We are pleased to announce the first iteration of a Firefox Add-on for
Trendrr. With an extension integrated into the browser, our services
are quickly accessible and the process of tracking trends has become
even simpler. Similar to bookmarking functionality, you do not have to
leave the page you wish to track. Simply right click on the page or use
our toolbar icon to submit a trend directly to your account.
At this time, there are three main uses of the add-on:
- You can easily track the current URL in your browser as stated
above. As an example, if your browser is located at a YouTube video
page, the URL will be recognized as such and the add-on will instruct
your account to start tracking such information as views, comments, and
number of favorites.
- You may also type in a phrase, or use a highlighted phrase, and
track these words on many of our data sources such as Delicious
Bookmarks, eBay auctions, and Flickr tags.
- Lastly, you can search existing trends that other users are already
tracking. After entering keywords, a new tab will open with any user
graphs that match the content you are seeking.
We encourage those Firefox users in the Trendrr community to download
and experiment with our new tracking tool. As with all newly created
add-ons, Mozilla has categorized ours as experimental. In order for the
add-on to be available for the general public, we need people to leave
us reviews on addons.mozilla.org. The direct link is below. Thanks for
your help and enjoy the add-on. We’re excited to hear what you think.
