So Mozilla Labs recently announced Ubiquity. The wow factor of this Firefox add-on is off the charts. It’s very hard to describe exactly what it is but the closest thing that I’ve seen so far is “a command-line interface for web 2.0 mash-ups”, if that makes any sense…  It would be best if you simply go to the link above and watch the video created by the man who is taking ownership for Ubiquity, as he does a very nice job demonstrating the different things that can be done with it. Keep in mind that it is still in alpha stage (that’s pre-beta), so there are many issues to hammer out and lots of things that are left to incorporate, but the concept is awesome. My favorites after the jump…

So far I love the in-page editing features, such as calculate and translate. I also love the fact that any changes you make persist over reloads and can even be directly sent through an email. I also love the mapping capability. I think that the map-these command is very awesome I just wish it would work in more places than craigslist. Being able to add events to your calendar on the fly is very exciting also (I just wish it worked!!), as well as being able to delete an element from a page. There’s plenty more that I have yet to play with and I cannot wait to see what the next iteration of Ubiquity brings!
