Good but unstable
By , for WP 3.9

It does the job but sometimes resets by itself. There's also the problem in the settings window - showing behind other widgets and making it hard to check boxes regarding posts and pages.

No Tag support + prone to getting stuck.

It does not provide control over widgets on Tag archive pages.
I was happy to use this plugin because it helped me to hide widgets from specific pages, posts and category archives. But only till I found it has weird effect on Tag pages. It displays all unwanted widgets on them. But weird thing is, all content from them is removed. Only empty containers are displayed, which unnecessarily takes a lot of real-estate on the page.

Another quite annoying thing is, it takes forever for Widget Controller to display option window. After using this plugin on about 40 widgets, waiting for this plugin to open its options forever, renders it unworkable. It doesn't work.
