Radheef for Ubiquity

Earlier this week, Mozilla Labs released a very interesting (and useful) new extension for Firefox called "Ubiquity". It basically taps into the services provided by web services to integrate them better into the browsing experience. For an introduction to Ubiquity, it'd be best to read the post on the Mozilla Labs blog where the product was launched - the video featured in the post presents quite impressive practical enhancements to the browsing experience made possible by the product.

Radheef for Ubiquity
Radheef for Ubiquity adds the verb 'bas' to Ubiquity to facilitate quick and easy look up of definitions of Dhivehi words from any Thaana web page using the Radheef. To lookup a word you find on a Thaana web page, you can either select the word and bring up Ubiquity. Alternatively, you can type the word in to the Ubiquity command window. The definition results are shown immediately within the Ubiquity command bubble.

To install this, visit the Radheef for Ubiquity page after Ubiquity is installed and follow the normal verb installation steps.

Happy browsing :-)
