ErrorZilla Mod

ErrorZilla Mod is a nice little extension for Mozilla Firefox that very simply, adds an image to the error page for down domains, along with some helpful buttons: "Try Again," "Google Cache," "Coralize," "Wayback," "Ping," "Trace," and "Whois."

I saw a digg article about the original, ErrorZilla, today, but I didn't myself really see a point until my buddy Jimi sent me a link to another digg article featuring a link to the Google blog which explained the same extension.  He made a comment about the picture having to go.  I agreed.  It used to be the Mozilla dinosaur in a star.  It was ugly, to say the least.  I changed it to the Firefox logo.  But in addition, I also changed the location of the "Whois" button.  Now, it will use  So, after changing some simple things, I rebuilt the extension and released it as ErrorZilla Mod.

Current Version: 0.2

Get ErrorZilla Mod

Update: I will be modifying ErrorZilla Mod for Firefox 3.  Please wait patiently...  I expect to have a new version in the next week.
