All Weblinks
This is a really useful extension which - with a few minor changes and additions - could become essential to any site.

I love the way you can get the link description simply with a mouseover.

Like another reviewer, I found the category headings far too big used as a side module. But this was easily changed by altering the size to "componentheading" in the helper file. I disliked the "*" at the start and end of new links but again this was easy to remove and looks neater without.

If it was possible to specify links from certain categories - rather than the entire list - this would get a 5* rating. Perhaps this could be a future improvement? It would be nice to be able to have multiple copies of the module showing links from appropriate categories next to related content on different webpages.

Bullets would also make the layout more appealing.

I shall be watching this extension and keeping my fingers crossed that categories are possible soon.
Owner's reply

I create a mambot/plugin for the joomla 1.0 verseion where you can show just one category in a article and by repeating the mambot/plugin call you get multiple catagories.
There is also an inline stilesheet in the mambot.
So if you're using joomla 1.0 then this hould be your choice.

I plan to make a plugin for Joomla 1.5 to do the same but no release date yet
