"Was good, but no longer compatible with recent Firefox versions"

The title says it all. It's not longer compatible, so if you want to use recent versions of Firefox, there's no point in downloading it.

That being said, I liked it, it was a light addon that allowed to limit download and upload speeds. This was quite useful in the sense that I am on a network shared by others and on fast sites I could use up all the bandwidth, slowing internet speed for everyone else. It also kept track of how much I downloaded, to respect download limits by my greedy ISP (no alternative unfortunately).

It did what it said it did. It was easy to use and was simple. It could be placed in the status bar, where it fit perfectly and conspicuously. It was great... and now it's dead. Hence my schizophrenic rating, 10 for everything, but an overall rating of 1.

The only alternative I know of is to use a download manager with throttling included, but that's valid only for files that are downloaded. It doesn't limit upload speed and it doesn't affect streaming media.
