Netscape 9: Linkpad

In my endeavor to get bookStack included in the official Mozilla addons repository I was told to accumulate some user reviews. As a result of talking to some users I found out the upcoming version (currently in beta) of the Netscape browser, Netscape 9, has a very similar feature to the one bookStack provides.

The main difference is they use a sidebar and do not (from what I could tell, haven’t tried it myself yet) give direct access to the stored items (eg, via the bookmarks manager).

So I’m currently working toward a version of bookStack that has a sidebar so that people who want Linkpad for Firefox can get it.

It should be ready in about a week.

  • That will come eventually. I will probably look at FF3 in the next week or so. I’m just about (literally 24 hrs) to release bookStack 0.3.0 which is a lot cleaner both inside and out.

    I haven’t had the chutzpah to look at FF3’s code yet out of fear of how much refactoring I may need to undertake to bring bookStack into its fold. That said, my basic understanding is that while it will take some work, the code is more accessible, specifically some of the parts bookStack’s internals are reliant upon.

    Thanks for the note, the best I can tell you is soon.
