My Creations

These are Firefox extensions that I have written.


Chickenfoot is a Firefox extension that puts a programming environment in the browser's sidebar so you can write scripts to manipulate web pages and automate web browsing. In Chickenfoot, scripts are written in a superset of Javascript that includes special functions specific to web tasks.


TargetAlert provides visual cues for the destinations of hyperlinks. For example, it puts an Adobe icon next to links to PDF documents so you are not surprised/disappointed/enraged when you click on a link and it opens Acrobat. See the TargetAlert web site for details on the other features that it provides.


GCalQuickTab provides fast switching between Gmail and Google Calendar by overriding the behavior of the navigation links in the upper-left-hand corner of those webapps.

Google Dominoes

Google Dominoes adds a special type of Google toolbar to Firefox. It is still under development and has not yet been officially released, but you can visit the Google Dominoes web site to see what it is all about, or to download and play with the latest version under development.


FireLuckyBox provides a keyboard shortcut that lets you do an I'm Feeling Lucky query for the text in the Firefox search box. This was the first Firefox extension that I published, and I admit that it was not a revolutionary extension (it was basically a "Hello world" project for myself).
