New Firefox Extension Available!

That's right folks. I finally made a Firefox extension that allows you to simply highlight some text on a Web page and add it to your QuoteBoard. Currently, the extension requires that you are logged into the site before you can really have fun with it. If things go well, I might make that part a bit easier in the future.

This new toy has only been in the works for a couple days, between my "real" jobs and such, so there might be a problem here or there. If you stumble across any of these, please, please, please comment and let me know what you experienced!

Thanks, and enjoy!


Just download the extension and install it with Firefox's Add-on manager.

My software rocks!


Once you have installed the extension, make sure you restart your browser completely. Once you do, you will have several ways to use QuoteGrabber:

  1. In the "context" menu (or the menu that comes up when you right-click on a Web page). There should be an item called "Add selected text to your QuoteBoard"
  2. From the "Tools" menu. There should be an item at the bottom called "Grab Selected Text..."
  3. From a toolbar. You'll probably have to add the button manually if you want this option. To do that, just open the "View" menu, go to "Toolbars", and then find the customize item. Somewhere in the list that appears you should be able to find a quote icon. Drag that to one of your toolbars.

Now that you know how to access the extension, just highlight some text and use one of the methods described above to add it to your QuoteBoard!

Note: Again, for the time being, you should already be logged into QuoteBoards in order to make this extension useful.
