Why was Track Package created?

Track Package was started in mid-2005 by me, Dave Kahler. I tend to get a lot of packages, and was always annoyed at the copy-and-paste routine when an email didn't link up the tracking link for me. I decided to attempt a Firefox extension to fix this annoyance. A few days later, v0.1 of Track Package was born. I posted it on Mozilla's Extensions page with the hope that others would find it as useful as I did. Since then, I've received lots of emails from people grateful for not having to go through that annoying routine anymore. To everyone who has sent one of these emails, thank you. They're what keep me motivated to continue improving the extension. See the other pages on this website for more information on the extension.

What's next for Track Package

I would like to add a way to synchronize tracking histories between Firefox and Thunderbird. As part of this change, I plan on transitioning to an XML-based preferences tracking system that should be much more robust than the current string-based system.
