This is a Test

Slightly Disappointed

This is testing Performancing, a Firefox extension for publishing to blogs which supports a number of blog engines. I doubt I’ll actually use it (and will probably uninstall after this) simply because I’ve never found it hard to just open Moveablte Type’s backend in a new tab to post. Also, this doesn’t seem to have a way to handle the extended entry and keywords fields which I use quite a bit (extended entries actually hides the mood information for a post for instance). But hey, Ed it’s supposed to handle Livejournal too (though again, if it handles mood etc there I don’t know).

Edit: Had to edit the post because (despite the fact I’m pretty sure I’d checked the appropriate box) Performancing seemed to fail to add the category (despite the fact that it managed to detect them perfectly).

Edit: I think I may come across as a little harsh to the extension. Blaaah it doesn’t work…To be fair it is a first release, and probably will improve (then again, it’s carrying a 1.0 version number and no beta tag…) For right now though it lacks features I need, therefore wouldn’t get used and hence gets uninstalled (it’s not like I don’t have enough extensions to start with).
