Actually there is no good reason for this tool not to be an independent piece of software – it doesn’t really need to be part of Firefox. But..
Somehow it just works for apparent reasons. Bloggers do two things a lot: Read blogs and write blogs and that is why ScribeFire is so cool – it’s right in the context where you want it. In Firefox:
- Go to the Tools-menu
- Choose Add-ons
- Choose Get Add-ons
- Type scribefire in the search box and search
- Install the add-on
Once installed, Scribefire is running all the time but display/hiding is switched with F8. It works especially well with WordPress blogs (such as this one) and configuration of one blog is done by entering the address of the blog + username and password.
If you feel inspired, click F8 and start typing. Something else came up, or the phone rang.. tap F8 and continue what you did before – and F8 it again to continue. So far it seems awfully nice.
