First time I tried to install, it did not even let me pass the installation on Magento Connect Manager.
Second attempt next day and allowed me to install, but for some reason I could not figure out the site went down, blank page on admin and main page, I had to roll-back the plugin installation.
Unfortunately it has not worked for me.

Good Function big security problems
The idea behind this module is great and a big time savior.
BUT the implementation of the module is poorly done and insecure.
First of all you dont have to log in to admin to use this module so you cant use it on productive sites. And the biggest problem is even if the module is deactivated in the configuration it will write its code in the html dom invisible via css. so for example the google robot can "index" the development toolbar urls and anyone else who looks in the html code.
Please fix asap or put this module out of here!

Works but auto offline issue not yet fixed
This extension works overall as described, but the auto offline issue as reported fixed in version 2.0.9 seems not yet fixed.
Besides stores being turned, template hints, inline translation etc is being turned on randomly - and this while the extension is only reachable from our fixed IP at the office.
Another downside, is that even with the extension turned off, code is injected in the HTML on the front-end.
So, when you have this extension installed on a production environment, be sure to turn off the extension AND its module output to avoid any unwanted behaviour until you actually need it to put the store into maintenance mode.
It would be nice to have both issues fixed.

if you have time to spare for reconfiguring your magento setting take this extension!
never saw such a mess. Dont even talk about code quality.
usefulness = zero

Worked fine then messed up
This extension was working fine, it did what i wanted and all was well.
when i was done i turned it off in settings and went home, the next morning though i come into work and find the site was a mess.
Template path hints turned on in backend and frontend, symlinks had been enabled and nothing would turn back off!!
i tried turning them off from the toolbar but whatever i clicked just opened the backend home screen, i checked in settings and everything was turned off but the toolbar still said enabled.
finally i uninstalled this extension but that still hasn't helped me, now i have to spend my morning trying to fix whatever this extension messed up.
sorry but i don't recommend this extension.

This is quite an awesome tool. I started working at my new company jst some few days ago and I had no magento experience and now I feel like a pro. Thanks, keep helping us out with these awesome apps

This module seems scary to me. It generates a lot of code and links in the HTML even when visiting from a non-developer IP address. The HTML code also contain errors which W3C will not validate.
