My Reviews

X-Forwarded-For Header

Almost there... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This would be MUCH better with two enhancements. First, while you can set the original IP address to anything you want, it puts your actual externally facing IP address as the first proxy address. Anybody receiving the chain of IPs can easily see that, if the originating address is not your own, then the first proxy is - and anonymity is violated. You should be able to designate a separate proxy (say an anonymized one) for the first proxy. Second, you should be able to turn the add-on on and off from a toolbar as, on a desktop or laptop computer without GPS or cell location, some apps (google maps, for example) will not be able to pinpoint your current location as they rely on the originating IP address.

The latter is an inconvenience (you can set a HOME address and simply go through a couple more clicks), but the use of your actual IP address as the first proxy makes the promise of anonymity pretty much meaningless.

WikiTweak - Wikipedia Enhancer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I''m just downloading this, so I don't know if you have addressed my pet peeve about Wikipedia. When the homepage comes up, the cursor should be automatically located in the search entry control. Now, you have to manually select the entry control. That would make the UI much friendlier. Next version?

I'm rating this based on your other Tweak products I love and the list of features.
