Mozilla Labs Ubiquity Plugin Makes Mashups Easy

Posted to Software  |  Nathan Yau

Mashups have been around for a while now, but for the most part have required at least a little bit of web development. Maybe it’s a line of javascript or thousands. Mozilla Labs, with the Ubiquity plugin, aims to make mashup-making accessible so that everyone can view data how they want everywhere on the Web. Use natural language like “map this” to stick a map into your email or get Craigslist offerings out of the list and onto a map.

For version 0.1, the application looks interesting. Check out the demo (or even install the plugin yourself):
