WebMail Notifier (2.8.3)
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 (2.8.3). Will now work in conjunction with the newly upgraded Hotmail free mail account. Well done WMN Team.
