Back in April, we reviewed ScribeFire, an awesome Firefox add-on which is a fully-featured blog editor that provides a convenient solution for writing and editing blog posts as you research relevant material online. Late last month, ScribeFire launched its newest version for Firefox, called ScribeFire Next (version 1.2). The developer also released version 1.2 of this extension for both Safari and Chrome.
We saw a number of interesting features in the latest build. Thanks to the Tag Autocompletion feature, now you do not have to worry about having to enter the tags over and over. The extension saves tags used in the previous posts and offers to auto complete the tags on your new posts.
For WordPress users, the add-on also incorporated Custom fields; the auto complete feature is also included for these fields. Some bugfixes were also carried out; the category selection works just fine now. In the previous version, linebreaks were lost due to another bug, which has also been resolved.
The add-on supports quite a number of blogs, such as WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Windows Live Spaces, Tumblr, Posterous, Xanga and many more. With all the interesting changes that we’ve seen to this extension, it will definitely prove to be all the more helpful for bloggers. It supports Firefox versions 3.6 and above. For Firefox 4, if you choose to open the add-on in a new tab, then it appears as App tab.
