Hello all english speaking battlelog users!

In the past weeks i started creating a firefox addon for battlelog.
The first idea was to do it just for me, but the huge positive response from the german battlelog board makes this addon growing and public available.

In one week the addon downloaded ~2000 times and rapidly counting up.
All currently active addon users (currently 1000+ per day) loves it and help me to make it better and more feature rich. I made it just for the community, costly free. The community is good to me and i am good to the community :-)

So i proud to present you Better Battlelog (BBLog) - Beta for Firefox.

It comes with a lot of features, for example:

* Heavy extended weapon informations
* Inline Youtube Videos
* Server and Userradar
* Bugfixes
* More...

The full feature list is here: []

If you have any idea or responses dont be shy and send me a request with your feedback.
I created a small and fine request tracker for this addon at []

So at least i hope you enjoy it and give me some feedback.

Looks very promising. The extra weapon info really helps and saves me a few clicks when checking up on stats and comparisons. Making Youtube links into an embedded player works very well. Would be nice if it makes image links work the same way. Really good add-on, so keep up the good work!

Love your addon and can't wait to see what other modifications you'll bring in the future. Maybe even make it compatible with chrome when you have enough time on your hands.
Can't think of anything else right now other than adding the option to blacklist servers and maybe adding a note to remind me why i blacklisted it. Make a separate tab for the blacklisted ones just like the favorite serers tab.

I'll use the feedback link from now on.
Keep up the good work and thanks for making it available in english too.

Image links will not work cause i cannot know what link is a direct image link or not. Most image uploaders uses a image service. Image services almost always show you a complete homepage with image inside instead of the real direct link to a image. So i cannot pick the image from this sort of links (90% of image links in boards are use image services :-( )

But thanks for feedback.

What version do you use?
Currently only Firefox 9 and Firefox 10 is supported. Older FF versions not supported by the addon, and newer FF versions are not available currently.

Will definitely give it a try.

Nice one, but I'm curious how the plugin works. Is it possible to do the same with Stylish?

Very nice mate, will be using this for certain.

May i make 1 request though, in the options there is this.

Com Center Offline User Fix: When you hide the offline users its now be sticky. Battlelog itself loose your personal setting and show always this complete list again when you refresh the site. Battlelog has this feature built-in but it works only sometimes. And we add an extra offline user counter.
Is this possible with the server filters aswell?, i have a set of filters i never change and would love to not have to minimize the filters everytime i come back to battlelog.

No. Stylish is only a css addon that could style a webpage, as far is i know.

BBLog is just a addon that uses a lot of javascript, to modify and re-style the page. Its own written, you will find it nowhere.
You could see all the sources of the addon on the bblog homepage - tab "OpenSource".

I use this and have included a short demo in a video I've just recorded (DJ-Brainnrg, I sent you a mail about this earlier today as an FYI).

You can see the short demo here (the section about BBLOG starts at 09:30): [] (I've linked it to the part of the video which includes the addon).

PLEASE Mods: Change Thread Title - "Better Battlelog - A Browser Addon"

I am so fu.... proud to present :-)

UPDATE + (mostly requested) Chrome Support

After some hours of very hard work i am proud to present this new feature.
Addon now works for Firefox from 5 to 11* and Chrome from 14.0.

For the rest i quote the bblog news:
So much requests reached me to add a support for chrome. So, here it is. From now a chrome extension is also available.
Other improvements: Some typo fixes, if you activated the serverradar you should see now in the serverlist a warning symbol, you not need to choose a server to see the warning.
Another fix in "minor bugfixes" added: The show/hide serverfilter settings box is now sticky (as the comcenter show/hide offline users).
I found a layout bug in the serverfilter settings (little gray box that overlaps content) and i also fixed it.
At least the support for older addon versions was discontinued and you must update to the newest version.

You can update the ff addon via addon manager (rightclick -> search for updates) or manually via the bblog website.
Your browser automatically update the addon but this is for all that cant wait.

Thy for great support of ALL.
