Google Launches Blog Comments Firefox Extension

    December 15, 2005

Google has launched a new Blogger Web Comments Firefox extension that shows surfers what bloggers are saying about any page they’re viewing in their browser.

The results come from the Google Blog Search engine. Now imagine they build this functionality into the popular Google Toolbar. This will be scarier to marketers than Wikipedia. Here’s what the Extension does to the page. Note right hand corner and the splogs that continue to clutter Google’s results.
