Google Adds Blogger Comments To Firefox Web-Page Viewing

Google is testing a Firefox extension that displays blogger comments on the Web page being viewed.

Google Inc. is testing a Firefox extension that displays blogger comments on the Web page being viewed.

The Blogger Web Comments for Firefox, released in beta this week, shows a display panel on the bottom right of the browser that lists bloggers' comments. Clicking on an item launches a new tab for viewing the blog.

For people subscribing to Google's blogging service, called Blogger, they can use an "add comment" link on the display panel to post their own comment on their blog. Google will automatically add to the blog a link to the page being viewed.

The extension is available through Google Labs.

In addition to Blogger Web Comments, Google released in beta a "safe browsing" extension for Firefox that alerts users when they're visiting a suspected phishing site. The application spots potential problem pages through a combination of algorithms and reports about misleading pages.

The extension is available also through Google Labs.
