Just tried it for Chrome!!


Looks very nice. Amazing work LibX team. A totally non-clunky interface
and a very smooth one. 


Will give it a proper go later on.


Best wishes,

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


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



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,
