AJAX Yahoo! Mail 0.6 released

Just released the latest version of AJAX Yahoo! mail on mozilla.org. This is a bug fix release. No new features in this version. Many people had reported that firefox was crashing after using the extension. That has been resolved in this release. Have also fixed opening an attachment with a single click. Now that feature also works again.

If you have any comments or suggestions about this or any previous release of this product leave your comments on this page. I am working on an article that shows how this extension has been developed and how you can convert your Web 1.0 applications to Web 2.0 without making too many changes. You can subscribe to my blog http://vivekjishtu.blogspot.com/ for infomation about when I put up that article online. You can subscribe using the Atom Feed

If you are new to AJAX Yahoo! Mail here is what its supposed to do :)

This firefox extension enhances the way you use Yahoo! Mail. Just try it out once if you use yahoo mail.
This extension converts Yahoo! Mail into an AJAX enabled web account. Incase you have a problem while upgrading on installing it, leave a comment on this page. You can read more about this plugin on mozilla.org, you can also read the reviews by the users who have used this extension. This is what you can do with the current version.

  • Compose or reply an email in a second
  • View all your mails without going back and forth
  • Download an attachment with a single click

You can download the firefox plugin or you can download the user script which you can use with greasemonkey.
This website is not supported by Yahoo! nor is this site anyway linked to Yahoo! it is just a proof of concept about what can be done with AJAX . Do not use the greasemonkey script if you have Greasemonkey 0.6.x, it will not work with it.

After more than a year Viamatic Open EzBasic 0.3 will be released. It will have more support for Mingw.

Viamatic Tabnail 0.4

The Viamatic Tabnail extension is an extension which you should use if you have a slow internet connection. It lets you preview the pages as they load in realtime. It adds thumbnail of the page that is being loaded into the tab and updates it in realtime. If you have a broadband connection this extension might not be for you. If you find it usefull please do rate it on mozilla.org

If you use TabMix plus or some other extension which changes the tabs this extension might not work, and so far there is no work around for this problem.

If you have any support questions or comments post them in the tabnail forum .

XUL.net the future of web apps

Update: Sorry but this project has been kept on hold as we don’t have time to complete it, we are only trying to finish up the PHP version first.

We are also developing a similar library for .net, so making applications for the web would be as easy as developing applications for the desktop. This library would have a plugin for VS 2005 to draw and design your XUL forms.

XUL/PHP based library in development

We are finally starting our work on the library. It has not yet got any offical name but it will have a RAD IDE to design your applications. It will allow you to design new applications with ease.
