Just given both the chrome and firefox editions a spin and I love the new
untrusive UI .. It picked up my edition during post install and so far works
like a charm

Subject: [LibX] LibX Prototype


As everyone knows, we are currently developing LibX 2.0, and we would like
users to try out a prototype so we can get feedback of the new design.  This
prototype is only available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.


You can download the latest LibX prototype at these locations:

http://libx.org/releases/ff/libx2-20100716.xpi (Firefox)

http://libx.org/releases/gc/libx2-20100716.crx (Chrome)


Please note that for Firefox, if you currently have a LibX edition
installed, you should either 1) create a new profile for testing the
prototype, or 2) uninstall the LibX edition before installing this



We hope that installation of your LibX edition is intuitive, but here's a
brief overview of the installation procedure:


After downloading the LibX plugin for either Chrome or Firefox, you should
see a button labeled LibX 2.0 appear to the right of the address bar; this
is the LibX button that will replace the LibX toolbar.  There are two ways
obtain a specific edition for your installation:


1. Manually find your edition: Click the LibX button to open a popup
containing a search field.  Type the name of your library's edition, then
select it from the autocompletion dropdown.  Make sure the information shown
matches your edition, then click "Load this edition".


2. Automatically install your edition using autosensing: From the LibX
Edition Builder, go to either your edition's download page (where you would
normally download your edition-specific plugin), or your edition's test page
(where you would test changes made from the edition builder).  Click the
LibX button.  The edition should automatically be detected and loaded.



As this is only a prototype, a number of features (such as context menus and
proxy support) have not yet been included.  However, everything that has
been implemented so far should be robust.  Please let us know if there are
any bugs or oddities--however minor they may be.  And, of course, we'd like
to hear your feedback on the new design in general.


Thank you,
