Mozilla Labs introduces Ubiquity. While still in a very early stage, Ubiquity is a pretty impressive functional addition to future Firefox. Ubiquity’s goals are to:
- Empower users to control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.)
- Enable on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyone (not just Web developers) to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)
Better than a long speech, check out the video and test it by yourself.
Let’s hope this will also run with Thunderbird…
