There’s a new ‘extension’ for FireFox called Performancing. It offers bloggers a way to easily write, edit and post to their various blogs right from within FireFox. You are supposed to be able to use it with Blogger, WordPress.com blogs, and the WP blogs you’ve installed on your own domains (just to name a few; others mentioned are live journal, and Windows Live the MSN space replacement).
I’ve tested it on one of the WP’s I installed on my server, which is updated to the latest version 2.0.4, but I get a user/password error message. After reading the Performancing.com forums, I think it might be necessary to set up the ‘blogging by email’ function within WP for this to work.
I had no problem what-so-ever setting this up to work here on WordPress.com though! With all the new functionality of the latest WP, I’m not really sure I’m going to take the time to set up my WP installed blogs to use this handy dandy editor with. Since Windows Live took over MSN spaces, I haven’t been able to log into that blog, so that’s not even an option right now.
To be honest, I’ve tweaked my own blogs so much that I probably wouldn’t use this editor much for those, being they are commercially driven. However, for my many personal blogs hosted on blogging platforms, I do really like the functionality of this handy little FireFox blog editor. Nice job.
