menu items if so desired.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2). 

HeaderControl

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

still broken - see next post

Smart location (smart text)

Better then Locationbar2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

makes navigating up or along the path of an address in the address bar very simple. the description is kind of misleading - read the description for Locationbar2, then install this one because it works much better. example of each step possible when navigating up:

http://www.sub.root.com/dir/search?keyword=smart >>> http://www.sub.root.com/dir/search >>> http://www.sub.root.com/dir/ >>> http://www.sub.root.com/ >>> http://www.root.com/
-----------------
the 3 '...' at the far right of the address bar could be changed IMO, perhaps to an icon.
also i don't understand what the "fission background" option does.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.0). 

SearchWP

project abandoned Rated 4 out of 5 stars

looks like it's official - i just emailed the dev and unless someone takes this over development will cease

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.2).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

SearchWP

Great little extension!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

combined with SearchBox Sync, this makes for a pretty good alternative to the google toolbar

i hope the dev decides to continue this project - right now it seems like it's in limbo. to drop him a note, go here:
http://searchwp.googlecode.com/

HeaderControl

referrer control broken Rated 4 out of 5 stars

if you manage the referrer by default and set it to the root of the site, but ignore intra-site referrers, the external referring site is sent as the referrer.
can test here:
http://www.google.com/search?q=%22what%27s+my+user+agent%22+site%3Awhatsmyuseragent.com&ie=UTF-8

Batch Disable

needs better functionality Rated 2 out of 5 stars

would be much better if you could SHIFT/CTRL + select multiple extensions to enable/disable instead of having to enable or disable ALL extensions

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Web Search Pro

missing some key features Rated 3 out of 5 stars

really nice idea! ... but i think it would be much better with the following...

* clickable search words so you can click the terms in the search bar to find them on the page
* multi-colored word highlighting in both the page and the search bar

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.3). 

Navigate Up

needs a little tweak Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it works this way:
http://sub.domain.com/dir/
http://domain.com/

and i think it really should work this way:
http://sub.domain.com/dir/
http://sub.domain.com/
http://domain.com/

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

Locationbar²

linkify address segments needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

nice ext., but the way it segments the address could use some work - something like this way...

http://hi.you.com/dir/page.php?content=something_here
http://hi.you.com/dir/page.php
http://hi.you.com/dir/
http://hi.you.com/
http://you.com/

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Embedded Objects

missing statusbar icon Rated 2 out of 5 stars

ff 3.6.4
organize status bar (OSB) ext. installed
win nt5

couldn't get the status bar icon to show - would prefer option for a toolbar icon anyway

shame - seems like a nice, simple ext.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). 

Tab Utilities

fine little utility Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Loving this extension - does everything i want it to do without allot of overhead. The developer is responsive to bug reports and has been very active in TU's development. While the 1.0 build is still in the RC stage, i'm seeing fresh builds a couple times a week on average. 5-star potential for sure once the 1.0 release hits!

HeaderControl

nice, but needs toolbar button Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i like that if gives you a little finer grain control that RefControl, and it's nice to see a bit more of a comprehensive privacy package in a single extension, eliminating the need for 2 others in my case.

it REALLY should have a toolbar button though, maybe L-click to toggle state and R-click drop-down to config individual items
