My Reviews

Telephone Number Detection

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well so far. I think the number detection could be made better but a good start.

My only real gripe is to do with integration in Google Contacts. When browsing my contacts there Google "helpfully" encloses any phone numbers in a link to Google Hangouts. If I hover over such a number I see a pop up for this plugin but as soon as I move my mouse to try and click the popup, it disappears.

In an ideal world this popup would work and not disappear. In an even more ideal world the Google Hangouts URL would be completely replaced with the relevant URL handler. In a world so ideal it hurts, right clicking on the link would also present the option (as would right clicking on any selected text that vaguely resembles a number, even if it doesn't match the length rules etc).

Extra Folder Columns

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great little plugin.

I made a few adjustments to it recently to add support for renaming newsgroups to more friendly names!

Hope it gets merged into the official package, but in the mean time people can see my change via the above link :)

Hope some people fine it useful.
