Hollyfox anyone?

I know a few people have asked occasionally for a firefox version of the Hollybar and I've been looking at this in a little more depth recently.

The good news is that on Windows at least it's definitely possible and, indeed, ultimately it could be a better - at least much more flexible - tool.

The bad news it that there's lots and lots of fiddly stuff to do first involving such delightful things as XUL, XPI and XPCOM.

So far I've got to the state where I can get Firefox to show the GPS software version number. Hoorah! That only took a week...

If enough people are interested I will push this through as it'll be an interesting experience if nothing else!

So I wonder if enough people are interested....
