We've just released a new version of Fuzzbot[1], this time with packages
for all major platforms, which we're going to be using at the upcoming
RDFa workshop at the Web Directions North 2009 conference[2].

Fuzzbot uses librdfa as the RDFa processing back-end and can display
triples extracted from webpages via the Firefox UI. It is currently most
useful when debugging RDFa web page triples. We use it to ensure that
the RDFa web pages that we are editing are generating the expected
triples - part of our suite of Firefox web development plug-ins.

There are three versions of the Firefox XPI:

Windows XP/Vista (i386)
http://rdfa.digitalbazaar.com/fuzzbot/download/fuzzbot-windows.xpi

Mac OS X (i386)
http://rdfa.digitalbazaar.com/fuzzbot/download/fuzzbot-macosx-i386.xpi

Linux (i386) - you must have xulrunner-1.9 installed
http://rdfa.digitalbazaar.com/fuzzbot/download/fuzzbot-linux.xpi

There is also very preliminary support for the Audio RDF and Video RDF
vocabularies, demos of which can be found on YouTube[3][4].

To try it out on the Audio RDF vocab, install the plugin, then click on
the Fuzzbot icon at the bottom of the Firefox window (in the status bar):

There should be a number of triples that show up in the frame at the
bottom of the screen as well as a music note icon that shows up in the
Firefox 3 AwesomeBar.

To try out the Video RDF vocab, do the same at this URL:

Please report any installation or run-time issues (such as the plug-in
not working on your platform) to me. Happy Semanticizing :)
