Why was Image Toolbar created?

Image Toolbar was written to fulfil a request from a forum user at MozillaZine who wanted to switch to Firefox from Internet Explorer, but didn't want to lose the Image Toolbar functionality. I sympathised with this need, and had seen the request a few times before, so I decided to help out.

After a few years, various enhancements and a rewrite, Image Toolbar remains my most popular extension, and is the most functionally rich that I have written.

What's next for Image Toolbar

Future enhancements I'd like to make to Image Toolbar include:

1) View Image (view the image on its own)
2) Zoom in / zoom out
3) Add tooltips to the buttons
4) Allow users to choose which corner the toolbar appears in.

I'm sure there are plenty of others on my list that I haven't mentioned, there's always a lot I'd like to do with this extension. I'm happy to discuss feature ideas and enhancements, and will gratefully look at any source code contributions.
