Software: Deskbar Firefox History Vai alla versione ITALIANA di questa pagina

GNOME 2.14 includes the new Deskbar applet, a very powerful tool that could be easily extended with plugins: soon after tried it, I thought that searching within the Firefox history.dat history file was something missing. I was usually launching internet addresses - when Firefox is closed - using the Run (ALT+F2) window; now the Deskbar applet with the following plugin is much more powerful, specially if you frequently launch often the same URLs.

To install it, copy & paste the lines of code below in ~/.gnome2/deskbar-applet/handlers/
