Textarea Resizing

By Deane Barker on July 1, 2005

Resizeable Textarea 0.1a: The guys over at Lifehacker are on my “happy list” today for pointing out this Firefox plugin. It lets you hover over the edge of a textarea, grab it, and resize the box.

I know a lot of Firefox plugins are just gee-whiz stuff, but this is truly something I’ve been waiting for since about three days after I got on the Net. Someone did a DHTML implementation of it that I talked about here, and I loved it so much I was very tempted to write it into a Greasemonkey script. Now I don’t have to.
