This technology is unbelievable. Just hit the link and see the details and the introductory video. Here is the direct link to the video (which is also available in the announcement): http://www.vimeo.com/1561578
FF FTW /
link worked for me, looks pretty tite, im sure there will be bugs for now but in the end this should be WIN/WIN for users who can utilize its strenghts
Yeah it's still experimental but it should open up a whole new world for power users.
The website is now back and fully functional.
Euh WTF, this is Awesome!
That was freakin awesome although I probably won't use it.
After giving it an install, it comes in very handy but it develops very bad habits if you go on to use another browser.It does make the web a lot easier to navigate but it doesn't need half the search engines its got, just google would do me.
looks awesome, but im not entirely sure how the commands work. is it like coding?
From what I've experienced so far you just highlight a word, paragraph, image, or combination of the three, input a keyword and then type "this". For example if I highlighted the word "N4G", opened up the window and typed "Wiki this" it would send me to the Wikipedia page for N4G. There are some slightly more complex (and I use that word VERY lightly) commands such as "email this to [contact name]". Which would open up the compose mail page for Gmail (if you have a Gmail account and are logged in) and paste the stuff you highlighted into the right boxes. If you want to liken it to coding imagine it as the easiest programming language ever. It's more like common sense than coding and quite a lot of the more complex commands can be done in more than one way. For example the email example can be done in at least 4 ways according to the help file * "email hello" * "email to chris" * "email hello to chris" * "email to chris hello" will all do pretty much do the same thing.
this is very very cool stuff
Interesting.......i can think of many ways this would benefit ppl with day to day web tasks. It would do away with many firefox extensions and make things like searching and copy+pasting more intuitive and fun. I can see this blossoming into something huge and might be a feature in the next firefox browser once it develops further along.
Being a mac user, I've grown fond of shortcuts and popup access. Now to have it in a web interface? EEE
I was wondering what some of the responses Mozilla would have to IE8 coming out soon.
