Create a browser add-on (firefox, chrome, IE)

It would be nice if it was easy to post a bug in a web application the minute you spot it. With a browser add-on you might post the full URL, post variables, request headers and user-agent directly into the lighthouse issue.

The application could expose the lighthouse URL and project, by placing something like <link href="" rel="lighthouseapp" /> in the header. The 'post an issue' button should only be enabled if the application has a lighthouse link.

    Hey Arnold. Thanks for the feedback. We're hard at work on a lot of things for Lighthouse. Part of the reason Lighthouse has an API is so users can build their own tools, and share them if they want. We've had a few cool things built for Lighthouse and Tender by our users. I don't recall anyone making a browser extension for Lighthouse to date though.

    I was not aware that these suggestions ware perse for lighthouse core developers. I though you could just drop anything for anybody, lighthouse related.

    I've never build a firefox plugin. Also I'm already working on more open source projects than I can handle at this moment. However, perhaps someone will read this and pick it up :).

    Ah, sure thing, if it's open anyone can read it and respond. I'd love to see users working on cool mini Lighthouse projects to improve personal workflows and share them.
