Do a Blogsearch Instead

I wrote a simple Chickenfoot script to add a "Blogs" link among the "Images/News/Groups" links on Google Web Search pages to make it easy to Search blogs instead.

New Version of Chickenfoot (Finally!)

We finally got the new version of Chickenfoot out the door: [Release Notes] I'm really excited because we finally released our include() command which lets you import other JavaScript libraries into a namespace. Considering that JavaScript doesn't have native support for namespaces, I think this is a pretty big deal.

Oh, and for you Greasemonkey fans, we basically made it as easy as humanly possible to create Greasemonkey scripts in Chickenfoot. We provide a greasemonkey.js library and the option to create a new script pre-populated with the code: include("greasemonkey.js"). It doesn't get much easier than that.

Embarassing GCalQuickTab bug Fixed!

Thanks to Jon Stritar for approving GCalQuickTab 0.2.1 on short order -- there was a bad bug where typing l in the rich-content editor in Gmail would switch to Calendar instead of inserting the character. No more.

GCalQuickTab 0.2

Today GCalQuickTab 0.2 was approved and posted on Mozilla Update. The big change is the introduction of keyboard shortcuts -- now you can use g to switch from Gmail to Calendar and l to switch from Calendar to Gmail. Also, in response to a user request, GCQT now directs you to the https version of the site instead of the http one.

Introducing GCalQuickTab

I apologize that I haven't contributed to the Changeblog in quite some time, but now that my project finally launched, I should have some more free time. In all the excitement, I even made a new Firefox extension, GCalQuickTab, to take advantage of our new product. It was pretty easy extension to write (but only after prototyping it in Chickenfoot, of course!)
