[Pardon the crosslistings]
I have just released the first version of the Web Localizer to the WAG
the Dog Sourceforge site.
This is a slightly more sophisticated extension of Peter Binkley's and
Art Rhyno's Google Scholar/OpenURL Firefox extension/bookmarklet.
An explanation (and demo) of what it does and will hopefully do in the
future can be found here:
You can download it here:
More information about WAG the Dog can be found here:
Feel free to try it out and let me know what you think. There are
currently only two "plugins" that it uses, a very generic one that
rewrites links of any page you are at to go through your local proxy and
a more specific one for Google Scholar.
The latter should make it easy to create similar plugins for other
sites, like Scirus or Questia.com or any site that has a fairly standard
way of presenting content.
