Cool new thing of the week: commands in your browser!

I just added a new add-on to Firefox that is pretty awesome.

It is called Ubiquity and it serves as a command based way to create your own content mashups, access the web, and in general do things.

I can’t explain it that well, so here is this video that can show you some of the things that Ubiquity can accomplish.

Ubiquity for Firefox from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

I’m interested in using this as a tool to gather knowledge more efficiently and really use the Internet to accomplish things.

I think one of my favorite functions is the TinyUrl. You can highlight any url and use Ubiquity to instantly make it a TinyUrl. It is really helpful for putting links into Twitter. You can also tweet directly using Ubiquity.

Try it out and let me know what you find!
