In any case I’m writing an extension to let me send links to people who are logged into America Online Instant Messenger. AOL just released a ton of developer tools for embedding AIM into your web pages, and a ton of SDK’s but I’ve decided to use the old TOC2 protocol for the project. The reason: I didn’t want to start trying to deploy XPCOM, C++ bindings and all sorts of headaches with my first extension. I want this to be fun, easy, and useful for my first try. Something a little more advanced than Hello, World.
