Warning: Can lead to use JUB in an almost facebook kind of way ;)
Recently I was annoyed with the JUB Buddylist always being in an extra window and being covered by other stuff where you are actually working with. Of course this is not a problem if you have two monitors (*sigh* I used to ;) ), but if you are stuck with one, I thought using the sidebar was a good alternative.
It wasn't hard to get it displayed in the sidebar, but I thought it would be cool if you could make it even easier, so easy that anybody could use it. Unfortunately there was no way of controlling the FF sidebar just with JScript (which is a good thing after all), so I was quickly at the point of needing to write a FF extension for it. After some reading, a bit trying, looking (Opensource is wonderful!), cursing about the lack of a debugger (Firebug to the rescue!), it finally was working! I bundled a quick release for the other mods to try, fixed a small display issue that star-warrior (buddy-whore! ;) ) pointed out. Seth gave me permission to host it on JUB servers, and so there it is:
