Flickr Suite Content
This is a fantastic way for my clients to display photos on their website. No more having to talk them through resizing and uploading, or worrying about GB of disk space being used. Now they just upload to Flickr and insert the shortcode into the article where they need it.

I had some problems getting it working, but the developer responded immediately and fixed the problem within a couple of hours.

Highly recommended.

SEO Glossary
I highly recommend this glossary component. It works very well and when I reported a bug a new version with a was fix was released within 24 hours.

One possible improvement would be to make it so that the glossary entires don't add tooltips/links to themselves within their description.
Owner's reply

Thanks for your Glossary review. This is a quite interesting parameter for tooltips idea for a next version. Will add it into our todo list for sure.

Enjoy!

DPCalendar Lite
This extension is pretty much faultless and a great way to display a Google calendar on your site. It can display multiple Google calendars at once and handles private calendars too.

I asked a question on the support forum and it was answered in an hour.

MageBridge
I am a bit reluctant to use bridges because they are without fail a nightmare to set up and debug. However, Magebridge is about as good as it gets.

The coding is immaculate and the support is also superb. There were virtually no bugs and a couple of minor problems I reported were fixed within days (often hours) of reporting them.

Still, a Magebridge project requires a lot of work and is not for the faint hearted. I would think carefully if you actually need the features of both Joomla and Magento in your store. But if you do, then I would definitely recommend Magebridge.
