Looking for testers and spreading the word about this firefox with .bit resolving built in. Here is the story...

So I find this alt TLD company http://www.unifiedroot.com/

They make a closed source version of firefox called sundial:
http://www.sundialbrowser.com/en/download/other/?win32

I dl the linux version and see it is resolving all of their .trailer .dickhead tlds. No plugins, extensions, proxy settings etc.

So I grep the src/bins for tlds. nothing. then for their TLD roots.
http://www.unifiedroot.com/index.php/en/Technology/Root-System-and-Caching-Servers

Bingo.

Extra file libbind.so has them all internally and it is being called by standard libnspr4.so.

I binary search replace with one of the namecoin DNS mirrors:
perl -pi -e 's/93.88.144.138/94.231.81.244/g' libbind.so
Repeat to remove all of their root servers.

Restart firefox, go to nx.bit etc, works great.

Want the source code? Fat chance.

7.) Is it possible to have a copy of the Sundial Browser source code? The lamers FAQ reads:

Hm ... I wouldn't dare use that on a system that I might have a Bitcoin wallet on (or for anything other than a browsing-only VM perhaps), but that is need to see that you were able to hack it to make it work for .bit / namecoin.

Cool!  Can you give us a few dot.bit extensions to try it out?

Nice, thanks--I just registered a .bit last night, hasn't propagated yet. You can try dns.bit, its an easy one to get to.

Why not install dnsmasq and use the server config option to redirect all .bit requests? its a simple one liner and then you get .bit resolution for your entire machine/network not just web browsing..  i've been using it for over a year, works great.

e.g. server=/bit/78.47.86.43

If you dont have anywhere to run dnsmasq, buy a raspberry pi and set it up on that.

Nice. Is there a separate thread for that? Is it open source? Namecoin.com looks real good now!
