My Reviews

uBlock Lite

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Pathetic scam extension. It tries to inject a Google Analytics script in every page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.8). 

Adblock Hyper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Worst uBlock Origin fork ever!

"This is uBlock Origin 1.12.1 + added phone-home"

See the comment of the original developer: https://twitter.com/gorhill/status/898567728465944576

And of course it doesn't use half the memory of the orginal uBlock!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Menu Wizard

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a successor for the good old "Menu Editor" extension for recent FF versions. And this thing here is much better. The preferences dialog is much better and clearer, where you can remove and move menu items. And the big plus is that you can rename items. That's a very cool feature.

Well done. Thank you very much for developing it. :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.01.1-signed). 

SimpleBlock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Minimalist, very fast and low ressources. For me the best method to block ads, tracking scripts and other annoying things. Perhaps not for every user. There is no GUI and no subscription lists, like in ABP. Create a file named "SimpleBlock.ini" in the FF profile directory and add your own entries. See the developer's comments for examples.

I prefer this one over the similar add-on "Silent Block", because "SimpleBlock" provides Regex AND indexOf rules. Regex is relative hard to understand for a beginner.

Sadly this add-on doesn't work correctly since FF v27. Example: I use the entries "/twitter2." and "/facebook2.png" in my "SimpleBlock.ini". On the site www.win-lite.de these two entries block the twitter and facebook PNGs on the right side, but it remain two squares with clickable links (to facebook and twitter). In FF v26 and prior versions the blocked elements were completely hidden. See the screenshot: http://abload.de/image.php?img=simpleblock_v26_v27xukj2.png

This problem occurs on every site, where images get blocked. I hope this can be fixed. Thank you in advance.

RequestPolicy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me one of the most important add-ons for Firefox. I used it for years, then tried other solutions, but came back to it.

It's like a firewall, blocks all 3rd party sites, most ads and tracking scripts, which makes surfing more secure and much faster. This makes the bloated Adblock Plus/ Edge redundant (for me). Great in conjunction with NoScript, which gives the perfect security suite.

Yes, you have to do a little work to whitelist at the beginning, like NoScript. So it will probably not be for the average user, who will be stressed out. But in the end it will give you great security and a faster and less annoying web experience.

Clean Links

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this useful and leightweight Add-on.

I especially like the "Event Delegation Mode" and that you haven't to reload the page if you disable or enable the function of the Add-on.

A good example of using this Add-on is in companion with "NoScript": Blocking Google-Search with "Noscript" and get direct access to the Images of the Google Image Seach with "Clean Links".

Like mentioned, an unshortening feature would be really great. I finally switched from Redirect Cleaner.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

about:addons-memory

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great idea. For a long time I wished I could watch the memory consumption of add-ons in a simple and clear way. Using the build in "about:memory?verbose" and try to read the add-on memory is simply too hard.

A more compact view of the list would be great. Especially if you use a lot of add-ons (30-40 in my case). But that's just my personal wish.

Well done! Thank you very much for this useful add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1-signed.1-signed). 

Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. And thank you for the update. Works great with ADP 1.3.1.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.8). 

OptimizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great! Thank you very much for the replacement for abandoned "CustomizeGoogle".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.77). 

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Highly recommended. I can't imagine googling without it.

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It was great until now. It's abandoned. I use now the replacement "OptimizeGoogle".

App Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice Add-on. Works great with Tabberwocky. Thanks for this feature.

Multi Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great alternative to "Snap Links". It works good, but uses more resources than "Snap Links"- version (snaplinks-1.0.3.0pre37) available here: http://downloads.mozdev.org/snaplinks

Tested with "XUL-Profiler"... needs 3x more "average time" in work than the Snap-Link-version above in my tests.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.12).
