Download Statusbar

Version 0.9.10 still NOT SAFE! Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

This new version SUPPOSEDLY "reverts to what was available in the addon site previously" (0.9.8) and erases the spyware fiasco. Except wait a minute, if you want to revert to a previous version you just delete any subsequently posted updates, right? Unless of course you are just straight up lying... and what do you know... the file sizes between (clean) version 0.9.8 and new reverted version 0.9.10 are different by 18kb! SURPRISE! The addon is now nagware and likely to contain deeply embedded trackers and other goodies. C.J. and Enzymatic Software have hijacked this addon from its original developers and loaded it with all kinds of nastiness. I am amazed that it is still available here.

DO NOT USE THIS!

Adblock Plus

Unfortunately, basically a requirement today Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Yeah, I can feel web masters' frustration with everyone using this addon and eliminating a source of revenue but, let's face it, they brought this upon themselves. By refusing to reign in obnoxious, offensive, loud, annoying, and totally irrelevant (to the embedding content) ads with some set of standards, users were left with no choice. Not to mention tracking and the huge percentage of ads that are straight scams designed to take advantage of the vulnerability of inexperienced web users. Simply disgusting (sometimes viscerally). I use this addon without the least pangs of guilt.

That being said, try to support the web sites you visit in other ways. Maybe donate or actually subscribe to their print publications. And be sure to use affiliate links to Amazon and the like.

Download Manager Tweak

A good addon Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Now that Download Statusbar is "sponsored," this is basically your only option for download manager aesthetic tweaks. It's very flexible and adds an info panel, a massive omission in the stock Firefox interface. Yeah, it's a bit retro and amateurish, but not in a bad way (which you will appreciate after Download Statusbar installs a sneaky "sponsorship" system). Hopefully some updates are forthcoming.

A popular addon gets greedy Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

This addon has just begun to include "sponsorship" (as of version 0.9.9). What that entails is literally NOT EXPLAINED AT ALL. Is it some type of tracking? Displaying ads randomly? Sure, you can turn it off, but that doesn't really mean anything because you have no idea what "it" is. This addon is nice, but at the end of the day it's only an aesthetic improvement, for which there are alternatives. I appreciate the efforts developers put forth, and I actually donate when possible, but sleazy and underhanded efforts to profit from a large install base (generated prior to the inclusion of said "sponsorship") means you're gone.

Sorry if I seem to be "assuming the worst," but I think most users (especially of Firefox) will agree such a stance is entirely appropriate these days.
