[tor-talk] New version of the Tor Flashproxy Badge Firefox Extension
I just wanted to give a quick heads up on my Firefox extension. It's now
not really a badge anymore (maybe someone knows a better name?). I
replaced the icon and aso I included the Flashproxy JS into the
application and gave it a lot of lifting (300 lines instead of 1000),
removing mostly the badge and some not really used features.
I did this not for the sake of forking, but because I wanted to replace
the badge stuff with an event based interface, so I can make it more
like an extension. Also users told me they wanted to see numbers of how
many people they helped and things like that. One could also add a
configuration interface. Another thing is that I think just using the
badge forces me to have the extension bound to the UI. I really hope
this doesn't come off like an evil fork, because I mainly wanted to have
downloading and executing it when the extension loads), which may be
considered a security benefit. The HTTPS version never worked for me on
Firefox. I think on Chrome it works just fine.
What would be really cool would be some kind of logo and a better icon.
Currently I just use a small roundish thingy (people didn't like the
look of the badge). So if anyone has fun with designing that would be
really cool as I am awful at this.
The last thing that was requested was putting the source code on GitHub
and now it is:

Hope you enjoy. Feedback is welcome!
