April 21st Release: AddThis for Firefox and Get the Button Code without Registering

At AddThis, our goal is to make it drop dead easy to share online content and make your content shareable. Today, we’ve made two really cool advancements, which help us move in that direction.

Ever have the feeling, “Man! I wish this web page had AddThis on it so that I could share it with my friends” ? Well, I do all the time. So… this is an itch that we decided to scratch. Today, we’re excited to announce AddThis for Firefox.

It’s a plug-in which will put the orange plus sign that you’ve all come to know and love right at the top of your browser. So… whenever you see a Web site that you think is rad and want to bookmark it or share it with your friends, you can share it with just a couple of clicks.

If you’re a power sharer, like me, you’ll find yourself using this thing all the frickin’ time. Oh… and the best part is that the plug-in works with any of the over 40 different destinations that AddThis can share with. Try it out and let us know what you think.

Secondly, we’re very pleased to announce that we’ve redone the get the button code process, made it a little more straight forward, and given publishers the option of getting the code for the AddThis button without having to register for an account. We hope that this starts to remove any and all barriers that could stand between someone and getting the button. We want it to be EASY.

An important note: if you opt to get the code without registering, you WON’T get analytics. If you want to get analytics later, you’ll have to go through the registration process and get a brand new button code. We won’t be able to give you your past analytics

As always, let us know what you think of this release or anything at all. Drop me a comment on this blog post, put up a topic post in the forum, or e-mail me personally – justin@addthis.com

Share on!

Note: Yes, I realize the URL says March and that the title said that for a little bit.  Some how I missed that.  Sorry.  *sips espresso*

    Good move to have no-log-on option – I have seen this with other tools eg whos-among-us and it works well… Should increase your user base :-)

    good post. This new add on is really cool. But I was wondering if its also applicable in all types of laptops. As I can see that most of the screen shots came from apple laptops. Although its said there that its available for firefox, I still want to be sure that it is applicable to all.
