Performancing…

with one comment

Ok… another test post!
Scoble keep giving out interesting links… so this time it is Performancing for Firefox. This happens to be the FOURTH blog editor that I’ve tried. This is crazy :-D. But I guess it just shows how fickle-minded I am. And that blog editing softwares still have some way to go before I can settle down with someone.
Performancing is really nice. I don’t even have to move out of Firefox. It splits the browser into two panes (reminds me of ‘Ctrl-x 2’ in Emacs) and I am browsing in the upper pane and blogging in the lower one. I find it so easy to link to the various stuff that I like doing now. And, I don’t have to keep switching windows using the Alt-Tab keys.
Yep… I really like this. I can keep saving my drafts as Notes. Which is good, because my Firefox has been crashing quite often of late. I can set the categories. Blogging is almost anonymous. There’s just one [Publish To: Null Bit Me] button at the bottom which can give away my blog to people around me. Yep… I am paranoid. I hate people peeking. And this was one of the feedback mails that I sent to WordPress.com because I really wanted to blog without my blog name showing in big bold letters on the screen. The best thing that I liked about Zoundry i.e. the ability to store my previously used URL’s in my blog has been bettered now. Because I have ALL my links in the Firefox history!
This is seriously cool… Performancing is definetely Performance Enhancing!
And I love it šŸ™‚
And now for the biggest test…. to publish, and see how it looks like on the actual site….

[UPDATE: Two problems noted.
a) The formatting like bold and italics disappeared after publishing.
b) The hyperlinks all open in the same window and I cannot control it. I like my links to open in a new window.]

  1. […] After being gaga over Performancing for Firefox when it was working flawlessly, something stopped working. And I could not use it anymore and had to move over to Zoundry What happened was that on clicking on the icon in the lower right corner of my Firefox status bar, the lower pane for blogging would open, but the Categories list would not appear. The Categories tab kept saying “Loading categories…”. I tried publishing without setting the category, but even that would not work I tried the same thing at home which is a different machine on a different network, but had the same problem. So the problem was most probably not with Performancing, but maybe with the WordPress.com site or something that I was doing wrong at both places.Just now, I finally got it working! The problem wasn’t in WordPress.com. So… yep. It was me doing something specific at both the browsers so that it wouldn’t work. I use the Master Password feature in Firefox. And I think it stored the username& password that I configured Performancing with. The next time I opened the browser, I dismissed the master password prompt box. After all I wasn’t doing anything and hadn’t even started to blog! So why should I enter a password to open a blog editor? And so the categories list never was populated. And I could not publish As far as I recall, why I did not submit my master password was because switching on Performancing prompted me to submit my master password 4 times!! I got suspicious and then dismissed it. I’ve checked it again now. I open a new session of the browser, start Performancing, and I am prompted for my master password 4 times This is not good… […]
