I wouldn't mind wasting 3MB of my HD and I think I won't have to
look at the GUI more than one time. But firefox is slow enough for
me right now I don't want to make it slower.

Unfortunately it still say "Not available for Firefox 6.0"

But there has been recent commit on
So I'd just have to put a reminder on my agenda to check later.

While firefox checks for installed plug-in updates, once a plug-in
becomes unsupported by a newer version I doubt I'll get a reminder.
I couldn't see any rss, newsletter, whatever on any of the sites.

This made me wonder if there is a debian package that "smartly"
monitor web page changes and report by email.
I'm not in the mood to write the usual 3 lines of code that will be
forgotten in my /usr/local/bin for years.
