      Hi Aleks,

      Thanks for the feedback! I've updated the overview page to reflect this now.

      It currently works in Firefox 4+ (due to certain APIs only being available in the later versions of Firefox).

    This is awesome - you're really onto something!

    I've 'liked' the IE Version feature above, but I thought I'd mention it here too - if it can be created it would be a godsend. We have some regular Matrix users around here who only use IE, and they could really benefit from this plugin (especially once the WYSIWYG replacement has moved past its experimental stage).

    Apart from that, and a few things with the WYSIWYG that I see are already in the issues register, I LOVE it.

    This is great, but I've recently installed Firefox (v15) on a new PC and this doesn't work for me anymore. I know it says FF 4-8.x, but it was working fine on my last PC running FF14...

    Hi Guys, great idea with this tool can't believe I only just found it! Hey I downloaded it for Chrome and it looks like the bulk file import isn't working. I believe it might have something to do with Chrome now using the c:/fakepath method. I tried it on firefox v26.0 but it looks like nothing is working on that version. Do you intend on continuing maintenance on this plugin?

    just found this site now, I have successfully downloaded and installed this extension for Chrome but the Firefox one isn't working. ON  extracting the files i realise that the folder has a sub folder whose name is Chrome. I do not know if this is related. looking forward to your response

    Is this plugin still being supported? The Firefox version is out of date, the chrome doesn't work properly - it doesn't save the changes to the files when the syntax highlight is on. 
    are you planning to fix the extensions?
