Firefox Live Bookmarks


A colleague was stumped by how to add a Live Bookmark for Guido’s blog in Firefox. It turns out that to do that, the page offering the feed must have an alternate link in its header. The software that uses for its weblogs doesn’t do that, so I’ve hacked together an ugly little script to help out.

It’s available for use at There’s even a bookmarklet (!). Any criticisms about brokenness will, I’m afraid, likely fall on deaf ears. It may or may not work for you, and I doubt it will be used by anyone.

So there we go.
