Firefox Extensions

Contents


A list of extensions for the FireFox web browser, which detect or extract microformats.

See user-interface for ways in which extensions could or do handle microformats.

Current

BlueOrganiser

Operator

Operator has rapidly found favour with microformat developers (not least for its functions as a validator) and end-users. It provides an architecture for microformat parsing which is likely to be incorporated into the core of future versions of Firefox.

Latest release: 0.9

Web Cards

Generic

While these extensions include no microformat-specific tools, the can be of use to microformat publishers (or advanced users).

Glossary of Terms

Gez Lemon's Glossary of Terms displays values from ABBR (and ACRONYM) elements, by listing them at the foot of the page. This extension does not work with Firefox 3, as it does not provide secure updates.

Web Developer

The Web Developer extension has several features which greatly aid microformat publishers, not least the ability to display class, ID, object and abbr values in-line.

XqUSEme

Performs W3C-standard XQuery in Firefox. XQuery at its simplest is XPath, but allows more powerful reshaping of XML (cycling through, sorting, joining sources, etc.)--essentially SQL for XML (though also with some scripting power built in as well). XqUSEme uses Firefox's own parsing (and a few tricks) to clean up poorly-formed HTML in addition to XML.

Newest version (not out of the sandbox as of Aug. 20) supports Greasemonkey-like application of XQueries to specific sites, enabling potential sharing and reuse.
