convert jscript to html

Very simple yet good jscript to html code formatting tool

disable venkman output to console

Venkman produces a lot of output to console which makes it hard to see the output from your extensions. To disable output from venkman, you can update venkman_utils.js in venkman.jar by replacing dd function with an empty function dd = function (){};

debug output from firefox extension

Start firefox with -console flag

Call dumpln function from your code (copy of code from venkman)

var dumpln;

if (typeof document == "undefined") /* in xpcshell */
dumpln = print;
if (typeof dump == "function") {
dumpln = function (str) {dump (str + "\n");}
} else if (jsenv.HAS_RHINO) {
dumpln = function (str) {
var out = java.lang.System.out;
out.println(str); out.flush();
else {
dumpln = function () {} /* no suitable function */

Firefox vs Chrome #2

Made another attempt to use Chrome 2.x and 3.x. Layout issues seems to be fixed. However there are still problems like
- Navigation back from 404 does not always work (never hit such problems in FF)
- Adding RSS to google reader is not supported

Back to FF.

FireFox vs Chrome

After trying Chrome for a week I got back to FireFox. Main problems with Chrome are
- Increased battery usage. Battery time decreases ~30% when Chrome is running. Does not happen for FF on the same sites
- Chrome renders some sites (like google reader) differently than IE / FF
- Address bar shows prompt for visited sites instead of typed sides like FF.
- In the default configuration does not allow to subscribe to RSS feeds. Shows XML dump in a window
