What is Bitcoin Tool?

Bitcoin Tool is a browser extension for Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer, that recognizes bitcoin addresses on every website, and does some useful things with them:
* Links addresses to blockexplorer.com, something for curious people, who want to examine quickly BTC sent, received, and the number of transactions.
* Adds a Select button, that helps when you want to copy-paste the address, making sure no letter is omitted.
* Adds a Send BTC button, that allows for quick and secure sending bitcoins (requires bitcoin_httpd).

Modified bitcoin addresses look like this:



Installation Guide

How to install it on Firefox:
1. Install Greasemonkey.
2. Install Bitcoin Tool.

How to install it on Chrome:
1. On Chrome Greasemonkey scripts are built-in, so you need only to install Bitcoin Tool.

How to install it on Internet Explorer:
1. Install Trixie.
2. Click the Install button on the Bitcoin Tool website, and save the script to Program Files/Trixie/Scripts .
3. Open Tools/Trixie, click Reload and OK.


How to make the Send BTC button work:
1. Set rpcuser and rpcpassword in your bitcoin.conf file. Do one of the three:
  a) either run the standard client application bitcoin.exe with the parameter "-server",
  b) or put "server=1" into your bitcoin.conf, and run bitcoin.exe,
  c) or run bitcoind.exe (included in your standard bitcoin client package).
2. Download and run the HTTP mini-server bitcoind_httpd.exe:
Windows version - bitcoin_httpd.exe v1.1 (size 238668, md5sum: da0107ce32aaceb16055c8d147663519)
Linux version - bitcoin_httpd v1.1 (size 642897, md5sum: 84aae8bab4db4ab52d0a15dfe9861ef7)

The source code of bitcoin_httpd is here, if you need it.


Screenshots

Buying a pdf file on BitcoinService. The bitcoin address in plain text is changed into a link, and two buttons are added:




After proper configuration (running "bitcoin.exe -server" and "bitcoin_httpd.exe") the "Send BTC" button leads to a localhost website:

Anyone else use this? I think it is perfect for keeping Bitcoins a p2p transaction but it relies on an existing user base otherwise it is worthless. People wont want to install plugins before they can shop. Anyone have ideas to increase use?
