Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This used to be one of my favorite add-ons. If you have a page with hundreds of potentially interesting links, it will help you drill down to the relevant stuff. Unfortunately, as of now, it doesn't work in FF 3.6, not even when overriding compatibility.
Also, I second firefeast's ideas: It should be possible to only list links ...
- from a selected section of the current page
- of a certain target file type.
And being able to sort/filter/drill down by the domain/site of the link targets (using a tree-style display) would be great, too.
With these features and FF 3.6 compatibility added, LinkSidebar would be a power-user's dream.
Pretty please? :)
The addon's been updated to work on Firefox 3.6.
You can get an approximation of searching for a file type by searching for ".jpg" to show only links to jpeg images.
The other suggestions are great, and I'll be implementing them in future version of the addon.
