Cool new Feature in Ubiquity 0.5.4; Command Discoverability

After upgrading to Ubiquity 0.5.4, I started noticing something very cool. It now prompts with a really simple and unobtrusive reminder that you have commands available for specific sites. Very neat.

The reason I like this is because it’s just too easy to forget all of the commands that are at your disposal. If you have Ubiquity installed and type in “about:ubiquity” in the address bar, you can look at the command list and see what I mean.

This new feature will definitely help me discover new commands. Here’s an example prompt when I visited Amazon today:

  1. Lots of great new features, this one included, but somewhere along the way it lost the ability to select and send images via Google Mail… that’s been a real disappointment for me.

  2. It could use an option to “Never remind me again” or at least some easy way to tell a user how to turn notifications off completely–maybe a bubble directing you to a settings option. But, I have found this to be very useful. :)
