2009-12-08  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.
