Apologies for my absence on the list and the lack of updates to the Better extensions. I don't use Firefox on a daily basis anymore, and I maintain these projects in my spare time, and I've been busy with other work. I know there are a lot of features which need to be updated or plain just don't work. I hope to revisit the project and clean things up this month, and offer a Chrome version as well at some point down the road, hopefully in the first half of 2012.
Short answer: this project isn't dead, just been on hold for awhile. If there are any open source developers available and willing to help me issue updates on a more timely basis, please let me know.
Thanks for your patience.
