I noticed a steep increase in Textise use yesterday and discovered that this was because the Firefox Add-on’s been promoted out of “experimental” status and suddenly everyone was noticing it. Thanks to everyone who’s been Twittering, Digging, etc.
Welcome to our World Of Text!
If you don’t have it yet, the Firefox Add-on’s available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12145.
Using the add-on makes using Textise much easier and slicker as it saves you having to paste URLs into the home page.
There are a couple of comments on the Add-on page that I need to reply to:
- I don’t think an ON/OFF icon is necessary – it’s pretty obvious when you’re viewing a Textised page. However, if enough people ask for this, I’d be happy to comply.
- Another user complains he/she doesn’t like “black on white contrast with just plain text”. Please note that you can change font, font size, colours and other things on the Textise Options Page. Changes made here are local to each browser.
As always, please report any errors you find. And let me know if you discover a new use for Textise.
It’s a lovely day here in the UK today so I’m heading for the garden now (to bask, not to work!).
