My Reviews

Sieve

Thank you, itch i couldn't scratch Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks so much, I haven't updated my rules for years, since Squirrelmail stopped being all that useful. I am sure you are familiar with AvelSieve, any chance we'll see that kind of polish on this addon? Perhaps an open source license would help get it there? Any way, THANK YOU for your work, really appreciated!!

EDIT: oh my goodness I just found the extra tools when clicking off the Source button. Nice!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.0). 

FoxStocks

Works as you'd expect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Worked out of the box as advertised. The status bar is a good place for the quotes - out of the way but always available. I like the fact that this uses Google Finance, because the stock quotes are not delayed as they are with many other free quote sources. One minor issue: with many addons installed, the status bar can become very full. When a stock quote is retrieved, the text in the status bar box changes to "Loading..." and resizes the box, which slides the status bar around, which is visually disruptive. It would be smoother if the box did not change size while loading a quote. Thanks again!

Ecocho Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Installing the ecocho toolbar in Firefox 3 from the ecocho website works great, thanks! Great idea, and it's nice to have quick access.

The version from the website is listed as version 1.7. But the version here is listed as 1.0. It needs updating, it isn't compatible with Firefox 3.

Google Reader Toolkit

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is nice and clean. Easy access to the preferences. A simpler alternative to "Google Reader Notifier" addon, which is similar but seems bigger. But you'll have to keep yourself logged in on your own with this addon.

The name confused me, as "toolkit" makes it sound like it does a whole lot of different tasks. But it turned out to be simple and clean.

Adsense Preview

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised, gives you a chance to test things out visually. That's a big help before committing to dropping in the adsense code.

CustomizeGoogle

Lots of nice options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lots of nice options, separated into individual prefs. This is helpful, since some of the options, like favicons and stream results, can slow things down, especially if you like to grab 100 results at a time, like me. At one point, I had a problem with streaming results - they appear to really hit google hard at the 100 results setting - to the point where google was providing capcha verifications before showing the results, as it thought there was spyware involved. All the other options seems to enhance without getting in the way. Nice.

SiteBar Client for Firefox 2.0.x

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your awesome bookmarking software, I run it on my server and love it. Would be great to get a bump up to FF3.0 for this plugin!
