Performancing Blog Extension Updated

Noticed a little red “Update Available” in the corner of my Performancing editor/extension this morning. Clicked it, reinstalled, et voila. My favourite update (and, really, the only one I’ve noticed so far) is that the “Performancing” item in the context menu is no longer at the top (where “Back” should be and has been for the last, oh, forever). Thank god.

Update: Also included in this update is the ability to add Technorati tags to posts. Not the greatest UI decision I’ve seen in my life, but the feature is there at least. I’m a shade wary of feature-creep for this extension, but so long as the UI is finessed so it all works nicely, it’ll be ok.

In other Performancing-related news, Asa tells me that the SpellBound spell-checker extension integrates seamlessly with Performancing. I haven’t tested it yet (I’ve always had issues relying on spellcheckers), but you should check it out.

Update: The version of SpellBound you need to make this work can be found at this MozillaZine forum post. I’ve installed it and it’s awesome — spellcheck as you type in text areas. Super slick!

Also: the Performancing guys are having an ad competition of their own: Hey, we’re not rich, but if someone can come up with a kick-ass logo/ad for us, we’ll happily dole out a $500 cash prize, and if we use it in the app itself, give you credit for that on the about tab, naturally 🙂

  1. Performancing is a nice little add-in. For an advanced blog editor, check out RocketPost:

  3. That’s nice, but I use a Mac. If I wanted a blogging tool that wasn’t a Firefox extension, I’d use Ecto which is available for both Mac and Windows, and is very slick (I bought a license).

    Thanks for the plug.
    I’m glad you like it, there are still a lot of improvements that need to happen. But please rest assure we are 100% against feature creep.

    Having said that there are some obvious additions that need to be made (trackback, draft support, etc.) But I’m really hoping we can do it in a way that the current UI stays put, or only gets better. Last thing we want is to cram crap on the UI.

    I would actually like to simplify it even more, while still offering advanced features.

    Anyhow, thanks again, and any input (UI or not) is most welcome!

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Cheers
