HEY!

You know how phoneboarding is kind of shitty because it's a pain in the ass to embed tweets and youtube videos and, well, basically anything? Well now it doesn't have to be. Maybe you've heard of my Hipinion Paster Chrome extension / Firefox add-on. Maybe you've even used it. I've gotten comments from at least one or two people saying that they wished it worked on mobile, and that's enough for me. So, guess what! Now it does.

Here's what you need:

1. An android device.
2. Firefox for Android.
3. the Hipinion Paster add-on for Firefox for Android.


And that's it! Now, you can do everything on your phone that you could do before with Hipinion Paster for desktop. This makes it way easier (ESPECIALLY ON MOBILE!) to do things like:

- Embed youtube videos (it even accepts short links, eg, youtu.be/abcdefg, which are common on mobile)
- Embed tweets (it even chops off all those query params, ie, those extra question marks that normally prevent your tweet from being embedded)
- Embed soundcloud links
- Embed instagram posts
- Embed images

There's just one slight difference on the mobile version. Instead of accessing the add-on's functionlity through the right-click menu, we access it through the Firefox toolbar. Here's some screenshots:

First, copy whatever link you want to embed into the clipboard.

Then, when you're ready to paste your link, just open the Firefox toolbar menu, which should be in the top right for most devices:

This should open up the toolbar menu. Scroll down and at the very bottom you should find a button labeled "Hipinion Paste". Just click that thing and it will embed your link real nice with the bbcode generated and everything.

it's nice. saves time and energy which can be used for literally anything else.

For those of you who use chrome (which I'm sure is most), let me just say that firefox is a really good browser, better than chrome in many ways, especially privacy, but also performs better in many ways. I think it's worth making the switch to firefox even without this nice little phone-boarding bonus. My two cents.

If you have an android device, just download firefox for android and get:

oh yeah, warmjets, chrome (or any chromium-based browser) works fine in desktop mode; so does firefox.

But for MOBILE, you gotta use firefox for android.

just looked this up. I don't think I have this. I think maybe I would need a newer version of android for this. Anyway, whatever, the mobile add-on works just fine.

I just switched my default browser to Firefox btw, and I'm already digging it. I even replaced the shortcut to chrome on my home screen with a shortcut to Firefox.

btw, here's a really cool and interesting article about Firefox's rendering engine, which I read a while back. It's really sick:
