This graph from Mozilla is worth a thousand words :
undoclosetab by Dorando is a very cool extension that makes you able to recall a closed tab (obviously). Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for Firefox 220.127.116.11, out recently. So I repackaged the enhanced version by Turonah so that Firefox doesn’t cry.
Works for me. Try at own risk.
Download: undoclosetab 20060503.
or, How I Got to Become a Firefox Extension Developer. 🙂
What’s that ?
It allows you select a type & select a string (“mll” for instance) and right-click>last.fmCode>User and you get “[user]mll[/user]”. Idem for an artist name, a tag name etc… You can play with the clipboard submenu too, and also the eXtra one.
I left the BBCode there, so bolding, making links, changing colors, etc. just need a few clicks.
Before you download
OK, I just took the time to try Greasemonkey, and it’s cool as I expected. I started fiddling whith some scripts downloaded at the -well made- central greasemonkey scripts repository, and made the following:
- Last.fm with Google
- Last.fm with Amazon
- Last.fm with Allmusic
- Last.fm titles with Google
- Last.fm titles with Allmusic
You may download them on userscripts.org.
I’m quite happy with them now (though Amazon clutters the charts a tad too much IMHO).
Many thanks to kepp for his help in tracking the glitches & providing solutions.
|A nice little app to allow quick viewing in Firefox of pages you browse with IE. Was quoted in Fred Langa’s excellent newletter.
Note: I recently discovered FirefoxView, that does the same, but is better written (better error handling, etc.) and has the “Open link in Firefox” feature that was in my todo list.
Making it a Firefox extension makes sense, too (except that if you uninstall Firefox, ghost registry entries will remain, but the case is pretty unlikely if you installed this exension :).
In conclusion, I advise you to use FirefoxView rather than ‘View in Firefox’ for IE. I’ll probably discontinue further development of ‘View in Firefox’ for IE, unless someone begs me to. 🙂
Edit 2006-02-28: IE Tab is even smarter than FirefoxView. Check it out!
Edit 2007-02-26: Tried to build the equivalent that calls Opera instead of FF. I didn’t test it so View in Opera for IE v0.1please do and report.
