Clipple keeps track of text you copy to the clipboard while
using Firefox, and allows you to paste from that history instead of
just the last item copied.
The tiny, 24KB add-on doesn’t require any setup. After a quick
install, just right-click in any part of a page where you can type
text – a search box, say, or an online document – and select the
new “Clipple – Paste” option. Then paste in your pick of the last
15 things you copied to the clipboard.
Clipple adds a new clipboard icon to the lower-right of the
browser’s Status Bar. This allow you to change a few options, such
as changing the number of items to save or raising a particular
item to the top so it can be pasted with Ctrl-V. By default,
Clipple will save your clipboard when you close and re-open
Firefox, but you can change that behavior as well.
The handy Clipple would be all the better if you could quickly
assign a keyboard shortcut to its extended paste. Its author
suggests using one of a few different add-ons such as KeySnail or Vimperator to
set up a shortcut, but doing so would be a fair bit more complex
than using the dead-simple Clipple. See the add-on’s page for more
Still, when many of us are using the browser for tasks we used
to do with multiple different programs, Clipple adds a nice new
feature. Even without a shortcut.
