We’re proud to support an effort that’s just launched today in the wiki world, the Universal Edit Button. The Universal Edit Button is a way for your browser to tell you when a page is editable, similar in spirit to the icon browsers show when an RSS feed is available for a page. Here’s what you’ll see on Wikispaces if your browser supports the UEB:
The green pencil icon is clickable and takes you straight to the editor for the page you’re on. And it’s live right now on the millions of your pages here on Wikispaces.com as well as Wikipedia, WikiHow, AboutUs, and many other large wikis.
Right now the UEB is available as a plugin for Firefox 2 and 3, with support for other browsers to follow shortly. Learn more at http://universaleditbutton.org.
