I know this will not help to cure us – LumberJocks addicts. It’s like your personal assistant and it installs directly into your browser. It alerts you about new content posted on LumberJocks and provides you with the handy shortcut links to your favorite site. It even features Feel the Pulse button and local weather forecasts… our brand new LumberJocks toolbar:

now we can fill our addiction, read all the newest projects/blogs/comments at LJ, AND post our own stuff and still have time to head to the shop—- this will really save us some time online.
Nice job.

Since it’s in Firefox, will it be coming for Camino? Safari? Not complaining, just askin.

Martin a suggestion. When you pull down the what’s new button and then go to one of the next buttons IE Projects, Blogs etc When you give us the title it would be nice to see who the author was also.

I, too, use Safari but my daughter prefers Firefox I guess and so it was already running on my Mac. Now I’m torn—my Safari or LJ’s personal assistant?? (not a difficult choice really, since most of my online time is spent here at LJ :)

I think I’m gonna like this…. Now I’ll know what’s really new everywhere – that is a very cool thing… though I suspect it won’t clean up if I check up on Y’all while I”m at work.

I like Karson’s suggestion to include the Jocks name next to the project list in the pull down if poss. but are you beta testing somethign else new Karson? Radio stations?

Seven installations total so far ;)

Good idea about the author info.. however I’m not the original developer of the toolbar.. I’m just customizing it for LumberJocks.. so I will ask about this.

I’ve temporarily removed Radio because it was not very stable. However if there is demand for the radio I can bring it back. Let me know. It is radio component directly in the toolbar.

Thanks for the feedback!

that’s his evil side that he tries not to show us—getting us hooked and keeping us here and all the time making it look like he is supporting our woodworking dreams. Oh yah… evil I say, evil

Caliper: I’ve got Google toolbar and have not noticed any problems, EXCEPT when I installed it Google said someone was trying to change my default search engine and wanted to know if that was OK.

hmmm…. in the past hour that I’ve been checking out “what’s new” a few new blogs have been added, but haven’t shown up there yet. restarting firefox, hitting refresh in the subcategories didn’t do it. Now to check out the pulse to see what else is “New”...
