AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey — Add-On information updated on AMO

This blog post in German languageSome of you might have observed that the add-on-page on AMO showed a message “not available for SeaMonkey 2.51” for a while. Actually the add-on installs and works fine, so I updated information, the add-on works fine also for latest Trunk version SeaMonkey 2.51a1.

If you observe a problem please use the support link on the add-on page.

New add-on: “Sidebar Add Custom Tab”

Blogpost Version 2017-02-04 15:41 UTC
This blog post in German languageAnother great tool has been added to AMO Isaac Schemm: “Sidebar Add Custom Tab“. This add-on allows to add new Sidebar Panels for showing Web Pages contents easily with few clicks.

What for?

In few moments the kitchen clock will remind me to close the toilet window.

In few moments the kitchen clock will remind me to close the toilet window.

Most web pages are not very likely for being shown in the sidebar – available width of the sidebar is too small. But some others can be really useful there. Examples:

  • You need a dictionary German Romanian for writing Email? It would be great to have a dictionary-webpage for these languages in the sidebar while you are composing an email.
  • You would like to see whether there is something new in Heise News? It would be great to have …
  • and so on

If you want to show a Web page in the sidebar until now we were reliant to Sidebar Panel repositories with “Add Panel to Sidebar”- scripts, or we had to do some sophisicated proceeding to add a sidebar panel.

Using the new add-on that can be done with few mouse clicks.

Problems

(only few trivial ones)

  • WINDOWS Focus-Loss in the moment when a new Panel becomes added.
  • Some pages (for example my WORDPRESS Reader) do not work, but that probably is a general (Sidebar-) Problem and has nothing to do with the add-on.

Misc

Did we ever have Sidebar-TABs?  I prefer to call them Panels.

Web Pages suitable for Sidebar TABs

SeaMonkey project blog
This unofficial SeaMonkey Blog
German unofficial SeaMonkey Blog
Tagesschau.de
Youtube: not optimum, but if you want to see/listen some music while you are working, it’s fine.
An egg timer like online-stopwatch.com, wich announces end of countdown with a ring tone  (may be there are better ones needing less width?)
Probably several others …

If you know additional suitable web pages or if you know additional information concerning useful sidebar contents, please leave a comment!

Websites not suitable …

Google-Calendar, Facebook,


Other useful sidebar contents:

Additional Sidebar information: I only know Ed Mullens page. Long ago there was a lot of (Netscape-) Sidebars information on DMOZ, nearby all has vanished.

If you know other useful web pages concerning SeaMonkey sidebar please leave a comment.
