Fuzzbot 0.7.3 has just been released for the Firefox 2.x series of browsers:


This version of Fuzzbot adds an interface for viewing FOAF data. The
interface unobtrusively floats on top of the current page until it is
clicked. The FOAF viewer will show the individual's name and depiction
if they're available when each tab is clicked. It's very rough at the
moment, but is being released as a proof-of-concept of the Margin
Marks[1] approach to semantic data visualization that Dimitri Glazkov
blogged about six months ago.

A screenshot of it in action is available here:


The current version:

- Runs on Firefox 2.x on both Windows and Linux.
- Can extract RDFa from most XHTML pages in the wild. Please report ones
  that it fails on to me.
- Can display FOAF data (foaf:name and foaf:depiction, only). The
  list of supported data visualizations will expand in the coming
- Contains librdfa, libexpat and libtidy compiled in statically with
  debugging symbols (just for the time being).

Instructions on using it are here:


As always, source is available via git and the plugin is released under
the Mozilla Public License. If it doesn't work for you, please let me
know what browser version and OS you're running.
