Test Post Using Performancing

This is a test post written using Performancing for Firefox:

Performancing for Firefox is a full featured blog editor that sits right within Firefox. Just hit F8 or click the little pencil icon at the bottom right to bring up the blog editor and easily post to your Wordpress, MovableType or Blogger blogs.
Most of my recent posts have been written using a demo version of Anconia's Rocketpost:
RocketPost blog software is the first productivity app for blogging, designed for serious bloggers and business users. Unlike low-end clients, RocketPost is a complete, standalone editor which puts you in control. It’s the only blog editor with WYSIWYG editing, full local editing and full blog import.
Rocketpost is definitely more polished and a more functional editor at this point in time but it was much easier to set up the interface to Modulator using Performancing.  There is a substantive price difference between the two with the latter being a free Firefox extension at the moment. 

I'm going to use them both for a few weeks and may provide more comparison information at a later time.

Hat tip to Tommy for the pointer to Performancing.

Please do keep us posted...I'm curious to see what happens.

when I first installed performancing I really wasn't sure I wanted it. the first few times I used it I wasn't really sold on it either...but...it's starting to really grow on me. I can see where someone that does a lot of cut and paste and linking to other things could find it quite useful. if it had a spell checker and a way to upload images it would very likely be the way I post almost everything.

It's also possible it has those things and I haven't figured them out yet. but so far I am starting to like it.

There is also something called Qumana at


that I've just started looking at today. At first glance it seems to be pretty good, certainly more complete than perfomancing. I don't know what your interest really is in this stuff but you might want to check it out.
