I wondered who else might be working on bioinformatics related extensions for Firefox besides Firegoose. One interesting project is iHOPerator, which builds on Greasemonkey. And, there's a hint of something to come here.
It seems like there was a flurry of interest around 2005, in the early days of AJAX and mash-ups, which produced biobar along with two now-dead projects - bioFox and NCBI Search Toolbar. Back in those days, John Udell asked, How do you design a remixable Web application? Nifty developments like the REST API in EMBL's STRING 8.0 are starting to provide answers.
