  1. Nice extension, but I don’t like giving my Google password to a FF extension. I’m really concerned about my privacy. I prefer to use another FF extension that doesn’t require to enter your Google password: the extension I’m talking about is called Open IT Online (http://www.openitonline.com) and it allows to open several kind of documents and you can also choose which online service to use among Google Docs, Zoho and ThinkFree. I think it is worth to give it a try.

  2. Thanks for the tip George! I understand your privacy concern but I still believe it’s “almost 100% safe” to use FF extensions, especially when downloaded from the mozilla site directly.

    However, I’ll give yours a try as it’s always better to be safe than sorry… 🙂
