Review: Locator

Posted: Saturday, December 29, 2007 by El Guru in Add-ons, Firefox, Fx 1.5, Fx 2.0

Ever since the issues with Yahoo!Maps and the Firefox nightly builds, I’ve been using Google Maps. But there a few steps involved when wanting to look-up an address you find on a website. First you must highlight and copy the address, then open a new tab and go to Goggle Maps and then finally paste in the address you wish to look-up. Once installed, the Locator extension adds a new option to the context (right-click) menu, locate on Google Map. So all you have to do now is a highlight the address, right-click, select this option and a new window will pop-up with the Google Map.

Locator works with Firefox 1.5-2.0.0.X builds is 5 KB and has no configuration options.
