Growl integration in Firefox 3

In: Mac|Mozilla

5 May 2007

Some of the latest Firefox 3 aka Minefield trunk builds include Growl integration! This is probably a non-event for anyone other than Mac users, but hey Growl notifications without needing to install an extension? Pretty nice.

Firefox 3 Growl notification for downloads

Get a nightly here:

To test Firefox 3 nightlies without possibly messing up your existing profile (preferences, extensions, what have you), use the Profile Manager to create a new profile just for testing. Way less stupid then trying to load up 48 tabs from your current profile in Firefox 3 and then seeing most of the extensions fail to work (which was what I tried to do, once).

You rock my socks. Thanks for the heads up. I’m a sucker for anything with Growl integration.
