Hey all, I am happy to announce that View Docs Online is finally available to all of you: try it out and let me know your feedback!
View Docs Online is a website that allows users to view many different documents online in a very simple way.
To view a document in your computer, you just need to visit View Docs Online homepage, click on “Browse…” to choose the document and then click on “View Document”. That’s it!
If you just want to try it out, you can use the “URL” tab: an existing url is prefilled and hence you just need to click on “View Document”. Feel free to enter a different url if you want to view another document that is on the net.
If you like View Docs Online, don’t forget to spread the word about it in blogs, forums, etc.
Open IT Online
1.6 is finally out! In this new version, I've introduced a new great online service, Vuzit
, to view documents online. From now on, Open IT Online is also compatible with Flock
, the social web browser.
"We chose to partner with Open IT Online because of its tight browser integration with Firefox, intuitive user interface, and ease of use", said Chris Cera
, CTO of Vuzit.

On 13rd December I've released a new version of Open IT Online
. In this new version (v1.5
), Open IT Online adds Pixlr
to the group of the online image editors you can use. Pixlr is a great flash-based online image editor with a lot of features: you will easily forget about Photoshop. You just need Open IT Online and you will have many of the features you need in your day to day life.
As many of you may have already noticed on AMO
site, I've recently stopped my effort in PDF Download
development. Now the first extension I've ever created is fully under the ownership and responsability of NitroPDF
. What else to say...I'm really proud of what I did with PDF Download and now I hope that NitroPDF will make PDF Download even more popular and useful.
Goodbye PDF Download, take care!
A new version of Open IT Online
has just been published: thanks to this version, now we can edit images with Picnik
, one of the most powerful online image editors. In addition to this, the new version fixes a small bug in the options dialog regarding the Google Apps
url. For more details, you can see the full change log
This week Open IT Online
reached 500.000 downloads from AMO
website. In addition to that, I'm also happy to say that almost 100.000 users use Open IT Online every day. I want also to anticipate that a new version of Open IT Online will be published in the coming days: this new version will include the support to one of the most sophisticated online image editor. Stay tuned

have just released the first alpha version of Fennec
: the mobile version of Firefox. At the moment Fennec can run only on Nokia N810 Internet Tablets
; if you don't have such mobile, then you can always try Fennec in a Desktop environment. Fennec, even if still in alpha stage, supports:
- Bookmarks, including tags
- Smart URL bar ("awesome bar")
- Tabbed browsing with thumbnail images
- Integrated Web search - built into the URL bar
- Easy access to multiple search engines
- Zoom in and out
- Click on a phone number to initiate a call
It's difficult to say now if Fennec will win the battle against Opera Mobile
, Safari Mobile and others; for sure, the possibility to develop add-ons will help Fennec as it did for Firefox.
If you are still curios, you can see a video of Fennec

Few weeks ago I've discovered a really nice Firefox
extension, called TV Manager
, that allows me to find quickly the answer to one of my most frequent questions: What's on TV tonight? TV Manager gathers television listings from different countries and channels and displays them in the browser sidebar in a convenient way.
At the moment, TV Manager can be installed only registering to the Mozilla Addons
site: this is due to the fact that Mozilla editors didn't review it and make it public. I encourage you to write a review about TV Manager
on the Mozilla site: more reviews an extension gets, more likely it becomes public.
TV Manager has been also certified 100% clean by Softpedia
. It is definitely worth to give it a try!

Recently I've stumbled upon a cool website, Last.fm
, where you can listen online to your favourite songs. The great thing is that Last.fm is able to propose other songs that you probably like. In fact, the website keeps track of the songs you listened and then it proposes some others that are similar. All that is for FREE and it works pretty well. There is also a cool Firefox extension, called Fire.fm
, that allows you to play the songs directly from your status bar or toolbar. All in all, it represents a nice way to listen to your favourite music.
A new version of Open IT Online
is available (v1.3). In this version I've included the support for Google Apps
: this features was requested by many users. In addition, the new version allows editing background images.
And finally a quick geek note: I've refactored all the code to use namespaces
in order to avoid function and variable naming collisions with other extensions and to minimize the number of global variables (if you want to know more about this problem, you can have a look at a post
written on the Yahoo User Interface blog
