Photoshop Contest Forum Index - Gatherings and Meetings - Cool Firefox extension for file sharing; meet @the PSC! - Reply to topic

Hey, I found this while looking for extensions for Firefox.
Anyway, basically what it does is to let a user set a specific page as a "meeting place" where anyone with this extension can "meet" at. Think of it as a chatroom, but with really cool features. It will let you post images, video, and even share files. For instance, say we are all in a discussion about a cool chop someone did. I could post the file for anyone to download directly from the chat, or any other file.

I think this would be especially appealing to non-advantage users; you could share your images and stuff in here, along with the Advantage users. I'm still checking it out, all that I have said is from what it claims to be capable of. I'll set one up for PSC, unless someone beats me to it. (OK, you just run it while on PSC, it'll be there automatically) here is a link to the extension.
Sorry to those that still use IE, this is Firefox only. Razz

here is the description they provide:

" (

ok, after using it, here is my critique;


file sharing, picture and video posting
chat for anyone...
built into the browser, so no extra windows


has sort of annoying chat sounds, that as far as I know, aren't turn-off-able.

overall, I can already tell this won't catch on, will have a brief life (if any) here at PSC. Still, get it if you have Firefox, and if you want to share a file, just pm someone or someones to get on it.
not a frequent use thing, but would be great for file sharing

heheh, to use it, just go to PSC main page, then click on the "daisy" icon. there should be one in the lower right hand corner of the task bar, as well as one up near the address bar.
