This is an excellent extension. The developer originally did it for his own use, in collaboration with ubuntu-geek. Every time the forums get an organization update, this developer is right on top of things and issues a new version very quickly.

I highly recommend this.

Wow! This is great! I had something similar set up in my Bookmarks but now I don't need that.:D

Yup I've had this plugin for a while now, it makes life so much easier I can just pop from one forum to another :).

Must have for forum junkies.

I wrote another thing like this, this time a search engine plugin for Ubuntu Forums. Only works for the Google Search, not the proper forum search but still useful for quick searches.

I just found out a little trick with this extension. You can open a forum in a new tab by just simply right clicking on it.:D
