Mozilla Ubiquity — They weren’t kidding when …

I use firefox (who doesn’t ?) and every once in a while, i look for extensions that might be useful, or may improve my browsing experience, or just be plain fun !.

However, this last time I did that, it was a completely different experience. I saw something which reminded me that firefox is not just any ol’ browser. It is the browser.

The good folks at Mozilla are not kidding when they encourage you to “recalim the web”, they aren’t just advertising when they ask “Can a browser really make the Web better?” and they definitely are not being unrealistic lofty idealists when declare that “The Internet should enrich the lives of individual human beings.”

Here is proof — The Mozilla Ubiquity extension.

I do not want to even attempt describing this extension because I know, I’ll fail miserably. Instead I urge you to watch this introduction.

I seriously think, things like this will affect the way people interact. It is not just about this particular extension, but what will follow when mash-ups like this become common place. We will take control and truly relaim our own personal web.

Mozilla is doing to the web, what linux did to Operating Systems ! What do you think ?
