What was that new addon for firefox?
« on: November 14, 2008, 02:13:03 PM »
I read about some add on, Where you can add maps and find it by highlighting it and typing -map or something. I can't find it on the forums and won't find it in history.

I haven't heard about this, where did you hear about it, as I would have though that the best source of information.

Edit: A 10 second talk to my friend google returns this, http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=firexox+add-on+map, see if you can find what your looking for there.

Nah it's not that one. It's like a blue box comes up in the top left corner and you type in a command

Looks like you will have to find where you read about it and see if the source is listed or search the firefox add-ons for any map related add-on.

Looks interesting, though a bit early in the development cycle version 0.1 for me.

Also - https://wiki.mozilla.org/Labs/Ubiquity.

Being a dial-up user also anything to do with maps tend to take forever to load, I could almost draw it faster ;D

Upgrade from firefox no way would I mess with a stable version of firefox to integrate something I'm unlikely to use very frequently, especially when this project is so early in development.

WARNING: Ubiquity is still in flux. This is a 0.1 release. The API is likely to change drastically in later revisions. While this means that what you write today might not work next week, it also means that by writing commands and giving us your feedback, you'll be able to directly influence the direction that Ubiquity goes.

The rest of this page documents the command developer API as it currently stands in the latest released version of Ubiquity, 0.1.1. However, if you have the latest source checkout, then you'll have a newer API with some additional features not in 0.1.1.

Do you think I would be sitting waiting for pages to load if I could easily get broadband, I'm over 9KM from the exchange and most ISPs won't even consider that viable. One will but won't guarantee anything above 125kbps but they are quite happy to charge full rates for their 8mbps service.

Whilst this would be faster than what I have assuming it works, I hate being ripped off paying full rate for a service 1/64th of the theoretical maximum (up to 8mbps) that you pay for.
