    VERY finger friendly web browser interface

    I have been using Firefox or a while in my car and loved it or it's stability and power against popups etc... BUT the main thing that bothered me the most was the "unfriendliness" of the browser's commands!

    after many, many searches round the net i found this:



    The sole advantage of this is that it is simply a Firefox plugin, so the most crucial features are kept...

    I also like the keyboard that pops up (with pretty decent ui) that responds by highlighting the pressed key like any recent smartphone/pocket PC would do



    Beware, it is still in an early stage and you are required to request an invite from the website here to get the add-on. The video is quite old (december '09) so i am pretty sure that some of the bugs have been fixed. There should be absolutely no issue for anyone who already used FF embedded in a front-end

    Also the "grab and drag" plugin for firefox would be needed, its mentioned in the vid

    I believe it is well worth giving a try... has anyone tried it yet?


    i'm waiting for my invite

    Wow this looks pretty great!

    Tried it on my home pc and it works pretty good

    2 things i noticed :
    1.I don't think you can set your own websites on the quick access page , You can only choose from a list
    2.When you press Quit , Its just disables the plugin not exiting firefox.. Also there isn't any quick Quit button

    You don't need to wait , Here is a Direct Link :
