Creating applications with Mozilla

Open Source

Brett Morgan:

While mooching through Creating Applications with Mozilla I noticed something very cool in chapter 12. Remote Mozilla Applications - where a mozilla application is pulled at run time from a web server.

This is really cool! I still dream of an RSS aggregator integrated in Mozilla, which has the ability to subscribe to Weblogs you visit while browsing. The current process is too cumbersome, copy the RSS feed URL and manually enter it in the RSS aggregator. You almost forget to do it.

Now that I switched to NetNewsWire, I was thinking I could write a simple AppleScript and invoke it from Mozilla to subscribe to the RSS feed in NetNewsWire. A specialized Mozilla application would be able to capture the URL and invoke the AppleScript, but NetNewsWire is not AppleScript enabled :(
