GoogleHotKeys version 1.01 released

Sunrise

I’ve just uploaded the latest version of GoogleHotKeys for both IE and Firefox. The main site links to the addons.mozilla.org site for Firefox, and that may take a day or two to be updated. You can download it directly here until then. Changes include:

  • Pressing N takes you to the next page of search results
  • I’ve disabled the arrow keys from moving you between highlighting terms, since that sometimes was unhelpful
  • Fixed a few assorted bugs, such as the IE version forgetting which link was selected when you returned to a results page, and FF not correctly ignoring the Desktop search link in results pages.

It went very smoothly, apart from the final step of persuading WIX to create an upgrade installer for the IE addon. I assumed that this would just involve updating the version number, but it turned out to be a bit of a rabbit hole. I ended up cheating, and changing the installer GUID, which will result in some duplicate files on disk for upgraders, and a duplicate entry in add/remove programs, but seems to work.
