Cobalt Box 0.17
Cobalt Box is a platform empowering anyone to create applications which can appear embedded in any webpage. The aim of the platform is to give users the power to customize the web.
About this Add-on
The widgets themselves aim to create additional value for the user browsing experience by altering what up to now was considered read-only content. All widgets are added to the page inside clearly-marked cobalt boxes in order to differentiate themselves from normal page content.
Currently the Cobalt Box platform is implemented as a Mozilla Firefox plugin but future releases will operate with other browsers as well as through a stand-alone website.
The Firefox plugin is shipped bundled together with the first Cobalt Box widget: Parallel Links. Parallel Links is aimed to serve as a proof of concept and an example of Cobalt Box's potential. It analyses the current webpage and automatically draws links from popular websites (incl. Twitter, Wikipedia, Amazon, and others) that are directly relevant to the current webpage.
The Cobalt Box platform allows any developer to embed their widget anywhere on the web!
More information and opportunities for developers will be made available soon. In the meantime, please send any bugs and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
