My Reviews

Firebug

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes firefox the untouchable browser. There's no point in switching to another browser for web development because they don't have firebug. Firebug lite doesn't cut it. Its crazy that FF created their own version of Firebug rather than trying to integrate Firebug natively

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.11.4). 

Cryptocat

Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Cryptography without having to try. Somebody sorts out the difficult bit and gives you a suitably secure but easy way to chat. It has a clean interface too which is brilliant. Note that I'm trying it with FF v22 and it works perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.6). 

Add to Delicious

Just installed - loving it so far Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There really is a total lack of Delicious plugins for Firefox. This does as it says and is properly integrated with the FF Plugin SDK so can be installed / disabled / enabled without having to restart FF (and comes with automatic updates). Its good to see developers making use of the new changes. Nice icon too! I like the right-click concept too - means I can bookmark things for reading, before getting trapped into actually reading them (given most of my web surfing is complete time wasting that's important).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11). 

LeechBlock

Genie in the blocker Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant add-on. I have a nice-simple answer to procrastination - block all .com websites. At first its a bit complex to understand, but it does allow you to fine tune things nicely. 10 mins for news sites, 5 minutes for games, 10 minutes for the rest of the .com sites.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2). 

Taggee

Nice and simple Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So, given that that official AVOS FF plugin doesn't fill out the recommended tags, and seems to have memory leak problems, this is a nice simple substitute. Its effectively the same as having the bookmark, but means that you can hide the book marks toolbar and have the button amongst your tabs.

Cubbi.es

Cool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Cubbi.es + Firefox pluging + shift + click is actually damn cool. Bit finicity to use at first, but now its working, all synced in with dropbox, I love it.

BetterPrivacy

Explains all those google ads Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ever searched for something on one site and then found adverts popping up on other sites. I reckon this extension will stop that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.67). 

beats are fun

Beautiful colours and textures Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Shows up the Firefox 4 lovely transparency features the best of all themes I tried. Beautiful colours and textures.

There is also a feint shadow of the old Firefox 3 address bar and navigation buttons - it shows up at the top at about 1000px from the left when you maximise the firefox for a 1920x1080 monitor (sorry couldn't find the correct place to submit bugs for personas)

apphash

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love the idea once I figured it out. The 'apphash' text in the status bar was white and my status bar is white at the bottom, so I had no idea how to interact with it. Once I found that its great, regular expression for cryp.sr came up a happy green on my first attempt.
