Yesterday I decided that my site could really use a Firefox Add-on. I knew what I wanted, but I honestly had no idea how to do it. So, I went to the Firefox developer site and went to work...

Nearly 7 hours and over 50 revisions later I had the QuickInbox Generator add-on.

Overall, the development of the plugin was actually very fun. It took a lot of searching to figure out how exactly the overlays and stuff work in Firefox, but with only 1 day under my belt I think I have it primarily all figured out. I'm going to be developing a few more add-ons in the near future.

I would REALLY REALLY appreciate it if the NetBuilders community would take a look at my add-on and let me know what they think. Right now it's in what is called the "sandbox." I can nominate it to be released completely to the public (which has many many advantages) once I get a few reviews and downloads. Once that happens when I make new updates they'll be automatically installed on your Firefox and stuff like that.

I will be adding a page to QuickInbox later today or tomorrow that explains the plugin further and links to the page on Firefox's site.


(notice the site used in the screenshot?)

Take a look and let me know what you think

Thanks,
