Open Link Host - Firefox Add-ons
« on: November 11, 2008, 09:01:37 PM »
sometimes i come across bloggers who deep link to a program's exe or zip files instead of the page. for those type of link, Open Link Host will come in handy as this add-on allows one to open the link's host in either current window/new window/new tab.

here is an example of what i meant, the link points to the zip file instead of the program's page.
