Browser Plugins for Coral
We have provided some browser plugins so that users can simply type in a normal URL, and the URL will automatically be redirected into Coralized form. This may be especially useful, for example, when you are trying to access an overloaded server: try the Coralized URL instead, as it might already be cached in the Coral network.
Currently, we only support browser plugins for the Mozilla, Firefox, and Netscape 6 browsers, as well as a cross-platform bookmarklet.
We currently offer two types of Mozilla plugins:
Problems with the latter? The directory into which Mozilla search-plugins are installed is system-wide, not in a user's local preferences. In Unix/Linux/BSD, this means either the search plugins directory (below) must be world-writable (chmod o+w), or that you install the plugin as root, either automatically or manually. By default, your Mozilla searchplugins directory can be found at (replacing "mozilla" with "firefox" for the latter):
Linux: /usr/local/mozilla/searchplugins Windows: C:\Program Files\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\searchplugins\ Mac OS X: /Applications/Mozilla.app/Contents/MacOS/Search Plugins/To install the plugin manually, copy the coral.src and coral.gif files to this search plugin directory.
BookmarkletTo install a bookmarklet, just drag the following "Coralize" link to your bookmarks toolbar. When you click on the link once installed, it will coralize the current page. Note that this may have some limited benefit in that it operates only against the current page, as opposed to a specific link as with the extension.
On the flip side, the following is compatable with most popular browsers: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Mozilla, and Netscape (although not Konqueror).
ThanksThanks to Patrick Reynolds for contributing the Coral Mozilla extension and to Stephen Ostermiller for the bookmarklet.
