Updated Lens Workshop Addon

Many of you are familiar with the Squidoo Lens Workshop Addon for Firefox and Chrome – if not, click the link for more information. Anyway, today I have released a new version: v1.4. This is mainly to provide increased support for Google Chrome, but it has also been slightly improved for Firefox users too. I’ve fixed the mess with the dashboard banner (sorry), and removed the now defunct support for Groups.

Firefox Users: If you already have Greasemonkey installed, then all you need to do is install the script again (step 2).

Google Chrome Users: The latest version of Chrome (4.0) has built-in support for Extensions, so all you need to do is install it.

Don’t forget, the Cleaner SquidU script still works on Firefox and Chrome.

If you have any questions, problems or ideas for new features, please let me know.


Disclaimer: this is a 3rd-party addon for Lensmasters, and is not supported by Squidoo.


A Browser Toolbar for Squidoo Lensmasters

Social ToolbarThis news has already been leaked out via a few other blogs, so this post marks the official release of the SquidUtils Toolbar. It is available for both Internet Explorer and Firefox, on Windows, Mac and Linux.

This toolbar is designed to make the job of a Lensmaster easier, by putting some of the most used functions along the top of the browser.

Here are the four main features:

  • Notification of Lensrank updates
  • Instant switch between multiple accounts
  • All the social functions in one place »
  • Easy access to all the tools at SquidUtils

The toolbar had many other features as well, including quick links to all your lenses, groups and comments, a list of all the lens types you can build, plus a quick way to paste tags on to your lens.

All this and more is described here on the SquidUtils Toolbar lens.
