GWT Developer plugin for Firefox 7 is now Ready

UPDATED 2011-12-14: Prebuilt folder now contains Firefox 8 version of the GWT developer plugin.

Since Firefox 7 was released, i have defered upgrading for one simple reason: At work I am dependent on GWT Developer plugin.

Today I found the ready-to-release plugin which actually works with Firefox 7: in here  is the gwt-dev-plugin.xpi, and it works like a charm :)

(In firefox, it asks you to download. And then you can drag the downloaded .xpi back into the browser to install. Why Firefox will not instantly recognize the .xpi file is kind of strange)

    Firefox has been a nice and good browser to work on and with, but from version 5 up it has made a lot of problems for me. It gets stuck, loses tabs and a lot of other stuff.

    I don’t see FF good it things will go this way in the future.

    Used Firefox for year but recently I switched over to Chrome and loving it, do you have an extension for Chrome too ?

    Waiting for the new GWT tool was a pain. But firefox 6 wasn’t missing that much from 7 anyways, so I didn’t mind waiting for the upgrade :D

  4. Phil Hayward Says:

    Firefox won’t install .xpi files from most sites automatically because it’s a potential security risk. By requiring you to download and drag the thing back onto firefox to get it to install, they know you really do want to install the extension.

    They say Chrome will overtake Firefox now within the next months worldwide (not sure about DK). I love Firefox, but their recent string of upgrades made it hard to stick to.

    I’m not happy with Firefox 7 and it’s not just plugins. Too many UI changes really annoy me, like removal of the status bar, moving the reload page icon, different toggle for the back button to move back pages.

    Some of these are like if the keys on your keyboard were moved around ! You get used to making actions without looking and when they move they commonly used UI items and buttons it’s a real annoyance.

    Is there a way to install plugins/extensions on Safari? I’m on a Mac and don’t plan on using Firefox. Or maybe chrome? please reply if you know a way

    Firefox is one of the best browser i have used. Currently i am using Mozilla Firefox version 4 and i have also try Mozilla 7, But i realize Mozilla 4 is better that the new one.
