I found out recently about Ubiquity and have fell in love with it ever since.  It’s an extension for Mozilla’s Firefox browser and it adds tonnes of functionality to it.  First take a quick look at the video below.

Ubiquity for Firefox from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

It thoroughly changes the way we use the web browser and I believe will appeal to not only geeks but to everyone else.  At first glance, it might be weird to work with command prompts when most of us grew up with point-and-click (not me).  But the beauty of Ubiquity is that it understands everyday commands such as “email” or “translate”.  (There is still a lot to be done but even at version 0.1.5, it’s already very powerful).

If you want to try it out, (which I highly recommend) go now to Mozilla Lab’s Introducing Ubiquity.  If you can’t find the big download button, click here to install latest version (until the link dies).

And to show how easy it is to write your own commands, I’ve written one especially for my lovely girlfriend who is stuck in Geneva.  Narning you can click here.
