IBM Connections Toolbar for Firefox is now open source!

It took a little while but we have gotten approval to open source the IBM Connections Toolbar for Firefox! For the open source version, the images used have been replaced with Creative Commons Attribution licensed images but other than that the toolbar is the same toolbar that is currently available for download on Greenhouse (and we plan to replace that version with the open source version shortly).

The toolbar will be available from OpenNTF shortly but the source code is already online at GitHub:-

Permit Cookies for Firefox 9

Daniel Lindkvist's Permit Cookies extension for Firefox is a great little add-on that makes it easy to do cookie white-listing in Firefox. It is one of my favourite little Firefox extensions but unfortunately Daniel Lindkvist doesn't seem to be updating it for new versions of Firefox.

I've forked vrillusions/permit-cookies on GitHub and bumped the version for Firefox 9.

My fork of the code includes the binary for the Firefox 9 compatible XPI: pcookie_0_6_2_3.xpi

IBM Connections Toolbar for Firefox

For last year's Hackday, Gearóid Ó Treasaigh, Ciarán Ó hUallacháin and I created a Firefox toolbar for IBM Connections. It is still going strong and we recently added Firefox 7 support to it!

Hopefully we'll get around to releasing it to the general public on Lotus Greenhouse or presenting it in a developerWorks article sometime soon. If only we weren't so busy!
