Released: Modify Headers 0.5.4

Now that Firefox 2 has been released and the Modify Headers upgrade to support it completed, I have finally got round to fixing an usability issue that has been irritating me for a while.

Previously when clicking the Edit button, the header name and value would be placed in the appropriate text box, but the action select would not change, it would always be stuck on Add. Now, this has been resolved.

Firefox auto-update will handle this for most people, but if you don’t have Modify Headers, go install it from Mozilla Update.

Mobilizing this blog

Volantis has released a tool that enables anybody to mobilize their website.

Predefined rules are then used to adapt the content for different types of device.

Beta testers wanted

I’m in the process of porting Modify Headers to Flock and Seamonkey. If anyone is interested in beta testing these versions prior to release, please mail me at modifyheaders-owner _at_

The Flock version is ready to go, but the Seamonkey version is going to take some more work.

It’s been how long?

My wife made a comment this morning that I should update my website as it had been a while since anything changed. I couldn’t remember when I last posted, so I had a look… 18th February! I can’t believe it, six months has past and I haven’t written one post. I will offer no excuses, as there are none that can justify such a long period of inactivity.

However, so much has happened in that six months. The biggest event is that Susanna and I have moved to Seattle in Washington State, USA. (For those of you that don’t know us, we used to live in London, UK.) The reason: I’ve moved over with my company. I’m still doing the same job as a Consultant to the mobile content world, but now I’m doing it in America.

We are both so excited to be here. It’s been a beautiful summer (which isn’t over yet) and we have found a lovely place to live with a fantastic lake view. We are really happy to be here and would like to thank everyone who have helped us in our first couple of months.

Must-have… Modify Headers

Yesterday I went looking for recommended Thunderbird extensions and found an article, published Wednesday at Newsforge, about Must-have Firefox and Thunderbird extensions. To my surprise, on page 2 under Web developer tools, was listed Modify Headers.

It’s great to know your work is appreciated.
