    1. browser extension

      I've spent a lot of time in frustrated conversations arguing the case for browser extensions being treated as a first class concern by browser makers (well, one browser maker). But more and more, I've come to settle on the conclusion that any browser extension of the sort that Wildcard is should also come with the option of using it (or possibly a stripped down version) as a bookmarklet, or a separate tool that can process offline data—no special permissions needed.

      (This isn't because I was wrong about browser extensions; it's precisely because extension APIs were drastically limited that this becomes a rational approach.)
