My Reviews

QuickDrag

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Contrary to peoples protestations there is no spyware, adware, or any other questionable tracking going on. This developer has chosen to support its development by the use of advertising. In the current source code it creates an iframe on yahoo.com and youtube.com for the purpose of serving ads. You can't serve ads without being able to track them otherwise no advertiser would pay you. Adblock Plus prevents the ads as well as other possible workarounds. The only scummy thing is failing to disclose the re-enabling of the marketing after 7 days. Personally, I just permanently disabled the advertising and it works great. 3 stars based on ad supported/disclosure failures and buggy image saving code.

Snap Links Plus

Highly Recommended Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Without a doubt one of my favourite addons. It has so many uses - I'd highly recommend it to everyone. That said it's not without its issues.

1) It frequently breaks when Firefox is updated. Some times the fix is as simple as re-installing the addon but sometimes a lengthy wait is required for compatibility to be restored.

2) Formatting of copied links is not fully customizable and "new line" option is not handled properly. Pasting the copied links into a rich text editor works as expected but not into a plain text editor like Notepad.

3) There's a bug in the counting feature where it sometimes reports the correct count +1. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell when this bug is going to crop up so the count can never be relied on for accuracy

4) There can be some interface lag, currently this can cause some issues when making scrolling selections where the box will restart/reposition itself rather than extend.

I'd also like to see it have a couple more features like:

1) Ability to copy selected text in tables. This would come in very handy for copying a row or column of data which Firefox handles rather poorly on its own.

2) Quick Drag features would be a natural addition to this addon

3) Ability to chose between copying the href info and copying the text in the A tags.

4) The ability to select a "modify area" from the context menu and then manipulate the borders of the selection.

All of this said, it's still among my top 5 favourite and most used addons

YesScript

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This could be a great add-on with a few more features. Disabling the ability for select sites to not run JavaScript can be very useful, especially for web developers. Unfortunately, where a scalpel is wanted a kluge is all that's available with this add-on. If the ability to stop specific scripts, especially in-line ones, was added this would be top notch.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea, except if you don't have the (ugly) AdBlock logo enabled you have no way of accessing the "Select element to hide"

This has since been fixed - there was a keyboard shortcut but it conflicted with others so never worked for me.

MinimizeToTray

Great while it worked Rated 3 out of 5 stars

No longer works with version 2.0.0.23

QuickDrag

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Should be included in all future firefox builds!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2.1). 

NoRedirect

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All Rogers Canada internet customers should add this to Firefox. +1 for taking over/adding functionality of defunct RedirectRemover addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.4). 

Stop-or-Reload Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And why isn't this default for FF? Great Job Caio!

Adblock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As of FF3/0.5.3.043 this also fails to block intellitxt style ads.

Adblock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension.

I tried AdBlock Plus, and while it's good it doesn't make it easy to see what elements are blocked or have a nice list of elements so you can look for patterns to add new filters.

The one drawback of this extension as of 0.5.3.043 is that when adding a new filter it is slow to apply. The window hangs while it processes the new filter. It used to be virtually instant.

CustomizeGoogle

Meh Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After installing and checking out the options this extension seems it's no more than a way to advertise non-Google services on every Google page. It's better suited to a Greasemonkey script.
