Mes critiques

Browser View

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I'm very happy with this extension, as it allows me to view websites in different browsers in relative comfort. That's why it deserves all five stars.

Still, there's one thing I would like to mention: when I recently uninstalled my old Opera 12.x version, the browser kept being listed in browser-view. I would suggest the inclusion of a function, which checks every now and then if the browser executables exist on the hard drive. As far as I could determine, the Opera uninstallation left behind a number of registry traces. That's why I was only able to remove Opera from Browser View by manually going through the registry and deleting all references to the opera.exe file. That's certainly sloppy behavior of the Opera developers or their installer, but it wouldn't hurt to exclude non-existing applications by checking their application path.

Google Redirects Fixer & Tracking Remover

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I previously used the "Don't track me Google" userscript, which did alter Google's redirect and thus their knowledge of which links I click on the search page, but it also introduced its own (local) redirect. It was okay for privacy but not for comfort.

So, FINALLY, I've found the perfect solution in this addon! It does exactly what I have always wanted and it works silently in the background.

Thanks for creating this piece of comfort.

OmniSidebar

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Thanks for this update. It fixed the LastPass-error I mailed you about, now everything is working perfectly for me!

Ghostery

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

This is a must-have extension, because it removes so much unneeded clutter from surfing the web. Thanks to a white-list and the easily accessible disable/pause function for the whole blocking or for single sites, Ghostery is the perfect companion for any Firefox user.

My only issue - which is admittedly small - is with the navigation bar icon of Ghostery. It's truly minor, but the icon constantly changes size from one tab to another or from one website to the next. These repeated resizes drive me crazy, which is why I don't use the icon anymore. If we could get a fixed-width button (or an option to disable the number being displayed), Ghostery would deserve a full five stars.

archify

Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

I'll give this a three stars review for the idea of it only.

WARNING: Unfortunately, as others have reported as well, this extension has a major impact on browsing speed and makes regular use virtually impossible!

Some years ago, way back when Firefox 3.x was current, I tried to use a similar extension called Breadcrumbs and it had the very same issue.

I guess, that you're using an sqlite database to store a user's browsing history. Larger single-file databases like this are a well-known source of performance problems.

I would suggest the creation of a native (windows) application to get rid of the performance problems. With proper database and indexing features available in this way, you could create much lighter extensions to the major browsers that would do little more than report everything to the native application, request any data from a user search and generate no performance loss in the browser itself.

At least that's the way I would do it, because in its current form, archify has just been removed from my browser again.

Super Start

Good likeness of Opera's Speed Dial Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

This extension is great, let me say that at the beginning! It does mostly what I am used to from my Opera installation, it is just as customizable if not more so and it is surprisingly fast.

The only things I miss are two features, one functional and one entirely for nicer optics:

1.) Please introduce a setting which allows me to disable the entries in my right-click menu. I don't need them both in the context-menu for tabs AND the website itself, one is more than enough for me.

2.) My speed dial squares don't have any mouse-over effect. I have been using Opera for years and have gotten so used to that - now I'm missing it hugely.

Oh, I almost forgot: you have folders just like the new Opera Next 15, which is great. But could you introduce a feature, which can open all tabs within one folder at once? Maybe a context-menu entry or an option to use the middle mouse button (because that only opens another Super Start tab right now)?

Live HTTP Headers

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Five stars for this awesomeness.

I tried a similar extension for Google Chrome, but only found something incredibly unstable with bad handling on top of it. Only Opera included a HTTP header sniffer in its Dragonfly developer utility, but since that version of the browser won't receive any updates anymore, Live HTTP headers looks to be the only solution that works conveniently from within a browser.

Great stuff, I'll start using it more and more in the future as I phase the old Opera out.

CustomAppButton

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Four stars from me.

The extension does what it promised and it does not cause any issues. In short, I'm happy with the result.

A pre-made alternative design with black or dark text on light background (the one that exists is way too blurry) - or the inclusion of images into the button, as I've seen it done elsewhere - would have made this a five star review.

NoSquint

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I have been annoyed with Firefox for a long time, because it didn't keep the current zoom saved in the session. After a browser re-start, every opened tab was always back to 100 percent.

That's why NoSquint works so well for me: it does exactly what I like and there's no need for extensive configuration - which I could expand upon of course, if I needed it.

Great extension!

InstantFox Quick Search

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Rating this anything but the full five stars would be sacrilege. Let me tell you why:

my primary browser was Opera for a long time. It came with a full feature set for custom search engines and I was happy to use it for years. In dire need for a new browser (Firefox) and a replacement for the custom search feature, I found my salvation in InstantFox.

It does exactly what I want and is configurable enough, that other search providers work with suggestions.

LastPass Password Manager

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

While I am a bit leery about saving passwords on the Internet, this extension does what it promises and one cannot ask for more.

Nevertheless, I don't use LastPass for any truly important passwords like for work-related stuff, banking, my own web-space and e-mail. All of that is saved in a separate KeePass database on a thumb drive.

Tab Mix Plus

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

This extension allows me to re-create most if not all tab-related functions I am familiar with from the old Opera. It looks like Firefox will be the only browser (with its own engine, anyway) to feature a multi-row tab bar with extended customization. Great add-on!

Stylish

An essential extension Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I have been using Stylish for a long time now, maybe five or six years. In that time, I have used it to more and more effect, as I customized my most-used websites to my personal preferences. As the title implies, I couldn't live without it.

DownThemAll!

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Coming from Opera, this is the perfect replacement for its integrated download manager. While some stuff (like the bit-torrent download) is missing, you make up for it with other features like the amazing filter possibilities.

The reason why it only gets 4 stars is the window, that always opens with its use. I would have loved to pin it as an app-tab, but after I read that in your bug-tracker, that it would never happen, I can't give a full rating for the extension.

Adblock Edge

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Liking this alternative to AdBlock Plus very much, thank you for keeping it reasonably up to date!

The reason why it only gets 4 out of 5 stars is my small problem with the icon positioning. I can do whatever I want with it, but with the next browser start, the AdBlock Edge icon will find itself repositioned at the right end of the navigation bar.

Adblock Plus

Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

12 million users and the developer of this add-on has finally caved to the financial temptations of advertising companies.

This new version does two things terribly wrong:

1.) Instead of implementing the new "feature" of acceptable ads by having it deactivated by default, we get an opt-out function. I'm convinced that half the people who updated their add-ons lately thought that there was an error somewhere in AdBlock Plus.

2.) For some strange reason, the add-on is even slower than before. In version 1.3.x it was already the slowest extension I've been using, but now it's even worse.

Sorry Wladimir, but I won't use this anymore, both because it's finally reached a point where it's more bother than it's worth, but also out of principle! I had donated in the past and I'm very disappointed in this development. Maybe I'll get myself an Ad Muncher license now.
