    Gotta call bullshit on this.

    EPUBReader: “Works flawlessly.” Not sure where you pulled that quote from, but it’s almost guaranteed to be referring to the old, legacy version of the addon. 14 out of 22 comments for the new 2.0+ version of the addon — the WebExtension version — give it a 1 star rating. One of the 5 star rating tells you to install version 1.5, because that one actually works.

    Overall, this seems disingenuous at best.

    Not familiar with the rest of the addons, except for Zoom Page WE, which has been associated with poor performance and bugs in the latest nightlies.

      I do not have the problems you describe with Zoom Page, it works smoothly on my Nightly. But in any case, you shouldn’t test and judge performance or anything on nightly as it is not stable.

    the featured addons list is always a good laugh

    1. Thrawn wrote on :

      Of course, all the addons on this list are “Firefox 57+ compatible”.

      A pity that only one of the top 10 most popular extensions is similarly compatible…

    I hope they’ve improved it since I last used it, which wasn’t all that long ago, it was a disaster, to be frank!
    You couldn’t sign in to the website/your a/c + it just didn’t work well in your browser. Great tool, but, like I said, not so much as an add-on, in my experience, which is all I’m working from…..
