Firefox add-on - YouTube Viewer

Over the holidays I have been hacking Firefox, XULRunner, JavaScript and so on...it has been a lot of fun.

Here is a no-nosense YouTube Viewer add-on for Firefox that came out of that:

YouTube Viewer

If you want to try it, simply download this add-on, install it and launch it using Tools:YouTube Viewer... menu item. The operation is pretty simple, just type the search terms in the Search for: (Alt+f) text field and press Search (Alt+S)button. The list of matching videos will be populated in the listbox on the left. Select a video and type ENTER or double click on it. The video is loaded in the Video panel. The Description text box shows the video title and detailed description.

Watch this space for a tutorial on how I developed this module and which tools and add-ons I used to develop and  debug this add-on.

DISCLAIMER: This add-on is experimental. So no guarantees. Use the add-on at your own risk.
