After 14 months of no updates, I've finally taken out and dusted off
the poor, neglected Better Flickr Firefox add-on. Almost every single
script was outdated, and the Better backend code has changed quite a
bit in the past year, so this is a big upgrade. As such, I hoped we
could test it out before I submit it to Mozilla Add-ons.

If you have the time and inclination and you're a big Flickr user, a
preview of the new and improved version 0.4 can be found here:

https://secure.ginatrapani.org/workshop/firefox/betterflickr_0.4.xpi

I've overhauled the script names to be more descriptive, reorganized
the tabs, updated script source code to the latest versions, and added
version numbers as well. There's also a new Short Flic.kr URL script
(the impetus for this update), which gives you Twitter-friendly short
URLs on any photo page for easy tweeting or emailing.

Let me know if you have any other Flickr user scripts or styles you'd
like to see in this add-on, or if you run into any troubles testing
the preview.

Thanks for your time!
Gina

Hi Gina,

I've been using Better Flickr for a few days, and everything seems to
work just fine. Thank you for such a neat extension!

Kind regards,

It works great for me (Mac OS 10.5.8, PPC, Firefox 3.5.3). Thanks so
much for continuing to develop it — it's one of my fave add-ons!
