    Hi Mumbodog,

    I use Linux Ubuntu 9.10 w/Firefox 3.5.9 and the website does not appear to allow a download, i.e. the website may only work w/Windows Firefox. The plugin does not appear to be available at the standard Firefox plugin website. It might not follow the standard Firefox plugin release procedures.

    You need to click "Download" and scroll to the bottom of the page to see the download link. The download is a "XPI" file. I haven't installed it but it is an interesting extension.

    Peace...

    Hi Tom,

    I only downloaded it, and will have a look at it later, then decide whether to use it or not - depending on whether I think I need it or not.

    Have you used it yet?
