Dear senior Members,I am a 18 year old boy. Just some months ago...I thought of an idea of developing an extension for mozilla firefox...one of the most popular web browsers out in the world. I wont disclose the complete Idea right here but the useful ness of the idea:The extensionm I thought about can be used to significantly reduce the bandwith for high speed connections and time for the slow connections given that the target person does use thw web for visiting mostly news sites, forums and check mails...so all in al a busy person sittin gon a slower connection or a surfing junkie sitting on a fast connection and worrying about the extra 32 KB that get wasted per page due to something he doesnt want on a page.I tried to get help from the MOZILLA site but I think the site is really very unorganised for a beginner like me. The only think I could know about was that I need to know JAVA in order to correctly make the EXECUTABLE part of my extension. I would like to get help from the seniors on the programming front in this forum specially in java.As far as my programming skills are concerned, I dont know much. I have learnt C++ and can create some very good programs for WINDOWS ( for DOS executable ONLY)...also I dont know socket programming in C++ ( one can say that I have no Idea of WinSock).So I want step by step help from my seniors to make me able to create java programs executable right from the DOS to the level it is required for creating my AWESOME concept of saving time and badwidth for an average surfer for MOZILA firefox.I expect a helping hand from this forum. I tried some other So called TECH forums and they just flasmed me off!Vaibhav (*_*)
Hmm...that sounds interesting. But, looking at this part of the sentence:So do you mean that your extension is to get rid of the thing he doesn't want on the page, as in, say, the ads? I think there's already adBlock and RIP for that. Though that probably isn't what you meant at all, but that's how I interpreted it.

As for Java, I know it...but, well, I can't exactly help you until you make it clear on what you need--as in, let's say, how exactly are you going to reduce bandwidth? By the way -- making pages load faster--that reminds me of FasterFox....
Well Arbitratry, All of us use the internet for surfing some ususal sites we are accustomed to. Say I get used to visiting Xisto. So the extension I want to develope will automatically See that the site is being visited regularly so some of the susal items on the page which are loaded everytime will not be loaded after visiting the first page....or might be that even the first page wobn't eat up the bandwidth! And only those things which change (such as the text) will need to be trasmitted. Much info about the page such as meta info and image targets will not be loaded. they will be "DEFINITELY" loaded from cache. Thats all! And if you use this for RSS feeds...can you imaginge how much bandwith we waste downloading the "LOOK AND FEEL" of our newpaer sites which we really are not concerned about but at the same time we can't ignore them!!!???However take me as a beginner and please hep me understand JAVA step by step. I just went through the online JAVA tutorial and I was able to do some small programs which added and multiplied variable. And would you tell if it is possible to make some INTERACTIVE programs in JAVA??? Because all the programs I made had their variables p[redefined in the code itself.
