    Not to downplay the role of the judges, nor the time and effort they put in during their selection process, but is there a *full* listing somewhere of all submissions?

    Is it possible to change your vote by resubmitting a form?
    It seems I made my conclusion a bit too soon.
    Session Sync has some poor performance to the extend of freezing my browser.

      Hi Nothan,
      I’m the developer of Session Sync. Sorry for using the forum to ask this but can you please tell me or contact me via email (you can find it in the addon page) what do you mean by poor performance? I can’t find any valid reason why the addon would freeze the browser and I would like to know what you did in this case. I put a lot of effort into making it as lite as possible to the browser and performance should definitely not be an issues. I didn’t try saving 1000 bookmarks at once, (that’s definitely outside of what I would call browser session) but even with 200 bookmarks should definitely not be a problem. I tested it with around 200, you have to wait like 1 seconds to save them but were talking about something very unusual I would say. Of course, how old the PC is might matter here, it might take a little more time but outside of saving the addon does not affect the overall PC performance in any way. The only thing that works in background is the auto-save history that can be disabled as well.
      Thank you
      Gabriel Ivanica

        I don’t have it installed anymore.
        But I remember the “show all windows” button not working, the view re-rendering every time a tab updated, something slow with session updating (can’t remember), and freezing when restoring a session. My computer performs fine. I have quite some tabs though, that could be it I guess.

        Didn’t end up changing my vote btw.
        The other session extension nullified restored tabs after a restart of Firefox -_-

          Thanks for the info. It’s was really valuable. As you say the re-rendering every time a tab is updated might create some lag if you have a lot a lot of tabs that change often. I think I have a pretty good idea of what might have happened and some improvements to do for the next update. Thanks a lot.

    Good luck to all contestants!

    As there are some extensions without any contact information, some feedback here:
    “Web Invaders” – it showed a red dot when I clicked it, hovering it said “Loading”, but that was it. Tried it on several websites with Firefox 60.0b16
