AjaxWord is your friend
@ 20:00:08

AjaxWord is a new project by Michael Robertson [1]. A little bit of Ajax, a little bit of XUL and here we go with a nearly similar looking Word.

Firefox and Pop-ups
@ 13:43:33

Occasionally while browsing with Firefox some Ads pop up. With the help of Petes settings one should be able to block these few [1].

SVG in Firefox
@ 10:15:18

To be able to have SVG support in Firefox on Windows I had to move the NPSVG6.dll from the SVG Viewer 6.0 plugins directory to the Firefox plugins directory. A quick look at about:plugins revealed the available SVG support afterwards.

Tidy extension for Firefox
@ 09:38:16

Amazing, how many site come with HTML warnings - detected by HTML Tidy [1] directly running in Firefox. It helped me instantly to clean up the code while I was working on a new page.

Google search plugin based on XMLHttpRequest?
@ 00:03:07

Bertrand today told me about Google Suggest (Beta) [1] and just right now I was wondering if out there someone already implemented a search plugin for Firefox that makes use of XMLHttpRequest [2]. Chregu [3] called it LiveSearch and that is what drives this blog's search engine too ;)

Firefox search plugin für Bundesgerichtsentscheide
@ 12:27:56

Für Firefox habe ich ein search plugin [1] geschrieben, welches das Durchsuchen von Bundesgerichtsentscheiden [2] nach bestimmten Begriffen erleichtert.

Update: Für die Suchmaschine Lawsearch [3] - betrieben durch Weblaw GmbH und basierend auf Technologien von Juleg GmbH - habe ich nun auch ein Firefox search plugin geschrieben. Ich stehe weder mit der einen, noch mit der anderen Unternehmung in irgend einer geschäftlichen Beziehung, kann aber deren Dienstleistungen und Produkte durchaus empfehlen ;)

John towards U3
@ 20:31:11

John Haller [1] has done a remarkable job to let Thunderbird, Firefox and Sunbird as well as NVU run directly from a USB stick. I have some doubts to transport my mails around on a USB stick. Maybe Sunbird? Still not sure. There is a calendar on my mobile phone, which has no caldav yet, but let's wait and see ;)

As the computers seem to become smaller too, the fancy stuff above gets even more relativated. Saying this, I have the new Apple mini in mind, which I saw today [2]. Nearly a "PC" to fit in the pocket (PIP) or a small bag (PIB) ;) Nevertheless, definitely enough resources to run Thunderbird, Firefox and Sunbird at once.

Mozilla Thunderbird and OPML
@ 22:57:42

By default Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 does not have OPML support. It does now here, as I followed Dougal Campbell's howto [1]. Great.

CSS to style images
@ 19:51:52

For a moblog project I recently worked with CSS to resize the images automatically. That could be achieved by adding a "width:80%" property to the style definition. With images at a low resolution this leads to a ugly looking images when viewed with high resolution screens. So I introduced the "max-width" property to specify a maximum width of an image:
.myImg img {
height: 80%;
width: 80%;
min-width: 50px
max-width: 350px;
}
The images resize now directly with the browser window. The browser used was Firefox 0.8. There has been reported a problem with konqueror without the *-with properties, so please let me know, if the min-width property helped to resolve the problem of hidden images.

Firefox RSS reader for Atom feeds
@ 00:00:04

The Firefox compatible RSS reader plug-in [1] does already handle Atom feeds.
The feeds are being handled as conventional bookmarks. By pressing View>Siedbar>RSS Reader one will get a list of channels and in a lower window a separate list of item titels. The best part is the overview of the aggregated post. One can apply a custom CSS to it.

aggreg8 - reading RSS in mozilla
@ 09:27:50

aggreg8 [1] is a Mozilla plug-in. The RSS feed reader runs in a separate window or in a Mozilla tab. It is a real light-weight tool, offering all needed to show, what RSS is good for.

Update: Forgot to add the "via" [2] ;-)

MozPHP - running PHP in Mozilla
@ 10:05:09

MozPHP [1] is a Mozilla PHP integration package. With MozPHP you can execute PHP scripts in Mozilla directly without the need for a local HTTP server.

Currently the integration is one way, i.e. it is not possible to access Mozilla internals from PHP scripts. This may change in the future but there are no concrete plans for this.
This reminds me of an earlier server-less approach by Scriptviewer [2] dated back to 2001. As far as I can see MozPHP only installs on Windows and Linux but not yet on Mac OS X. A full crossplatform integration would probably be nescessary to make MozPHP interesting for CD-ROM distributions of PHP applications. MozPHP and Sqlite would make a nice couple too, especially for distributable but offline use.

Tabbrowser Extension for Mozilla
@ 10:58:59

The Tabbrowser Extension by Piro offers some extra features for the tab handling [1]. You do not need to install the japanese language package. I really like to move around the tabs and arrange them.
