Changes since version 0.1: less suckage, still works. For no good reason, I was using the function that gets selected text for the builtin “Search web for …”, which only gives you a few hundred characters. Now, you get 2K characters, spread over the title, URL, and the selected text. The BlogThis in the Google toolbar for IE gives you 178 characters less, which worries me more thinking about how they chose that number than that something will go wrong because we use those extra 178 characters.
Oh, and now in Firefox it will appear in the Extension Manager, with an awful-looking icon. If the sight of it annoys you too much, you’ll find it quite easy to track down my email address to send me a better pair (32×32 and 100×100, thank you very much).
Huge thanks to the aptly titled How to write Firefox extensions for the handy build script, and for collecting everything you need to get started (or re-started) doing extensions in one easy-to-steal package.
