Blog This

Following Joe Cheng’s comment on Live Writerfox 0.3, I then realised the existence of Blog This for Firefox, developed by Microsoft development team. Blog This for Firefox is a pluin (or extension) that adds a button to Firefox which starts a new Windows Live Writer blog post, prepopulated with content and title from the current web page.

Users can blog the whole page or just from selected snippets. This extension also interacts with other registered plugins to parse and structure web content where appropriate. It allows users to blog quickly about specific interesting topic without having to start any other stand-alone application.

The latest release is known to be compatible with Firefox version 2.0.0.1. According to Joe Cheng, Blog This has a couple of advantages over Live Writerfox.

…it preserves a small amount of formatting from the original HTML (bold, italics, headings, paragraph breaks, etc.–but not fonts and colors) and links and images, whereas I believe Live Writerfox strips the HTML all the way into plaintext….


So, it seems that Blog This for Firefox is a better application than Live Writerfox. Check it out.
