New FoXRI Out Now

Monday, August 21st, 2006

I’ve just released version 1.1 of FoXRI – XRI extension for Firefox (and Flock!).

This version features an XRDS explorer that renders an XRI (I-name or I-number) in a nice user interface (see screenshot below).

Go install it at xri://=wil (oh you’re not XRI-enabled yet? No problem, go here instead).


Under the hood

The extension installs an XUL overlay that autocorrects an I-name / I-number in shorthand notation (e.g. =wil or @neustar) to the full version with “xri://” prefix. This is only for XRIs entered on the URL bar. Everything else is left untouched and functions as per normal.

At the same time, it installs an XRI protocol handler (XPCOM component implemented in Javascript) that takes care of resolving the XRI. For “bare” XRI – no path or query e.g. xri://=wil , it fetches the XRDS document from the xri.net proxy and renders it in HTML. Otherwise, the XRI is simply prefixed with http://xri.net/ and hands it off to the normal HTTP handler.

Flock: The web browser for you and your friends.

Just downloaded flock and am totally lovin’ it. Being able to manage my flickr and photobucket account with drag-n-drop and a feed reader that rocks plus all host of goodies tucked in unobtrusive corners are just the beginning. Buit on the Firefox engine, Flock supports all the extensions that are built for Firefox.

This post was created using Flock’s built-in blog composer – what can I say?

I’m totally flocked!
