Editors' review

This free plug-in adds yet another facet to the social-networking craze by letting you publish comments while you browse. But stability issues and lack of user participation take most of the fun out of this freeware.

iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox places shortcut buttons on your IE and Firefox toolbars. Clicking on the button activates the program and lets you comment on a particular Web page, selected text, or picture. It also reveals other users comments as tags on the right side of the browser window. The settings options let you change your profile name, and add your favorite links so that they appear with your profile. As we browsed, we noticed that user comments were few and far between. The few user comments that we came across were outdated. Still, we were able to add our own comment very easily, even if no one was there to read it.

On several occasions, the program caused IE to stop working, although it proved to be more stable with Firefox. This program might be more fun if it had more users. But we didn't want to stick around to find out, and you probably won't want to either.

    "Could give Facebook a run for their money. Hot stuff."

    October 11, 2008   |   By sitebaron

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    I'm totally impressed. Looks as nice as any Google, Yahoo or Microsoft software, performs well and really useful.

    Cons

    I think the download.com editor missed the mark on this one.

    Summary

    Really turns the entire web into a social network where you not only meet people but get the chance to talk back.

    September 19, 2008   |   By abluescarab

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    - Haven't tried it yet, though I really wanted to.

    Cons

    - I couldn't even install it due to "Socket Error #11004".

    Summary

    Couldn't install it for a socket error. What the heck is a socket error?!!

    "<br />Nice Program, badly needed, working fast for me"

    August 03, 2008   |   By squakerbox

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    Love the ability to write comments on any web page and communicate with other people that way. A lot of the pages don't let you speak/squak out. Bushi.. I'm not experiencing any slowdown. Maybe they increased their server power. LOOKING GOOD ICOMMENT! Give us more!

    Cons

    Needs a lot of users... I hope everyone gets in on this so there is a true way to tell what's up on a website.

    "Shame on any company that submits reviews on their own products."

    April 27, 2008   |   By itsme2003

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    I won't download anything when the company writes favorable reviews of their own product. They think we are so stupid that we won't spot it.

    Cons

    I absolutely hate it when companies stuff the ballot box by writing favorable reviews of their own product. In this case they made so many mistakes. Some companies really do a good job stuffing the ballot box, but these guys did a lousy job.

    For starters, at the time of the writing of this review, this product has less than 100 downloads and 7 comments. I did some looking around and typically products on download.com have 1 comment for somewhere between every 1000 and every 10000 downloads. I saw one product on download.com that had over 500,000 downloads and only 7 comments.

    Ask yourself how likely it is that 7 people out of 100 would have commented on this product (almost all very favorable, by the way) when another product gets 7 comments out of 500,000 downloads.

    "Why didn't I think of this? What a great idea. Well done."

    April 06, 2008   |   By larryshepard

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    Easy to use. Intuitive. Works well. But most important this provides a badly needed great service. I think this is going to change the net and get rid of a lot of the dishonesty. And now I get to add my 2 cents :)

    "Simply awesome"

    April 05, 2008   |   By DJYANKEE2

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    Love that you can put your own personal opinion on every web page. Also love how easy it is to use and that the comments are easy to hide/show. Seeing other people's comments on webpages is revolutionary.

    Cons

    That it didn't come out sooner

    "I thought it was quite remarkable"

    April 03, 2008   |   By coneybob

    Version: iComment Button for Internet Explorer & Firefox 1.0.10

    Pros

    a truly great idea -- letting me leave my comments on the web -- and so easy -- am anxious to see other comments so as to help me make decisions on buying things -- can not wait to leave my true feelings about vendors who were not exactly what they said they would be -- really a remarkable idea!!!
