Phil Ringnalda on Firebird extensions
15th June 2003
Phil Ringnalda writes about Firebird extensions:
Don’t get me wrong: Firebird by itself is a wonderful browser. Just the standard tabbed browsing, so you can easily switch between several different web pages without the distracting context switch of changing entire windows, and “Bookmark all tabs in a folder” plus “Open in tabs” in bookmark groups will make a huge difference in the way you use the web. But adding extensions (which is as simple as clicking a link, then an OK button or three, and restarting the browser) gives you the added features that not everyone needs, but that will save tons of aggrevation for people like us who live on the web.
Phil goes on to describe a number of useful extensions for power browsers, some of which I am already using and some of which I’m about to install. Like Phil, I wish the documentation for creating extensions for both Firebird and Mozilla was more readily available; I’d love to mess around with extensions but I just don’t have the time to dig through the many pieces of out-of-date documentation.
