Google releases Firefox extensions

Google has released Firefox Extensions

So far, we have a toolbar (looks to be the same as the IE toolbar), a “Send to mobile” option (that only works in the US), and Google Suggests for the inbuilt firefox search bar.

Nifty!

According to Google’s firefox toolbar page the system requirements are:

. Windows XP/2000 SP3+, Mac OS X 10.2+, or Red Hat Linux 8.0+

. Firefox 1.0+

Presumably this will work on other distros as well…

It’s nice that they still have a link to ” . Googlebar, an open-source toolbar written by Google fans”

The page above also contains a link to a forum for users to discuss the bar. Useful information gleaned from the forum already: it does work on ubuntu, but isn’t hugely pretty.

Hrm. Interesting google ads on the side of that last page. It’s a page talking about a Google toolbar for Mozilla Firefox on Ubuntu Linux, but Google has chosen to display this:
