Saints be praised, abcTajpu has upgraded to Firefox 3.0

Sunday, June 22, 2008

AbcTajpu is one of my favourite add-ons for Firefox and after upgrading to beta 3.4, 3.5 and so on I wasn't able to use it anymore. At the same time though I loved the extra speed of the new Firefox and certainly didn't want to go back to 2.0, so I had to deal with not having this add-on for a while. It's now been upgraded though, and people with Firefox 3.0 can use it.

I use it to type in Turkish all the time, because I use the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard instead of Qwerty. Dvorak has an international version where you can type a ^ in front of an a to make an â for example, but there are no Turkish letters there except for ö and ü of course.

AbcTajpu lets you choose which letters you want though, and then you push insert or another key you designate to change it. So when I hit i and type insert I get an ı.

It still takes the extra time it takes to reach up and hit insert but at least I don't have to use Qwerty anymore (again).

As the name suggests, this add-on was created by an Esperantist.
