WebMail Notifier (2.8.1)
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.
Very Important Side Note: It appears that WebMail Notifier (2.8.1). Will generally not work in conjunction with the newly upgraded Hotmail free mail account (There seems to also be some exceptions to this claim as well. But so far not many.) I can assume. This also applies to premium version of Hotmail accounts as well. But can not confirm that. Since none of the team has a paid Hotmail premium account
