Twitter has updated their API and my favorite FF plugin/client no longer works. Although Echofon for FF had not been updated since last year, it was still working fine until twitter made the API change. So I now need a replacement for Echofon.
Echofon had a small icon in the lower right of my browser. It showed a number next to it when there were new tweets. I was able to open it and read those new tweets. Nothing more, nothing less. It was small, unobtrusive, and useful.
Everything I have looked at to try to replace it has been large, bloated, and very obtrusive. Twitter and other social networking sites are not life, I don't need to be inundated with all the garbage all the time - but I do follow a few people and would like to be able to see when they post new.
I currently have Yoono installed. But it insists on adding a pinned tab, and a drop down next to the address bar. Annoying.
