Troubling extension

Functionality
Puts an RSS feed on your site wherever you position it, but the free version advertises on your website. You can't change the title.

Ease of use
It's not too difficult to setup, but the setup is strange. You cannot define a feed in your admin panel. You have to go to POWr's website.

I used this to: I uninstalled it. The uninstall failed. The manifest was left behind as well as the db tables it was inserted into.

I used this to: performance enhancement. This changes all the social buttons to asynchronous scripts, which prevents them from blocking page loading until they are loaded.

Extension writer blew off my report and blamed me for the problem

I used this to: I don't.
Owner's reply: Upon closer review of this customer site, there were numerous CSS validation errors (over 700) plus a dozen JavaScript error. Merging CSS and JavaScript in that case would indeed lead to things to stop working. Merging 1 corrupt file with 1 clean file, will simply result into 1 combined file that is corrupt. Our extension can't solve these errors, they need to be solved with another extension or developer instead.

Very simple. Some functionality requires upgrading to the Pro version, but I didn't need it. It works fine.

I used this to: I had a static web page with photographs on it. I wanted to turn it into a slideshow. I tried five different extensions before this one, and none of them did what I wanted. This extension fills the page, presents all the photos at the exact same width and height and just works
