urledit firefox extension project page is up.

I put up a project page for the new urledit extension. It includes download links and a screencast demo.


Firefox URL Editor extension ready.

Last week, I posted about a new firefox extension I was working on that would let you edit the contents of the urlbar more easily. Well, I have good news. It's alive.

The current incarnation is very basic, but I have some ideas for how to extend it in the future. I won't go into that now.

This extension adds a menu item to the context menu in the url bar labeled 'Edit URL'. This will bring up a dialog box with a table of key-value pairs listed. You can edit, add, or delete entries. Clicking 'OK' will modify the url based on your changes. It automatically unescapes values and re-escapes them later.
