Franc, a rememberer
A simple extension for Chrome I just made. / Pequeña extensión que acabo de hacer. / Basically the same ol' bookmarklet wrapped in a distinctive ff button. Check it out: https://chrome.google.com/extensi...

Love it! - Jesse Stay
cool! extension's first success! - Franc, a rememberer
Well, not sure it's working :-) I'm running OS X Chromium nightly, and clicking it doesn't seem to do anything. - Jesse Stay
But I like having the FF logo next to my URL bar, so that's a success :-) - Jesse Stay
It's right next to the Facebook logo - Jesse Stay
// EDIT: ok that's messy. here: http://tinypaste.com/6081b Anybody know hoe to make it work on OSx? - Franc, a rememberer
Works fine on Mac OS X 5.0.335 dev channel release. It looks like extensions are disabled on the extensions website and on Chrome internal pages, but if you go to like http://google.com the bookmarklet pops up just fine. You can try to remove the %20 in the action_url string, but removing it didn't seem to affect my usage either way. - Mark Trapp
Good work, Francisco. - Micah
Thanks, Micah. @Goadkicker Super! - Franc, a rememberer
Actually, it seems to work, just wasn't working on the link to the extension. Seems to work fine on other pages though so I think we're good. - Jesse Stay
Great to hear, Jesse. Btw. What does the facebook button do? :-) - Franc, a rememberer
Francisco, here's the Facebook one: https://chrome.google.com/extensi... - from what I hear it was written at a Facebook hackathon by an intern there. - Jesse Stay
I really like the small scrolling bar they styled there. Sweet. - Franc, a rememberer
If you could combine FFcheck with the bookmarklet, that would be very useful - Shey
and friendfeedTranslate - if someone does this, I suggest using kynetx to do it. It will give you one jquery-based language to write extensions with one code base across most browsers: http://kynetx.com - Jesse Stay
*ears perk up* - Micah
Jesse, are you an advisor to kynetx (I see they're based in Lehi)? Do you know what their business model is - have they stated anything as such publicly. It certainly looks interesting. - Micah
Micah, I am not an advisor, nor do I have any vested interest. I just really like what they're doing. Their business model is in building custom apps for brands interested, or in consulting. I'm not sure what other types of deals they do. Their developer platform is free though. You can ask @windley or @fulling on Twitter though and I'm sure they can answer more detailed questions than I'm aware. - Jesse Stay
Of note, @windley wrote the Digital Identity book for O'Reilly, and has a very strong identity background. I fully expect them to go full force into the identity realm with what they're doing. Imagine completely customized context (such as this extension, but even more), through extensions, action cards, and bookmarklets, across all browsers. - Jesse Stay
@Shey do you have a link to ffcheck? never heard of it. EDIT: never mind. http://ffcheck.com ..I think it's doable. ;-) as for ff translate ... - Franc, a rememberer
Lol, if it's doing so, I had no idea. @Slippy - Franc, a rememberer
Wow, just what i needed, thanks Francisco! - Majento
@Slippy ¬¬ haa I should have seen it coming! I'm glad it's useful, Majento. - Franc, a rememberer
cool, but like the bookmarklet doesn't work in recent builds of chrome (e.g. 5.0.375.99) - scott willeke
I'm gonna test that and update. - Franc, a rememberer
what seems to be the issues?, it does work fine in 5.0.375.99 (Build oficial 51029) beta and 6.0 dev channel (windows 7) - Franc, a rememberer
it's not working for me, too. can we solve this problem? - ToMtOm
Yeah, seems to be broken in the current stable version. Clicking the button doesn't do anything. :( I guess it's back to the regular bookmarklet for the time being. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It broke for me too. - Skyler Call from Android
I've been checking it for the past week or so and it only seems to be broken in old installs of chrome. new installs are ok. I dunno what could be causing this. :P - Franc, a rememberer
doesn't work any more: chrome 15.0.874.121 on OS X - благодарю, вас так много
sorry, eugene I've been having trouble to make it work on all installs. are you testing it outside of the chrome extension gallery as well? If you or anyone could help reviewing the background page code, here it is: http://tinypaste.com/6081b - Franc, a rememberer

