Toolbar Now Compatible with Firefox 3.5

The Entrecard Toolbar is now compatible with Firefox 3.0 and higher, including 3.5. For details, see this post.

Some of the details and requirements have been copied below.
  • The toolbar only works with Firefox 3 or later. This will not work with other web browsers.
  • You must have an Entrecard account, the toolbar provides no functionality otherwise.
  • The toolbar should be compatible with Firefox on all operating systems, Windows, Mac and Linux
  • Under NO circumstances should you download the toolbar from any other source than Entrecard itself. Using modifications by third parties may result in the theft of your account information.
  • The Entrecard toolbar does not keep track of any browsing habits or information other than that directly relevant to your Entrecard operations. If there is no widget on a page, the toolbar will pay no attention to it.

Changes and Improvements at Entrecard

Some changes have occurred at Entrecard, all of which should have been addressed a long time ago.

Included in the changes are:

  • Login and out problems have been fixed.
  • Auto-approving advertising requests have been fulfilled, meaning you can automatically accept all advertising requests. This can be found under your "Advert Settings" area in the dashboard.
  • The advertising directory has been purged of the blogs that do not have a widget present. This ensures that you will find more relevant and updated blogs when dropping cards or advertising.
Further changes may be made in the future, so we have to stay tuned.

Ad Prices Begin to Stabilize

While I haven't been as involved in tracking the price of credits, the maximum price is a little over four thousand per day. Some of the blogs that I have on the site have been increasing in value without any additional promotion, so this may be a sign that things are beginning to stabilize.

As you may recall, the paid ads were removed from the system a short time ago and specials on purchasing credits from the site have also gone down (you get more for the same price).

It is still unclear how the new owners will really monetize the site, as the affiliate promotions and ads on the front page/blog likely aren't allowing the site to break even from hosting costs yet.
