Ping Fire is ready for open testing. I’ve been using it these past few days with no problems. The download link is below. Unfortunately, I still need to get Ping’s blessing before the application will work for anyone but me.
- Download and Install PingFire.
- Add the “Ping” button to a menu. You can do this by going to View >> Toolbars >> Customize.
- Provide the extension with your Application Key. (You can find your key by going to: http://ping.fm/key.) From within Firefox, go to Tools >> Add-Ons. Find “Ping Fire” in the list then click the “Preferences” button. Enter your User Name and your Application Key into the fields provided then click “Ok.”
Editor’s Note: About an hour after this post the people at Ping let me know that PingFire was approved! So now everyone can use it. Just remember that the plug-in is still in beta.
