Version 1.16.1-signed.1-signed 39.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 and later

1.16: IMPORTANT: Extension website address has changed -- it's BetterSearch.zottmann.org now. - CHG: WebShotsPro.com not used anymore. Apparently, BetterSearch blew their servers away. (Sorry about that.) In the future, all images will be requested through img.bettersearch.zottmann.org so I have more control which services are used and will be able to react faster to stuff like that. - ADD: Attribution (text snippet) is pulled from the extension website at each browser start to allow me to act fast in case I need to switch thumbnail providers (server-side), which might require new/changed attribution. Should the need arise, I will be able to adjust the attribution text without distributing a new extension version. The attribution is pulled from http://bettersearch.zottmann.org/ext_attribution/attribution.txt and sanitized after loading (stripping out possible script code). - CHG: Some locale string names have been changed, nothing major, tho. - CHG: Small changes to sk-SK localization (thanks to Spikee over at babelzilla.org!) - FIX: it-IT locale fixed. - FIX: Code cleanups to get rid of the mess that was caused in the "chaos" that ensued after webshotspro.com blacklisted us.
