LiveJournal Client Discussions
I've been working on a client for Mozilla (looks and acts a lot like the Visions client), and got it up online at http://deepestsender.mozdev.org
Currently all it can do is post with most options and post to different journals, it can't edit friends or history or check if anyone's updated their LJ, but I'm working on it.
I've only been coding XUL stuff since last Friday, so I'm kind of a beginner - sorry that the source code looks like barf at the moment. I'll clean it up and everything as I go along.
It should work in both Mozilla 1.4 and Firebird 0.6.1. I don't know about older/newer versions but I can't see any reason why it'd die.

How is this different than LiveLizard?
LiveLizard has been listed "Abandoned" on MozDev. It broke at Mozilla 1.3, and doesn't work at all in Moz 1.4 because the Editor system was TOTALLY revamped.
I've been trying to get LL working again. I was hopefully going to take it over, or just write a derivative. This editor problem is kicking my ass, though. All documentation I've found either points to the tutorial written by the LL author, or points to something on the Mozilla.org website, both of which only work on the old system.

Well, for one thing, it works... It also doesn't seem to kill your browser when you try and get rid of it, doesn't hang Mozilla while logging in, has a simpler UI that doesn't fill your LJ posts with a bunch of unneccessary tags... Umm, and it's getting actively developed (by someone who's shithouse at coding, but still, its being worked on). Works in Firebird too.
Basically all I've really wanted is to have the Visions client run in the sidebar; I've always thought it'd be a cool thing to have.
