Browser addons for my “web to Kindle” web app

June 12th, 2011, Tagged: ,

Just a quick announcement: the first Sendtoreader extension / addon is finally released.  The addon is for FireFox browser, simply because most of my site’s visitors (according to Google Analytics) are using that browser. But, Safari and Chrome extensions are already in my todo list, so if you are using one of those browsers, just wait some time. I do plan to have a version of my addon for every popular browser.

The addons page.

Browser extension devs: if you are interested in making your own extension or in porting my addon to another browser, please contact me. I’ll be more than happy to help you. The fact is, the API is ready (and a page describing it will be published soon), so I guess you will not have any serious  problem developing your own extension utilizing SENDtoREADER functionality.

Update

Version 1.3 of the Firefox addon is out, it fixes the compatibility issue with FF for Mac OS. Please reinstall the addon from this page.

    Thank you!

    May I ask you how it differs from the bookmarklet?

    With addon you can send pages without visiting them – right click on any link on the page you are viewing and select “Send to reader” in the popup menu,

    Ah, I see – thank you!

    Is there a way to remove the “send to reader” option in the right click menu? I absolutely can’t stand having something in the spot where copy should be.

    Thanks!

      Sorry, there is no way to remove that option. But since you don’t need it, try to use sendtoreader bookmarklet, I think it does all you need. So, uninstall the addon and bring the bookmarklet to your bookmarks bar to try it in action.
