Anyone still using Ubiquity? (Firefox addon)

Ubiquity is an abandoned mozilla project.
I used to use it all the time on a Pale Moon installation in Windows.
I just saw on the bitbucket page that the community version is still being supported.
I was wondering if the addon ever caught on in the Debian world, and if it's still being used.


Be excellent to each other!

Re: Anyone still using Ubiquity? (Firefox addon)

If you're talking about this:

~$ aptitude show xul-ext-ubiquity
Package: xul-ext-ubiquity         
State: not installed
Version: 0.6.1~pre20111123-1
Priority: optional
Section: web
Maintainer: Debian Mozilla Extension Maintainers <>
Architecture: all
Uncompressed Size: 3,487 k
Depends: iceweasel (>= 4.0), libjs-jquery
Enhances: iceweasel
Provides: iceweasel-ubiquity
Description: browser interface based on natural language input
 Ubiquity was a Mozilla Labs experiment that was in development from 2008 to
 2009. Its purpose was to explore whether a radically different type of
 interface to the Web, a task-centric natural-language-based command line, could
 help get common Web tasks done faster. 
 Ubiquity is still available here as Iceweasel/Firefox extension.

...I followed the link in the APT description, and it appears to be dead.
