My Reviews

Memory Profiler

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This really needs to be able to profile all tabs, not just one at a time. I would like to use it to weed out evil tabs!!!

Tab Metrics

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Phenomenal potential here for this extension, but I want to give you some constructive criticism here. First I commend you for putting together such a useful extension, however it is the very opposite of usable and user-friendly. Here are my suggestions:

The method used for reporting CPU usage per tab is downright terrible. First of all, you shouldn't have to click on a tab. Secondly, even if you only needed to hover over one instead of click-hover-wait, you still shouldn't even display this data under the tab's tooltips in the first place. If anywhere, you should have just opted to report this data in the status bar.

However, accessing the data on an individual tab level like that is just not going to work for most people, who like me will end up wanting to use this app to see a detailed analysis of metrics for ALL TABS at the same time, for comparison purposes.

This extension most likely will be used for several tabs, maybe even hundreds (as is my case most of the time), and accessing such information in the current fashion is extremely tedious and utterly cumbersome. It's just not going to work well at all!!

I think there needs to be a full UI, either in a pop-up window, or in a new tab, that details, for ALL TABS in one spot, the exact CPU usage, and memory too! (as this extension is called "Tab Metrics", not simply "Tab CPU Usage"). It's a must that this show data for ALL tabs, so we can root out the evil tabs!

I've also noticed that this extension doesn't seem to differentiate CPU cycles per tab. It just seems to reset the count for each tab refresh, but the count still ends up being a total for all tabs, not just one. The count is just reset on a per tab level and incremented accordingly.

I know this is experimental, but I just wanted to provide my insights so that we can build it into the best extension possible! Also, please update the compatibility to 4.0b if possible. Thanks!

Window and Tab Limiter

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There should be a separate limit for tabs and windows (e.g. Max Windows: 2, Max Tabs: 20).

A hybrid mode would also be useful, allowing values for both suggest/force modes (e.g. Max Windows: 2/3, Max Tabs: 20/30).

Finally, there should be some way to save pages for later, by allowing to bookmark them easily, perhaps by adding one of the following for each tab listed in the close-tabs dialog: either a dropdown field listing the bookmark folders tree, or adding the empty star bookmarking icon that looks and works just like the one in the location bar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.19). 

tabsearch

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd find title + page content searching to be more useful, though I'm guessing that'd be a bit more performance intensive. Perhaps it could be an option in the extension's prefs? ;)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Load Control

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If only this could limit how many tabs load at one time...

The problem is, tab fiends like myself who have to restore hundreds of tabs at once have to put up with FF loading EVERY SINGLE TAB AT ONCE!!

This extension doesn't truly solve that problem, and frankly I found it useless. So, while the description is certainly true... I honestly expect the above with a name like Load Control.

Course, if you incorporate the above feature, I'll certainly change this review to 5 stars! :)

Save Image in Folder

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please make it easy to add new locations by having a "New Location" to both SAVE the image you've right clicked, as well as to ADD the new location, essentially saving said image in the newly added location all in one shot!

Will update my review to 5 stars at that time. ;)

Thanks!

FavLoc

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please make it easy to add new locations by having a "New Location" to both SAVE the image you've right clicked, as well as to ADD the new location, all in one shot!

Will update my review to 5 stars at that time. ;)

Thanks!

TabAlarm

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension is highly difficult to use for my usage: setting simple countdown timers per tab. Ideally I'd like to right-click the status bar icon and click on a preset countdown length (customizable of course). Instead, it pops up a much more complex interface forcing you to choose a date and time... and while that /could/ be good in one or two cases, 90% of the time I just need a simple timer that focuses a specified tab anywhere from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. Sometimes longer, but not often.

Simplicity is bliss.
This extension... not so much.

GCal Popup

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

How about gcal notifier to go along with? :)

Mozilla Labs - Prism

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Prism allows https exceptions. Just not when adding new Prism apps in the dialog. Just proceed anyway, and when the site opens in a Prism window, it will allow you to set exceptions.

Could stand to support it on the dialog though, because I can't get the favicon! Also, it seems Prism itself has lost its prism-icon.

But all that is irregardless of this really convenient extension, to which I give a high-five!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0b2). 

TabCounter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is TONS BETTER than the other Tab Counter extension, which fails to both 1. actually count tabs 2. accessing options kills the Add Ons window.

This Tab Counting extension works perfectly, however... even in FF 3.7a1!

Tab Counter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension is definitely NOT COMPATIBLE with 3.7a1 and trying to access its OPTIONS renders the Add-Ons window unclickable AND unclosable.

Besides that, this extension here=> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6391 is TONS BETTER! (and everything works in 3.7a1 too!)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.2). 

Search It Later Sidebar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Would be better if it could hijack search box and location bar entries. Otherwise, it's a bit of an annoyance to use.

Group/Sort Tabs

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was terrible. Not organized at all. Tabs were going every which way, and I could never find anything. Not good for multi-taskers...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

Gomez WebInsight Extension For BrowserCam

A Mental 5 Stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Invalid file hash in v3.1b3, unfortunately :(

It's the thought that counts though, isn't it?
Now make it 3.5 compatible!
