X-notifier (3.5.6) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

X-notifier (3.5.6)

A. Ease Of Use: 5/5 – Very easy to setup multiple e-mail accounts. On any of several different free mail services. Such as Outlook, AOL, Yahoo, Gmail and many many more.

B. Security: (Very Un-secure) – It gives you a by-pass of all your passwords and usernames. Not recommended for shared and or public computers or for high security e-mail accounts. (I would also avoid any Wi-Fi hotspots as well.)

BB. Other Important Security Information:  Just remember your E-mail account passwords and usernames are view-able in the FireFox Options. Under SecuritySaved Passwords

C. Usefulness: 3/5 – If you are lazy like me or just have a really bad memory go for it. Just remember. You are at an SEVERELY ELEVATED risk of your e-mail account(s) being hacked and or hijacked. Due to how easy it is to find and copy your usernames and passwords.

D. FireFox Slowdown: Very minimal for most computers

E. Computer Slow Down: None

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: I would only recommend this add-on for people who are unable to use e-mail without assistance.

**If you are good with the Internet and free e-mail accounts such as Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo and have a good memory. Please try to avoid this potentially massive security risk to your e-mail security and any sensitive data stored there-in.

    Only MAJOR flaw with this one is the inability to get at your passwords (like you can in FF, would be nice). They do not get saved in FF as well as X-Notifier.

    Even if you export, they are either not included or unreadable.

    Machine crash and that is the only place they are, you are in for a real nightmare :-)

    Other than that, it is a delight.
