Heck!
Plugins in FF are like Proxo in web browsing. If you can program, you can have a plugin for nearly anything [including, say, a Proxo-clone over firefox]... They already have egg boiling plugins, and pretty soon you can have tea too!
Just thinking... Doesn't, in a fashion, that plugin behave as a simple hypertext renderer [like Proxomitron to some extent?... even though it does less than what one Proxo filter would?]

I don't suggest anyone to use FF... those that DO use FF may benefit from the above mentioned filter.

Obviously, you haven't seen the firefox plugins page, have you?
The official word is, of course, different... "Extensions" ... they call them. Helps remove the confusion that comes from calling them plugins [so it means I was erroneously referring to an extension as a plugin]

Yep, familiar with the 'dead fox' plugins page...

And had to revisit, revisit, revisit, and revisit EVERY time (or so it seemed) that the 'dead fox' went from one version to the next to the next... Was just a HUGE waste of MY time, IMO...


Regardless, the 'dead fox' is good for some...
Sleipnir is good for others...

And even IE seems to be good for what is it, 80% of the market?
Then what, the 'dead fox' for 15%?

And Sleipnir down around what, 0.5%?

Is it possible that I could inveigle you to start using some synonyms for 'dead'? [beatdown] Pretty please with Proxo on top? :P At my age, constantly being reminded about what's coming far too soon is starting to make me a bit nervous. [unsure] Howzabout 'lifeless', 'comatose', 'Eiger sanctioned', or my all time favorite, 'kinetically challenged'. [lol] Thanks. Cheers

Plugin, extension, enhancement, I don't care what the flavor of the day is, I stand by my earlier diatribe. And yes, just because one can program an extension to do a job doesn't mean that one should, should one? Ever hear the old saying about using an elephant gun to kill a house-fly? Highly applicable here.

To put a twist on another old saying (I don't pee in your ashtray, please don't throw your butts in my urinal), we could adopt the slogan: "Proxo doesn't surf the web, browsers shouldn't filter the web." [blink] I like that. Anybody else got one?

How 'bout this?

Since 'the fox' USED TO BE 'the bird' (you know, as in 'the middle finger'), how 'bout I refer to it as "the bird turd"?

Works for me... Smile!
