Firefox Extensions – ScribeFire

Posted by: Rea Maor In: FireFox Related - Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

ScribeFire is a Firefox extension that is an integrated blogging tool that lets you blog from Firefox itself. Not just an HTML editor, it’s a “WYSIWYG” rich text editor which can do all of the standard text editing functions. How easy is it to use? I installed it just five minutes ago, and I’m blogging in it right now!

ScribeFire is the next generation in in-browser blogging interfaces. It has an account wizard for easy set-up. It supports the blogging platforms WordPress, Typepad, LiveJournal, Windows Live Spaces, Performancing, Jeeran, Movable Type, Drupal, Textpattern, Roller, MetaWeblog API, and Blogger. That’s a lot of platforms, but if you have something not on the list, you can always click the source code view button and simply copy-paste it into whatever posting scheme you have.

ScribeFire also gives you the ability to save note files without posting, giving you a pop-up note pad for collecting links, images, and quotes. It also saves a post history so you can access previous posts for editing and republishing. I found this tool to be very simple to use, being that rare balance of just enough features without being too many and without making a big processor-hogging pest of itself.

I’ve also been pounding on it every way I can find and haven’t broken it yet! If all you need text editing for is to blog, you just might delete your Word editor after installing ScribeFire! 🙂
