Mis revisiones

Chromin Frame

Good Chrome experience, but with annoying flaw Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

While Firefox is a superior browser, Google Chrome does have a innovative user interface whose best parts I hope will make it into Fx4.

This addon (which oddly is not a theme) provides much of the Chrome experience, chiefly the tabs above the address bar. It seems solid and handles the tabs smoothly.

Unfortunately, double-clicks on the title bar are handled inconsistently: When maximized, a new tab is opened, instead of reverting to the smaller window size. This is very annoying.

Fission

Should come as standard Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

The use of the location field as a progress bar improves usability. I'm surprised something like this doesn't come standard with Firefox.

One thing to improve could be to provide more customization options, for instance it would be nice to have the bar update itself more smoothly and not in big chunks.

Tab Sidebar

Great idea Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

On many screens there's a lot of unused space and showing tab previews in Firefox is a great use for it. I like the fact that the tool is so versatile, you can drag and drop, even browse within the thumbnails.

I have one suggestion though. The color saturation of a thumbnail is decreased when the mouse leaves the thumbnail. That's good, but I would like to lower it to a customized level I set myself (I also want to be able to adjust the contrast) to make the thumbnails less eye-catching and visually intrusive.

myFireFox & Vista-aero Modifier

Really nice Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This extension makes it possible to tweak the great Vista-aero theme. It has improved a lot since I used it a year ago.

I love the fact that you can now keep the original status bar color -- looks way better!

Please add a number of gray system backgrounds for the main bars and menus. That way the integration with Windows XP can become perfect. Should be an easy fix.

Element Hiding Helper para Adblock Plus

Essential! Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

I installed this add-on today, and it didn't take long for me to realize that this is what I've been looking for!

Adblock Plus is great for blocking stuff from known ad sites, but it is quite useless for integrated content. Well, with this add-on you will be able to block most annoying page sections. I find many sites I regularly visit are cluttered and slow-rendering with too much irrelevant stuff. Now I can easily block that, without using custom Greasemonkey scripts or whatever. Pages render quicker and you get the content you want.

Just one wish, often you block too much content. Then you REALLY need an UNDO block function, because it's a hassle to go through all blocks, trying to locate and delete the bad block! Should be relatively easy to fix.

Showcase

Takes FF usability up to par with IE7 Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Showing thumbnails of opened tabs is not possible in the basic Firefox installation. But IE7 has it. Well, thanks to FF Showcase I can now have it in FF as well. It's more or less flawless and it's a solid MUST-HAVE on every Firefox installation. The only (minor) problem is that sometimes some special content isn't rendered by Showcase.

NoScript

A must-have, but needs reconfiguration Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

You'll be amazed at how much junk and privacy intrusions you block when using this. It is great when browsing the web casually, knowing that no site can launch scripts without you permitting it explicitly.

The recent usability feature additions (such as easy whitelisting) makes NoScript much better that it was before. Then it was a nuisance, now it's a must have I can't live without.

However, you need to reconfigure the tool to avoid disturbing messages on a yellow information bar. Enable the status bar to show the messages and disable the yellow bar. The default settings should change to this.

Mouse Gestures Redox

Great for ergonomics Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Using mouse gestures to send back- and forward commands to the browser makes it so much more convenient to surf the web. If you suffer from "mouse arm" you can now avoid moving the mouse pointer to the back and forward icons all the time. Great for ergonomics!

In fact, this concept is so great so that it should be a part of the OS. I constantly find myself tring to use mouse gestures in the OS... forgetting that I'm not using Firefox... I hope the OpenSource movement will pick up on this.

Some things could be improved. First, the visual trails should be enabled by default so that you can see what you're doing. And then default settings should only incorporate the most common commands, so that the average user doesn't submit strange commands by mistake, so that "right-down" means "right" and so on. I know it's all configurable, but almost nobody will care to dig into that.

Adblock Plus

Spectacularly brilliant!!! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This extension is so great that I can't even think of surfing the web without it! Just imagine the wonders it can do for you who have a slow internet connection or pay per megabyte -- just don't download those freaking ads and save your sanity, time and money!! This extension is reason alone to use Firefox!

The only thing that could be improved is the way you manually locate and block stuff that slips through.

To get an even better web experience, I have a tip: Disable animated images that drive you nuts whenever they appear. Just use about:config and set the image.animation_mode value to none. Flashblocker is an extension that also could be of interest.