Shift+"Compose mail" (open a new window) on Gmail hasn't worked for me for the last couple of weeks on different computers/OS.
Does it work for you? - AJ Batac
It does. I am using Google Chrome (Beta Channel) in Windows 7 64-bit. - Skyler Call
It works on my other Gmail with less than 6GB of mails. This particular one doesn't load for me anymore. Wonder if that's the case. :( - AJ Batac
Found a solution! I turned off my chat sound "https://mail.google.com/mail..." now it's working again. :/ - AJ Batac

Looks like Google Health is shutting down in 2012. Wonder what a suitable replacement for that would be.
Why are they shutting down? I have heard of it but never tried it. What good does it do you? - Skyler Call

This season of House is now as boring as all the other medical dramas. It's like the show jumped a shark and the shark jumped another shark.
That one episode in prison was worse than the season that started in a mental institution. Also, the hospital seems rather empty after Taub, Chase, Thirteen, and Cuddy left. - Morton Fox
I believe Taub, Chase will be back. They are signed on for this season. - Eric - Watch Me Now
I liked the mental institution one, but not so much the prison episode. Now, with the ankle monitor, he's TV's Lindsey Lohan. - Eric - Watch Me Now
Its the Moonlighting effect. When the two main characters have gotten together, there is only one or two more seasons left of the show, depending on the producers and actors. - Me
And the first shark had lupus, only it turned out it wasn't lupus, just plain old fin rot. Because it's never lupus. And one of the sharks was just there to teach the audience a moral lesson or something. - Steel Penguin Slippy
Spoiler alert for those of us following on Hulu Plus (episodes are aired eight days late)! - Skyler Call
^That goes for Fringe as well. Both shows are on Fox if you'll notice. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I'm enjoying the two new Dr's but overall if i stopped watching House I don't think I'd be too upset. - Lnorigb
Skyler, aren't episodes available sooner if you're on Hulu Plus? Regular Hulu has an 8-day delay. - Morton Fox
When I'm this invested in a show, I must see it through. - Eric - Watch Me Now
The most recent available episode on Hulu Plus is Charity Case where 13 comes back and gets fired at the end. I haven't seen Taub yet this season. - Skyler Call

Mine still works in Chrome - AJ Batac
I am using Chrome 15.0.874.83 beta-m and Friendfeed Bookmarklet Mock 1.0. What about you? - Skyler Call
14.0.835.202 - AJ Batac
I'm at the same level as AJ, and the bookmarklet is working on mine as well. - Jennifer Dittrich
I have that version of Chrome running on my laptop. It doesn't work there either. I uninstalled the extension, closed Chrome, opened Chrome, reinstalled the extension, and it still doesn't work. Most people at https://chrome.google.com/webstor... are complaining it doesn't work for them. - Skyler Call
Oh, I thought you meant the 'drag to install' bookmarklet, not the extension. *bows out* - Jennifer Dittrich
i have 15.0.874.83 beta-m and mine works, :/ - chaz2b
Could it have broken when I changed my Friendfeed password? Do I need to reconfigure it somehow? - Skyler Call
Uninstall that Chrome extension and just use this -> http://friendfeed.com/share... - AJ Batac
(yep, thats the one i use; ty mr batac) - chaz2b
That works. I don't like using the Bookmarks toolbar though. Extensions are better because they sit up in the corner and don't take up much space. - Skyler Call

bah.. having an old issue I've not seen in awhile; eyesight focus is getting stuck up close, not wanting to focus back out. stupid brain #fb
brainz iz contrary - MoTO Moca Blend
Mine used to do that a lot. A friend recommended exercising my eyes by keeping focussed on my finger as I move it towards and away from my face. I'd spend a couple of minutes doing it each morning, and in a couple of weeks it stopped happening. I don't know whether it's a real thing or not. It may have been a purely psychological effect. - Steel Penguin Slippy
Scary. I have had that happen a few times but it doesn't last longer than one second. - Skyler Call

I probably won't use iMessage or Find My Friends or Facetime because they're so Apple-only. But I do like the idea of location sharing just before a meeting, so people can see if I'm stuck in traffic or whatever. I'd want it hooked into Google Calendar, not into Apple's ecosystem… - Amit Patel
