Googly, My first firefox add-on

Inspired from my friend Alosh Bennett I also jumped into the world of firefox extensions. Last weekend tried to write a rudimentary URL shortener firefox plug-in called googly. The name is inspired from Alosh’s URL shortener plug-in shortly (which was apparently named so because it uses as the shortening service ). In my case , I am using Google’s url shortening service .


The initial version is build by just writing few lines of javaScript code which shortens the current tab’s url and copies to the clipboard so that user can just paste it in IM window , email or other link sharing medium like twitter and facebook.

I will add more features to googly in future as I figure out more about firefox layouts .Let me know the feedbacks in the add on listing page or in the blog itself.

  6. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that
    I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I
    have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
