Outfoxed, the Firefox Extension

Last week I checked out Outfoxed, a Firefox extension that lets you rate pages and your friends (and friends of friends) see those ratings. Sadly, the extension doesn’t seem to work with the beta version of Firefox 1.5 that I’m using. Their servers didn’t seem to be able to handle the load of everyone signing up either. I think I’ll try again next week after 1.5 is finalized.

Hopefully they’ll have worked out most of the bugs by then — at least most of the big ones. It’s really a great idea with a terrible name (see the other Outfoxed). If this technology can be proved, it would make a great addition to existing services like AOL, MSN, Google, and Yahoo.
