Extensions and more coming to Firefox 3

Filed under
Moz/FF

Firefox 3 development keeps going on and more details of what features are at least being considered for inclusion keep appearing as well.

A major topic is the revision of some currently available extensions for their possible inclusion in Firefox 3. The list of candidates includes Print Hint (a printable version notifier), URL Fixer (web address typos) and Table Sort (sort and filter web tables).

Two more, Locationbar2 and Content Preferences can be considered proof of concept. The first one aims to make the location bar a more informative resource to prevent phishing attacks by highlighting the domain name while providing easier navigation within a web site. An ongoing discussion on what is needed can be followed at Google Groups. Content Preferences is an experiment on saving some settings for a specific web site. Currently it only saves text size but I guess dictionary language, block images, enable JavaScript, etc. could be set as well in the future.
