Scribefire is a Mozilla Firefox extension that lets user blogging easily, and integrated with browser. Now with Scribefire 2.0 , users are offered with a bunch of features for easy blogging pleasure.


I've been using Scribefire for blogging for a year, and love it. Scribefire as a Firefox extension, make it easier to blog without even leaving your browser. Recently Scribfire announced the release of Scribefire 2.0, which includes huge features improvements since the last release.

Major improvements are :

Now you can see that Scribefire offers features thats makes you blogging easily without even leaving your Scribefire window. Before, I was off to Firefox window to search an image on Flickr or to Youtube site to get a video for my post, now I don't need to leave my Scribefire to do that. One thing I currently wondering is the licenses of images searched by Scribefire. I did my Flickr search image through 'advance' option in Flickr website to get Creative Common Attribution Licensed images to be used for my blog posts. Does Scribefire Flickr search result are Creative Common licensed images ?. Yes, I can check the license of the images on the Flickr website, but that wouldn't great as Scribefire is a blog tool thats boast 'easy blogging'.

I believe folks at Scribefire are keep on developing Scribefire, and I do hope new features to come. The developer team is working hard to make sure everything is done properly and bugs are fixed.
