  • Mozilla Labs Ubiquity

    This looks like an awesome extension for Firefox. Just watch the example video.

    http://labs.mozilla.com/2008/08/introducing-ubiquity/

    Today we’re announcing the launch of Ubiquity, a Mozilla Labs experiment into connecting the Web with language in an attempt to find new user interfaces that could make it possible for everyone to do common Web tasks more quickly and easily.

    The overall goals of Ubiquity are to explore how best to:
    • Empower users to control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.)
    • Enable on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyone–not just Web developers–to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)
    • Use Trust networks and social constructs to balance security with ease of extensibility.
    • Extend the browser functionality easily.

        Curse you Jmaker I was coming in here to post this.

        I installed it and it's a pretty neat system. It definitely is in the early development stages but it has a ton of potential.

        I like the concept of coming across something cool on the web and being able to seamlessly send information from that web page to a gmail contact.

        Note that the "trusted networks" feature is not in the release yet so you have to really trust the new command that you want to install since it gives complete control of your browser to the script.

          This is amazing. I think the command line-ish interface will limit the popularity of this though.

            In time it probably won't be 100% controlled by command lines. The most used features will probably get buttons or something and the less used ones will still be used by command lines. Can't even think of everything this thing could do when it reaches 1.0

              I've had it installed for a few days now but haven't actually gotten around to using it. Guess I'll get stumped with the interface in about a week.
