No one? Including the one who suggested participation?

in my club we follow the principle of T.E.A.M.: Toll Ein Anderer Macht's. This roughly translates to "Great, someone else is doing it". Well, we refer to it in a more ironic or cynic way...

Anyway, I doubt we will have to wait for the DC Toolbar for very much longer. And if we are lucky it can be rebranded for other forums using SMF...

Go TEAM go!  ;)

Of all those extensions I only use Fast Dial. I saw this first in opera and very quickly got used to it.

There is a similar extension named Speed Dial. One will have to try both and see which works better for oneself.

Fast DialSpeed Dial.

I have taken up Homepage Startup
- with both Maxthon and Firefox.

Maybe *someone* can and will translate this short essay, 'cause I can't:

Quote from: in Danish
Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.

Der var fire personer som hed Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.
Der var et vigtigt stykke arbejde, som skulle gøres, og Alle blev bedt om at gøre det.
Alle troede at Nogle nok skulle gøre det. Enhver kunne have gjort det, men Ingen gjorde det. Så brokkede Nogle sig over det, fordi det var Alles opgave. Alle mente at Enhver kunne gøre det, men Ingen indså at Alle ville lade være med at gøre det.
Det endte med at Alle skældte Nogle ud for, at Ingen gjorde hvad Enhver kunne have gjort.

In my humble opinion,  http://www.piclens.com/site/firefox/win/ should be in that list right at the top.

It's very impressive. Way faster than I expected something like this to be (esp. sitting inside Firehog)
I only wish:
- It would be enabled for all sites and not just a chosen few.
- There was a way to easily save images (big drawback this, unless I missed something.)

They are working on it, but I still think we'll have to wait a while longer for it. I'm just guessing here, but perhaps it will be available with the release of the FF 3.0 compatible version? At least I hope so, because Piclens makes DeviantArt in particular a whole lot easier and faster to use :)

I just tried it, lashiec, and while it doesn't compare to opera's sidebar, it's still quite interesting!

Yes, I know that, but All in One Sidebar it's not a newcomer (quite the contrary), and it's not a very slick extension IMO (at least when I tried it about two or three months ago)

I absolutely agree with you.
