Toufeeq,

I have something that you maybe able to help me with.

I took a class in social networking during grad school and did a project to try an analyse a person's behaviour on the internet by means ofthe url's he/she was visiting throughout the day. Basically by tracking your online presence it is possible to figure out what you are doing./ what sort of a person you are.

Now, a feature i want to build is to be able to share your online presence with family and friends ..i.e a little bit like del.icio.us, but live, so say you get a constant stream of the url's i visit, so you get a better idea of the person that i am.

I wrote this first byt using Perl's libpcap (networking lib)and tracking GET requests, then i wrote a script that resides in the mozilla directory and constantly parses the history file., but this was woefully inefficient as the regexp code was getting way too complicated.

Since you have experience ith this stuff maybe you can gimme some pointers on how to integrate this with Mozilla as an extension ?
