My Reviews

FormalGnome

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Uncluttered but icons a bit too big - I still like it though.

Tor-Proxy.NET Toolbar

It dont work Not yet rated

No options for control, couldnt access the internet once installed. I have a lot of doubts as to whether this simple addon could actually use the TOR network as The Onion Ring depends on there being gateways that are defined which you access, this plugin could not be an Onion Ring compliant plugin - Use with caution that is if you can make it work

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

YesScript

good but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although this is good, and I have no criticism of the addon whatsoever - people are misconstruing the need for the noscript approach as overkill.
Yesscript will not help if javascript has already run and such rubbish as the zango infected sites have already corrupted your browser. by the time you ban the site it will be too late.
Yes script is good for installing on the machines of those who arent tech savvy enough to make a judgement call on whether to ALLOW a script. A decent list of sites to block will allow those users to roam unencumbered by noscripts nagging and keep them safe.
I believe there is no fight between yes and no script - its horses for courses - you dont run a sprinter on a hurdles course and vice versa -
Great script blocker thank you !

NoScript Security Suite

the best security you can get Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Before noscript was around there were a lot higher incidences of malware on the company networks I help to keep running. It takes very little time to explain to people how to use it and under what circumstances they should whitelist sites. I make a list of sites I want to blacklist and then use the firewall to prevent all access to them - sites that contain whenu and zangocash etc. every now and then I check all the browsers to make sure people arent whitelisting sites that are dangerous or similar to spyware - I hate google-analytics and block all of their stuff - this is the best bit of security a company can have since most intrusion is brought in these days through a browser or via email - there is nothing dodgy or malfunctioning with this software its 100% brilliant

SwitchProxy Tool

lacking some functionality Rated 2 out of 5 stars

There are gaping holes in the functionality of theis software as the preferences button on the switchproxy toolbar does not work properly. Also to switch between individual proxies is a nightmare as I cannot make this happen any other way than to force it under the menu on tools, it should be a double click to rotate through the proxy list
