linux default iconAwesome Throbber Publisher's description

Based upon Throbber Button by Aaron Pauls.

Awesome Throbber is a Firefox extension that allows you define what URL(s) you get taken to when you click on the throbber icon (The 'spinning dots' activity indicator you see when a page is loading.)

You may left click, middle click, or right click on the throbber (with or without holding the Alt key) to get taken to an URL of your choice. Each type of click can take you to a different URL.

You may assign groups of URLs to each action by separating each URL with the pipe "|" symbol, or you may use javascript: bookmarklets.

You may control the behaviour of each click with respect to whether the link is loaded in the current tab, a new tab without focus, a new tab with focus, a new window, or whatever the browser default behaviour is.

You may add a description for each click action which is used in the tooltip. This is handy for long groups of piped URLs, or for javascript snippets you may be executing. If the description is left blank, the URL(s) are stripped of any leading "http://" and any trailing linkage after the domain name and used instead.

NOTE: This extension is currently in the SANDBOX, which means it will show up in listings and searches, but users must log in to download it. In order for it to become PUBLIC it must receive some user reviews! So please, if you like this extension and have a moment to spare, leave me a review so the world can see how awesome Awesome Throbber is!
