Have a good firefox extension idea?
Eric Hamiter, author of several FireFox extensions is soliciting ideas for his next extension:
Lets have a brainstorming session. Ive been tinkering around with a few old ideas that are going nowhere, and its been ages since Ive released an extension. What is it that youd like to see in an extension, but doesnt exist yet?
There are over 100 comments posted so far, but if you have a really good idea I'm sure he would love to hear about it. Some of the ideas posted so far could be implemented easily with a bookmarklet, or with a greasemonkey user script.

Would save doubling back when yuo want to post a link into an email or chat client and give the recipient some idea of what the article is about.
A further development of this would be when you select some text (e.g. first paragraph of an article) and right click, the context menu then let's you copy the title, URL, and selected text, again separated by line breaks.
'Comment out of the box' plug-in
The user simply goes to the firefox menu bar and activates the 'comment' option. This action opens a side window (like the history one) into which the user can write comments on the particular URL/link . The comments are linked to that particular URL and saved in a central-server database.
This way people can discuss and write their opinions/comments about any website they want even to all those websites which don't have the comment option themselves.
The other part of this plugin offers a search option which allows comment-related search of links.
but, big problem is, you have to switch windows/tabs and enter the numbers u find on your browser manually, skype has a nice add-on that enables you to click on the number and it will use skype to call it. i doubt this add-on is hard to make for gmail call feature. you'd think google would have implemented it already given people use its search engine and maps to find all sorts of contacts they eventually have to call!!!
so in short: add-on to enable gmail calls via a click'n'call for numbers listed on web.
