After posting a review of Twitbin last week, I got a lot of people e-mailing me to check out another favorite Twitter tool in Firefox called TwitterFox. This add-on for Firefox notifies you of your friends’ status on Twitter.
Isn’t that what Twitbin did? Yes, but Twitbin lived in your sidebar. TwitterFox lives in your status bar. The ever-so-small icon in the status bar will notify you when your friends update their own Twitter profiles.
Some of the features added to TwitterFox 1.7.6 include:
- Supported Firefox 3.1b2
- Added a context menu to each tweets which has: copy, re-tweet, open this tweet in new tab , delete tweet
- Auto extract is.gd and bit.ly links.
- Added Mark all as read menu item to main context menu.
- Increased contrast of background color of read/unread messages.
- Added in-reply-to-status-id parameter for status update.
- Added da-DK, th-TH, vi-VN, ar-SA, ar, and kw-GB translations.
- Bug fixes.
