My Reviews

Clear Dns Cache

Works like it says on the tin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works as specified. A cool enhancement would be to use file alteration monitoring (inotify or the equivalent on other OSes) to detect changes to the /etc/hosts file and clear the cache automatically.

Search Engine Sorting

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There is a slight GUI bug in the latest version. In sortbtn.xul, there is a extra "/>" after the second button is closed. This shows in the interface.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1).
