Mozilla and Me

Today is a very special day for me. Today I official start working on Firefox/Ubiquity/whatever full time. That’s right: no more real life getting in the way. No more having to balance my day job with “Mozilla stuff”. Now the Mozilla stuff is my day job.

I’ll be working from home, in the beautiful city of Dunedin, New Zealand.

Here’s a quick-n-dirty list of what I’ll be working on, in no specific order:

  • Catching up (after buying a house, then going on holiday, I’m a bit behind)
  • Ubiquity architectural changes
  • Ubiquity metrics
  • Development related Ubiquity commands (not just Ubiquity-specific!)
  • Take over the world
  • Integrating Ubiquity into the Firefox awesomebar
  • Improving Firefox’s Library window

And of course, that’s just for starters. I’ve got plenty of ideas I haven’t had time to flesh-out, let alone start implementing – ideas relating to not only Ubiquity and Firefox, but other Mozilla-related projects as well. So I’ve got plenty to keep me busy for a very long time!

On top of all that, I’ll also be blogging more on what I’m working on. Not just to share my progress, but also to gather some all-important feedback from the community. I’m also going to try to use this newfangled thing called Twitter. I may have written the original Ubiquity command for Twitter, but I’ve never actually used the service myself. I guess this is a good of a time as any to start. And as always, I’ll be on IRC – my IRC nick is Unfocused.

Note: By “today” I mean Monday 12th January. But since New Zealand is UTC+13, it’ll still be Sunday for a lot of you. Too bad. I’m excited, and I can start early if I want to! :P

  1. Yes, THANK YOU!

    Firefox’s Library window needs help.
    I installed Firefox 2 on my uncle’s computer and when it automatically updated to Firefox 3 things changed and he no longer looked the same, he was lost and didn’t know how to manage his bookmarks anymore.

    I feel strongly that the window needs a good usability eye.

    Please feel free to email me as I’ve got a couple simple ideas and thoughts that I feel could help.

    Also, like the look of your blog theme.

  2. Ubiquity rulez! I can’t wait having it in the Awesome bar (provided that this does not destroy the user experience of both features).

    Congrats on your new job too!
