Anything that puts the content in existing tools without requiring the user to break their flow must be a good thing.
Not here. I have to wonder how many would actually use it? One more toolbar means that much less one can see in the browser. One more piece of software to install to slow things down and generally get in the way.
Has the early adopter tried the "Remember Me" function for logging in or is that missing the mark. If "Remember me" not working (there was a 2.5.x version of Clearspace or two that did not), they have fixed it.
There is actually a browser plugin for clearspace already that might be along the lines of what you are thinking about. It's called the Clearfox Plugin and you can download it from Jivespace (http://www.jivesoftware.com/jivespace/docs/DOC-1200). It would be a good starting point if you are thinking about implementing a firefox plugin.
One note, if you do use that as a starting point and you are using the -DpluginDirs jvm parameter, you should know that the first thing the plugin does on initialization is change some of it's own configuration files to generate the firefox xpi file for the specific clearspace install you are using for development. This will cause some confusion if you then try to package up your plugin code and try to deploy it to another clearspace instance.

Thanks for the responses.
I had already looked at the ClearFox plugin and it's exactly what I wanted, except that it's only for Clearspace 2.0. It appears no one is working on it anymore, there are numerous unaswered requests in the comments for a 2.5.x version.
Maybe we'll do it in-house and provide a link.
So, where did that plugin go?
