My Reviews

FXChrome

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 10.4 is excellent! It doesn't show a favicon for a site that doesn't have one, and the addons manager has an slick new font.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.4).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Add-on Update Checker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just thought I should leave some feedback on version 2.0beta2. I find annoying the change in the persistent across 5 urls update notifying popup. Version 2.0beta1 was perfect when the popup went away upon changing the tab.

Response to developer:

Thanks for that option. Upgrading to beta 3.

Adblock Plus

Stop Whining Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To all the people who are whining about the option to allow acceptable ads pass: Web site owners have to live too. Notice I said "option". If its an option, why grumble about it? All it takes is unchecking one little box in the options dialog. Also, "acceptable" ads are being displayed. It's not like the ads are flash ads, etc. I personally am leaving the option unchecked, but to each to his own. Finally, to all the people who say that they will uninstall adblock plus because of this change, I say, really? You're going to uninstall the most thorough adblocker around just because of an optional change? Doesn't make any sense to me. Just my 2¢.

YouTube High Definition

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great with YouTube's old interface, but not with the new one. Please fix.

Update: Works fine now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Multiple Tab Handler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon. I use it for selecting multiple tabs and then bookmarking them to a folder. I echo the reviewer below who said it would be nice to have the option to bookmark the tabs into an already existing folder. That would be a great feature. ^5

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2011092901). 

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I use this addon more and more I keep finding great ways to use it. One of the ways I use this addon is the feature to subscribe rss feeds. It's really handy to have a alert popup whenever the rss feed is updated. Everything about this addon is great. The interface is excellently designed, and the functionality is limitless.

FXChrome

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme is by far the best Chrome emulating theme for Firefox. What I find amazing is that the developer of this theme constantly updates it to look exactly like the latest Chrome build. I compared Firefox (with this theme) to the latest version of Chrome. The result is that this theme is almost pixel perfect: http://i56.tinypic.com/20pxb8n.png
Note: To always find the latest version of this theme, check out the Version Information tab below, and select the "See complete version history" link.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.1.1). 

New tab with homepage

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon works like it should, but I'm confused. Why create this addon when there are many addons that have this function already, and some that offer more? To name a few: New Tab Homepage, My Homepage, and numerous tab utility addons. Also, this is basically a carbon copy of the first two addons I mentioned.

Easy App Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Even though this addon is small, it is one of the best I've come across. I always pin numerous tabs, so this addon is a timesaver. Thanks to the developer.

Quick Translator

New Update is Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new update available in the support group works perfectly. It might have fixed a couple of other bugs too.

Fast Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

^^Everyone, please look at the description above for the update.

Translate This!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After using this addon for a couple firefox sessions, I have noticed a couple major bugs:
1) The "Translate this" item in the right click context menu disappears after browser restart. The only remedy is to install the addon again.
2) Translating text sometimes doesn't work.

Please fix these bugs. I am forced to use another, inferior translator addon.

(Response to Developer)
I am using Firefox 7.01, Windows 7 With 75 addons.

Quick Translator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

People, please don't rate this excellent addon down because it doesn't seem to work. Google is at fault here. They are restricting use of their translation api. That's why this addon, and many of the other translation addons don't work. The only translation addon that I've found that works so far is the Fast Translation addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fast-translation/

Fast Translation

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far this is the only translation addon that survived the changes in google's translation api. Not as easy to work with as some of the other ones, but at least it works:)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.08). 

Translate This!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, this is the best translator I've come across so far. It's great that it's restartless. One thing though, could you possibly make a movable button? I don't like the icon in the status bar.
*Edit* Response to developer
I'm sorry, because it was in the status bar I automatically assumed it couldn't be moved. Thanks for replying.

Bookmark Favicon Changer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon offers a really easy way to change bookmarks and bookmarks folder icons. Kudos to the developer for making it so easy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.55). 

User Agent Switcher

Good, but limited options. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon changes the user agent globally (for every site). If you want to just change the user agent on a site-by-site basis, install the UA Control addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/uacontrol/

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Obviously the author of the addon recognized his mistake. The latest version "1.10" removed the sponsorship option. He should still write a letter of apology to the users though.

Scriptify

Very Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon offers a very simple, easy way to compile userscripts as addons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Fasterfox Lite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon makes alot of advanced about:config changes so you don't have to manually edit them. These changes increase firefox's speed by a large margin. ^5

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.1Lite).
