Tuesday 08 December 2009 Dublin Core and eGMS Metadata Viewer

HTML and XHTML can contain metadata embedded in its head section. It may contain all kinds of useful information, but web browsers don't provide a means to display it. At the prompting of my internet chum Andy Mabbett, I rewrote an existing Firefox add-on to provide a viewer for embedded Dublin Core and eGMS metadata.

The viewer is available for download from Mozilla Add-ons. It's currently marked as experimental, which is Mozilla Add-on speak for newly released, rather than a warning it might trash your machine. It won't, and there are people who've been running it for several weeks without issue. It is, after all, just a bit of Javascript.
