Mozilla/Firebird "View in IE" Extension

Periodically, I need to view a page in Internet Explorer. Whether it needs some plugin I don’t have / want in Mozilla, or whether I need to see how a new page is shaping up under a different browser, I find myself perpetually copying the Mozilla address bar, opening IE, pasting it in.

Tedious.

So I wrote a ridiculously simple Mozilla / Firebird extension (which should also work in recent Netscape versions) that adds “view in IE” items to the link and page context menus (the menus you see when you right-click on the page text, or on a link).

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Windows-only right now, sorry.
