linux default iconBetter Directories Publisher's description

Makes boring http(s) directories look better and be more functional

Better Directories is a Firefox extension that makes HTTP(S) directories more functional - always sortable for example. Files all have the correct icons, and the directories all look like FTP directories i.e. much better.

A user-friendly and fully customisable system determines whether a page is a directory (and should be targeted for improvement) or not. Using some (optional) right click menu entries, you can define any page as a directory, though the automatic scanner will pick up on most. Likewise, if any page is being incorrectly rendered as a directory when it is not, a few clicks will declare it to be not a directory and it will never be affected again.

An example of what it does can be found at: http://dev.novemberborn.net/sifr3/nightlies/ and many others, styling them to look like this: http://mozillalinks.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/ff3_ftp.png .

Only tested on default theme; possible that others cause some problems. It uses the ultra-safe Greasemonkey script injector, but does not require Greasemonkey itself.

Unlike other developers, I do read all the comments posted here on the Mozilla site.

Here are some key features of "Better Directories":

В· applies CSS to make the page look better.
В· applies javascript to make the data sortable.
В· gives each entry an icon, taken from Firefox 3 chrome.
В· puts a proper "Go up" link at the top of the page.
В· attempts to apply a favicon if one doesn't exist.
В· shortens long filenames intelligently.

User Interface Features:

В· Quick global enable/disable through Tools menu
В· Multiple customisable options
В· Choose your preferred date format (defaults based on your locale!)
В· Optional Easy-Add right click menu entries to quickly define a page as a directory, or not a directory.

What's New in This Release:

В· Updated for Firefox 4.

В· Changes to main functionality should be negligible, but Better Directories is now more efficient, more stable, and generally less buggy. showContextMenu defaults to false rather than true now.

В· Oh, and I drew up some new graphics.

System Requirements:

В· Mozilla Firefox
