Not actually convinced by the new set of flag icons in Flagfox 5.0.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have to admit that I'm a little bit disappointed by the new version of this extension, mainly by the new set of flag icons.

As a vexillology amateur, I certainly understand the choice of images which use real ratios, but as a software user, I am not actually convinced by the use of images of varying sizes in the browser interface (frequent changes in the size of flag is not very effective)

Maybe future versions could be envisaged with an option which would allow to use some alternative sets of flags (the previous version had such an option, although limited to two sets).

Please, consider this review as constructive: I still think all features granted by this extension are very useful (this issue about flags is cosmetic, nay anecdotal, and my usage will not be affected: it is more a matter of comfort and consistency of interface).

I haven't tested any of Flagfox's other features, but having a little flag icon next to the site is nice to look at. Thank you!

The first time I saw the new flags, I thought it was ugly because it's different. But after reading your blog and forum posts, I understand it. They really look like real flags, without the effect I'm used to. It'll take some time for me to get used to the new flags but thanks for your effort!

Flag size ok, colors looks dark Rated 4 out of 5 stars

HI,
Thanks for the nice addon, like big size flag icons. But the colors looks a bit dark, hope you'll make the icons more beautiful in next version. Can you please add Region & City info in popup info?

sorry, forum has spam IP blocking

Sorry, if you've never even registered to the forum then you're probably getting caught in our spam filters. We've had a problem of spammers showing up and advertizing counterfeit handbags and the like, so various IPs have been blocked over the years. Email me with your IP (or just the first 3 octets) and we'll fix the blocklist for you.

I'm glad the border fix is good for you. Some people requested a darker border under darker themes, so 5.0.1 does that.

Значки флагов стали некрасивыми :( Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Дополнение-то конечно полезное, но в пятой версии значки флагов стали просто ужасными, какие то плоские, не выразительные, да ещё и с рамкой....
Нельзя ли их заменить на более эстетичные?
Пока вынужден откатится на версию 4.2.17 :(

Dear Dave G please consider back on old flags Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The old flags icons is so much beautiful and have right size. Believe me it is. New is so big and ugly. Please try make other version with option for use new or old flags. Please don't consider this like a negative critic, but one sugestion. Unfortunately I did donwgrade for 4.2.17 and I'll wait for a new V5 with option for use old flags icons.

Great job Dev, new flags are awesome!!
Classic ones (not fantasy!) :D

* seeing users give 1 star because of just new flags style is ridiculous...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.0). 

Thanks! :)

Yeah, the number of people that are shocked at what flags really look like is astounding me. I'm having to explain to people that the 250+ nations of the world have not color coordinated and size coordinated their flags. Canada's flag is bright red because it actually is bright red, no matter how many times you've seen it with the same red as America's flag. Some flags are wider than others because some flags really are wider than others. People are really used to squished stylized flags. I think I hurt some peoples' world views. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a really great add-on and I love the new flags. They are easier to see at a glance and look nice.

The developer has put a lot of time and effort into creating this great extension, yet people are being really rude and ungrateful. A little "thank you" wouldn't go astray.

Keep up the good work, Developer!

I dislike these new monstrous flags, too. In my eyes there was no need to change them.
Where has the option to choose the preferred flag set gone???

New Update is Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Old FlagFox was great, new Flagfox 5.0 is just about perfect!

Thanks for the hard work Dave G! Beer tokens on the way!

PS. Some of us oldies really appreciate the flags at a glance.
PPS. BTW, Dave G gives up his time and money to bring you a great FREE add-on. I am betting most of the unbelievably rude moaners are the ones who contributed "zip" to this mans project. I am sure if you asked nicely for a old/new option it may happen. Manners cost nothing......like your add-on's you ungrateful twerps.

thanks!

Thanks for the kind words. :)

Good to hear the new flags are easier on your eyes. Making them easier to discern at a glance was one of my main goals. So many people complained about difficulty telling apart the old ones. It took me a while to be able to make a full set that worked, but I think it turned out quite nicely.

I know there are a few rude critics, but the positive feedback I've been getting vastly outweighs them. You don't have to argue with people in reviews here, please. ;)

I've been using this addon for some time and never would change anything to the flags, at least there should be an option to use "small" or "new" flags

Another disapointed fan because of the new flags Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm a big fan from the beginning of Flagfox. For the features and also the flags design (I was a big fan of the "alternate icons" style).

But I really don't like the new style, even with a width reduction :-(
