Hi Neil, thanks for the interesting post. This is definitively on our radar for refbase. I’ve just developed an OpenSearch API for refbase which returns standard OpenSearch Atom XML that includes the record’s cite key as well as the formatted citation. I’d love to develop a Firefox plugin for it, but, unfortunately, I also lack knowledge of XUL, maybe some of the existing plugins can work as a good starting point… Use of OpenSearch Atom XML as exchange format would be especially useful since the plugin could potentially work with other applications as well. –Matthias
I tried to leave a comment yesterday with some links but it didn’t go through. I have some saved on del.icio.us that might be helpful:
there was also an article just posted on Hublog about firefox extensions. Hope this helps.
