Universal edit button for wikis – one more reason to install firefox 3?

Some of the biggest wiki providers have launched a new icon to indicate in the browser bar that a page is universally editable. At the moment you need to have firefox 3 installed to see the icon, but it’s hoped other browser platforms will come onboard and the UEB (universal edit button) will become as ubiquitous as the RSS icon.

Nice idea and good to see platform providers working together to produce a simple solution to encourage contributions to wikis. ReadWriteWeb have good summary of the launch too.


  1. Actually, the plugin works in Firefox 2 as well. And with editable sites that aren’t wikis!

    That said, wikis and FFox 3 are both good things, and everyone should use them whenever possible ;-).
