WebMail Notifier (2.8)
A. Ease Of Use: 4.5/5 – Very easy to setup multiply e-mail accounts on several different free mail services. Such as Hotmail, 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 public WI-FI as well)
BB. Other Important Security Information: Just remember your passwords and usernames are viewable in FireFox Options. Under Security "Saved Passwords"
C. Usefulness: 4/5 – If you are lazy like me or have a really bad memory go for it. Just remember you are at an elevated risk of your e-mail accounts being hacked and or hijacked.
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 other free mail accounts such as MSN, Gmail, Yahoo and have a good memory. Please try to avoid this potentially massive security risk.

TweetDeck – is an Adobe AIR desktop application for use with Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Foursquare and or Google Buzz. Like other Twitter applications it interfaces with your Twitter accounts to allow users to send and receive tweets and view profiles.
1. Q: Who is TweetDeck for ?
A: TweetDeck is meant for any user of Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Foursquare and or Google Buzz (But we tested it for Twitter only)
2. Q: Is TweetDeck Safe To Use ?
A: Yes, so far it does seem to be. But like Twitter itself. You can click on a link and thus can get a virus or be sent to a infected website. But so far there is still pretty low threshold of reports to that effect. But I assure you as Twitter grows and TweetDeck gets bigger. I can assure you that rate will dramatically increase.
3. Q: Is TweetDeck Easy To Use ?
A: Now I may sound super stupid. But I found this to be one of the most difficult apps to pick up and use. I still as I am writing this have yet to uncover all of hidden TweetDecks functions. So is it an easy program to use ? I would have to say NO at this point.
But it is getting a lot more easier moving forward. I expect once we finally hit (1.00.0) version it should be way easier to use.
4. Q: Should I Allow My Kids To Use TweetDeck ?
A: I in this case actually would say YES. This program can help you bridge the gap of so many aspects of social networking. It may even bring you closer to your kids (With it much more simple to use UI (User Interface) . But expect some hang time in understanding TweetDeck and all of its settings.
5. Q: Is TweetDeck Stable ?
A: No, question here it is indeed stable. There have only been some very minor glitches such as showing the incorrect number of followers.
6. Q: Is TweetDeck Useful ?
A: Heck yeah. I pretty much am using it everyday. It is a blast to use and is very useful to keep on top of all the new tweets being posted by all your friends.
7. Q: Do I Need A TweetDeck Account ?
A: There is no TweetDeck account. But it does require having one or more of the following accounts Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Foursquare and or Google Buzz.
8. Q: Does TweetDeck Spam Users ?
A: No, not that I'm aware
9. Q: Are There Any Ads On TweetDeck ?
A: No, not that I have noticed
Final overall score for TweetDeck is a 4 out of 5 – This app/program does have a lot of useful features. But TweetDeck also has a lot overlapping features. Some are there so you can watch a bunch of different accounts at the same time and in one place. I personally wish it was easier to understand and use all of its many many features TweetDeck has to offer.
