An excellent start... Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
It was very cool of you to take on the task of restoring a feature that has been a fixture of this browser for as long as I can remember... Personally, I am the ultimate creature of habit (not to mention an honest-to-goodness OCD sufferer). I also happen to be a firm believer in the old adage: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The 'zilla developers have provided a lot of useful features over the years, but this one seems to be nothing more than change for the sake of change. I don't recall hearing too many complaints about the old DLM (although I'm sure you can find someone to complain about just about anything if you look around the ol' WWW), but they totally twisted it around anyway. The new DLM doesn't really add any useful functionality as far as I can tell, and it even manages to clutter an already-busy URL bar in the process (even if the dumb button can be removed). Even more ironic... the boys at 'zilla managed to ditch the old legacy functionality without any fanfare, but didn't bother to remove the old "useToolkitUI" entry in about:config. Love it. Anyway, enough of my griping.
I absolutely think you've got a great start here for all of the old-schoolers among us. Unfortunately, you've also taken on a near-impossible task... pleasing all of the people all of the time. In some cases, the suggestions made by some of the other reviewers appear to be polar opposites of one another.
If I might offer a suggestion to make the task a bit more manageable... Priority one: Make it function as close to the old one as possible. Then we're at least back to where we started. Priority two: Start adding some of the suggested additional features as options on subsequent versions. I'd suspect that you'll end up with a product that will eventualy be better than the original... and miles ahead of the torqued up mess that the "new and improved" DLM is.
Best of luck... I will certainly keep up with the development of this add-on. Let's face it, the 'zilla boys haven't set the bar too high... and I think you'll have an excellent and popular replacement available in relatively short order. Kudos!
This thing rocks! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
As a dial-up user, I have fits with streaming video, especially when they won't cache. I get hiccups, burps and gurgles... In other words, completely unwatchable. I found this extension and it solved my problem. I even threw it a curveball and added a Shockwave extension (swf). No problem... It found the link, grabbed it and I was downloading in no time! I can't say that about two other extensions (which have found their way to my trash can as a result).
Great doo-dad! Does what it says. Beautiful!
