Thanks to the selfless dedication, enthusiasm and hard work of Philip Chee, TagZilla 0.066 is released. He's submitted several fixes and improvements:

What's new:

His fixes all seem to work for me, when I tested in Thunderbird and Firefox 2.0 (in both cases, using the latest signed JSLib from the top of this page).

Note: If you are using SeaMonkey 2.1 or upper, or Thunderbird 5 or upper, you may need to use the JSLib v0.1.366 XPI at the XSidebar site.

I'd like to offer my sincerest apologies to all TagZilla fans for having let my baby bitrot for this long. I won't go into details since I'm not looking for sympathy, but suffice it to say that life has been very busy, and robbed me of all time and energy to keep TagZilla going. My deepest thanks go to Philip Chee for bringing TagZilla back to life. I'm grateful, and as I understand it, so is everyone who has been using TagZilla with his fixes. This is what open-source development is all about.

What is TagZilla?

TagZilla is an add-on to Mozilla that lets you add a tagline, random or specifically chosen by you, to the end of an email or newsgroup posting, or to the clipboard for pasting into a Web-based email or message board.

What is a tagline?

A tagline is a one-line joke, witticism, factoid, what have you. It can be about any subject (although it's good to ensure it's appropriate to the forum in question). The random quotes that can be found at the end of web pages like Slashdot or the MozDev home page could be considered taglines.

Why did I make TagZilla?

Back in the early '90s, before the internet was in every home, I got involved in the BBS scene. In particular, I became a regular poster on the WildNet message network. Most messages on WildNet, like pretty much every BBS message network, had taglines tacked onto the end. But taglines were more than just simple witticisms; they were a phenomenon. It was a huge 'game' to try and create, steal, and collect the most, or the best, taglines. I wanted to bring some of the magic of taglines into the Internet era, however belated.

Who am I?

I am David Perry. I earned my Computer Engineering degree (and my Iron Ring) from the University of Toronto. ERTW. I live in Ontario, Canada.

TagZilla is my first time starting a Mozilla project, but it isn't my first time participating in one. I've done a lot of work for MultiZilla, and I've also done some work for MozGest. Outside of Mozilla, I diddle around with an occasional project here and there, just to see how it works. (:

The tagzilla project can be contacted through the mailing list or the member list.
